Comment 5 Ivan Mironenko 2007-11-09 21:06:17 UTC
I have updated my system to Fedora 8 and the bug is still present.
When I push "Enable Desktop Effects" in gnome, xorg crashes and I am back to
login screen.
I have added new xorg.conf and xorg.log

I also have had this bug in the last Fedora releases (on a laptop equiped with a
ProSavage KN133 /TwisterK).  The bug is still there, on my updated Fedora 8 system.

In addition, if I hit Ctrl-Alt-F8, the display and keyboard dies (while the rest
of the system is up).  Hitting Ctrl-Alt-[F1-F7] works normally.  This behavior
is probably not part of this bug.  Perhaps Ivan can test this?

Comment 7 Bjoern Rasmussen 2008-02-02 10:51:01 UTC
Isn't this the same bug as 426743?

Comment 8 Ivan Mironenko 2008-02-02 22:04:49 UTC
The bug is not the same because in 426743 all OpenGL applications fail to start
and return "wait event returned -14", but Xorg server works fine after that.

However, the patch provided for the bug 426743 solved Xorg crashes as well.

I took already patched rpms with kernel DRM modules and xorg-x11-drv-savage from   
and now all 3D applications run fine (although I have not tried 3D desktop yet)

Comment 9 Bjoern Rasmussen 2008-02-03 17:43:04 UTC
Thanks Ivan!  The patched kernel and the driver worked well for me too!  It even
fixed the Ctrl-Alt-F8 problem.  Thanks again :-)

Comment 10 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 07:16:38 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 11 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 07:06:57 UTC
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
