Description Matthew Miller 2007-10-07 08:36:16 EDT
Description of problem:

Top row of 20 or so pixels are pushed off the top of the screen; bottom 20 are
all a duplicate of the real bottom line. There's also a several-pixel-wide dark
gray vertical line about one-quarter of the way from the left.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-drv-ati - 6.7.195-1.fc8.i386

and did not happen with  6.7.194-2.fc8.i386.

How reproducible:

Always. I ran system-config-display --reconfig to generate a new conf file, and
that didn't help. The pattern of video corruption is always as described above.

Additional info:

Radeon Mobility M6 LY

1024x768 laptop LCD.

I just tested and the problem also occurs with 6.7.194-3.fc8.i386 but goes away
when I back out to 6.7.194-2.fc8.i386 again. From the changelog:

* Fri Oct 05 2007 Dave Airlie <address> 6.7.194-3
- radeon-6.7.194-upstream-fixes - Upstream LVDS fixes
  improve chances of working on more panels.

Ooops -- or not. :)

Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to

update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be
reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional
