Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 420761
Display turns off...after the last updates
Last modified: 2008-02-22 02:46:40 EST
Description of problem:
After the recent updates, something seems to go wrong with xorg...
Randomly the display turns off (like when it go to sleep mode) and I can show
back my desktop doing: ctrl+alt+f2 and after ctrrl+alt+f7
restarting xorg with ctrl+alt+backward
I use the open source ati driver. The problem isn't reproducible...it happens
randomly when I surf the web....
There's something wrong in the updates! I use fedora 8 since the 8 nov. It was
PERFECT...but in the last week one of the updates has given me this problem... I
reinstalled the system....same problem....
Flash-plugin also updated... but the last time I had the problem
(http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=921086&postcount=20) it happened
clicking in a simple PHOTO in an article!!!!
At this point, we're going to only be taking security fixes and major stability
fixes into this release of Fedora. However, we still want to ensure the bug is
fixed in the next version. We'd appreciate if you could test Firefox 3,
available at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html or now shipping
as the default in Fedora rawhide and provide feedback as to whether it still
exists so we can file a ticket upstream to try to fix it in Firefox 3 before it
The bug has been fixed by the last xorg-ati update :D the problem was in the
open source driver (with fglrx, no problems)
So, sorry for not closing this bug, I didn't remember :D
ps: fedora 8 now is a great rock of stability, I'll try firefox 3 beta for
helping in debugging ;)
