Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 446544
Xorg unusable on Matrox MGA 400
Last modified: 2018-04-11 09:38:55 EDT
Description of problem:
My Matrox MGA 400 framebuffer has severe artifacts under F9. It worked
perfectly under F8 just before the "upgrade".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. notice the mangled screen. The effect is a bit similar to
a TV with screwed up interlace. Alternate lines are over by approx.
an inch (at ~100dpi)
mangled screen output
clean screen output
strangely the ascii terminals on alt-ctl-Fn also have a bug (perhaps related?)
Every other letter is missing. This is also a new bug since fedora-8.

xorg log file
I forgot to mention, the garbled graphics also exists in the fedora-9 installer.
It is possible to install anyway, which I did, hoping it was just an installer
this has been fixed for a while in the current fedora. Feel free to close.
