libpciaccess causes hang when X starts
Last modified: 2009-05-07 19:20:43 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-0.10-1.fc9@x86_64 works fine
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system with libpciaccess-0.10-2.fc9 installed
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.

I'm using the radeonhd driver:
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
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?
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.
