Description Martin Ebourne 2008-04-26 15:27:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Upgraded libpciaccess on an otherwise fully up to date Fedora 9 Prerelease
system, causes X to hang on start.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libpciaccess-0.10-2.fc9@x86_64 breaks
libpciaccess-0.10-1.fc9@x86_64 works fine

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system with libpciaccess-0.10-2.fc9 installed
Actual results:
When X starts at the end (rhgb not installed) it changes to the graphical mode
and completely hangs the system. The picture is whatever was there from before
it booted with some corruption.

Expected results:
GDM login screen.

Additional info:
I'm using the radeonhd driver:

Comment 2 Martin Ebourne 2008-05-19 19:00:09 EDT
Has anyone looked at this? I'm still having to run with the old libpciaccess but
the new one has shipped with F9. Probably other radeonhd users have this problem
but don't realise the cause.

How's 0.10.3 working for you?
Comment 4 Martin Ebourne 2009-05-07 19:20:43 EDT
Confirmed libpciaccess-0.10.5-1 and xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd-1.2.5-2.8.20090411git from rawhide (F11) are working fine. No longer have a F9 system to test with.
