Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 253366
Monitor is switched off when starting X with xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.6.193

Description of problem:
I'm with fedora devel. After upgrading to xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.6.193 this problem
appeared. When I exec startx and the X begin to start - the monitor
is switching off for abour 4-5sec and it is looking like when system is
rebooting. OK, it is maybe not a bug, but this switch off/on thing is a bit
scary because my monitor was repaired 3 times after such switch off/on things,
although this was with older nvidia video card. And one question - if it is not
a bug is it possible this reset or what is called to be skipped, because it was
working fine without it before that version.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.6.193, not sure about xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.6.192, can't find
this version anymore, but it began in August (I think 1-2 weeks ago - around
15th August or something), so must be 6.6.193. This problem does not appear in
6.6.3-4 from fedora 7.90.
At every boot. It happens only once - at the first start of X, then it is not
happening, next time X is starting faster without this switching off.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot the system.
2. When X begin to start (or in my case with initdefault 3 start with startx)
the monitor switch off for 4-5sec and then switch on again.
Monitor is switching off for 4-5sec at first start of X.
As in older versions not to switch off the monitor when X is starting.
Not sure about xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.6.192-1.fc8
Video card ATI Radeon 9550.
Although nothing visible in the log I'm attaching the diff from Xorg.0.log
between 6.6.3-4 and 6.6.193-2.

can you please retry with the 6.7.19x driver in rawhide?
the 6.6.19x series ended badly :-)
It seems the problem is fixed. Thanks.
