Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 408001
LCD blank on Thinkpad z60m
Last modified: 2018-04-11 03:00:00 EDT
Description of problem:
I upgraded to Rawhide today and X fails to display anything on the Thinkpad's LCD.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rawhide on a z60m
2. try to boot
3. watch screen do nothing
This happens using system-config-display as well. I should note that the
machine is using the latest F8 kernel, as the rawhide kernel fails to boot on
BTW, you have a broken upgrade path from F-8 for this driver. I'm sure that
will be corrected shortly anyway though.
Ok, so I finally got a working rawhide kernel and X starts now. Odd. I have no
idea why X would require a rawhide kernel to work.
kernel-2.6.24-0.66.rc3.git7.fc9 to be exact.
So, is this working for you?
Yes. The latest issue is the DRI being broken bug.
