How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. just boot or startx 2x.
Actual results:
garbled screen. 

Expected results:

Additional info:
I tried using the xorg.conf of my gentoo config and the same results,
intermittent garbled screens. seem to be the driver (radeon), but cant be sure
yet. I did try all the display managers (kde/gnome/other - blackbox) and got the
same results. so, this leads me to think its the driver. this is a 7+ year old
laptop (vaio gr250p).

Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2008-05-19 09:57:34 UTC
Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as
individual uncompressed file attachment using the bugzilla file attachment link

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

my xorg log running radeon driver

added xorg log as requested. will try running without a xorg.conf and report
back, gary

Comment 7 g. artim 2008-05-20 03:13:55 UTC
I did note that when i <alt>+<cntl>+<backspace> to exit, the first time I use X
i get a message:
"error setting mtrr (base=0xdf000000 size=0x01000000 type=1 invalid argument (22)

I think mtrr's are used for setting i/o storage as fixed..the little i know of
this, but was just reading about it. Does this shed any light? btw the vesa
drive works fine and I can run it more than once between boots. -- gary

Comment 8 g. artim 2008-05-20 03:36:24 UTC
forget the mtrr, get the same when I use vesa driver, but the vesa continues to
work after stopping and restarting X.

Comment 9 Dave Airlie 2008-05-22 00:15:33 UTC
again two bugs here the M6 and RV610 are very different chipsets and the fix
won't be the same for both could the RV610 reported jump onto bug 444542 which
is more likely the issue they are seeing.

I'll have to look at the M6 issue.

Comment 10 Bug Zapper 2009-06-10 00:58:31 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 11 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 17:30:04 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
