Description Patrice Dumas 2008-09-17 10:52:29 EDT
Description of problem:

X hangs at startup, only the grey screen with little x, no mouse.
When I downgrade to
things work. A later version worked too, but rawhide mirrors 
only offer the last one these days, so I took F-9 package.
Killing X is not enough to get things back to normal, a reboot
is needed.

With the latest kernel 2.6.27-0.329.rc6.git2.fc10, nothing works.

With kernel-2.6.27-0.323.rc6.fc10.i586 things work.

Still not working with kernel-2.6.27-0.372.rc8.fc10.i586 and xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.4.2-9.fc10. This kernel also doesn't work with xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.3.2-2.fc9.i386.
Comment 4 Patrice Dumas 2008-10-02 07:44:09 EDT
The combination kernel-2.6.27-0.323.rc6.fc10.i586 and xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.4.2-9.fc10 doesn't work either.
Comment 5 Patrice Dumas 2008-10-20 08:57:51 EDT
The latest packages in rawhide don't work better. Additionaly some key
combinations now kill X. I have currently reverted to a mix of F9/F10 
packages that work 


I'll wait for some comments to resume testing.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 7 Vedran Miletić 2009-09-06 03:47:42 EDT
Any changes in current rawhide?
Comment 8 Vedran Miletić 2009-10-15 14:54:07 EDT
Reporter doesn't reply after more than a month, and this bug is too old to be relevant. It has probably been fixed in later releases of intel driver, when bugs that appeared during rewrite were ironed out. Closing.
