Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 426737
text and graphics are not correct at logout
Last modified: 2018-04-11 08:01:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Using an old Radeon (7200 QD) the text and graphics are not correct after
logging out of Gnome session. Both the GDM screen and text consoles are affected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The background of the X11 controlled screen only displays in the lower third
of the display. User selector box is okay.
On the text consoles, there are remnants of the boot process messages, and the
cursor is not where the typed characters appear. [The cursor is several lines
below where the typing is displayed.]
As a showdown -r proceeds, the display of text gets more and more mangled,
becoming unintelligible and displaying random color and character junk. The
restart succeeds, and the display is normal until the X11 starts up.

does this still happen with the latest rawhide drivers?
Not happening as far as I can tell.
The X display is fine.
I saw scrabled text during shutdown, but GDM had produced a traceback and
AFAIK we can close this status RAWHIDE
Thanks for letting us know.
