Last modified: 2008-03-27 07:36:03 EDT
Description of problem:
Screen repaint issue or computer lockup with openchrome xorg driver if AGPDMA
option is enabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel >= 2.6.21
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use openchrome xorg driver on any VIA K8M800 or VM800 IGP (probably others too)
2. Enable the AGPDMA option (defaults on most chipsets)
3. use the computer and wait for the screen corruption or the crash
screen repaint issue or crash
Fixed in upstream kernel :
Could this be backported to rawhide kernel and possibly F7 and F8 too ?
I link to a bug report that as not been closed, but it was confirmed to fix the
pb for several users in openchrome mailing lists.
this should be fixed in rawhide now.
Would it be possible to get this fixed in F7 and F8 too ?
