Description Gustav 2008-11-01 12:58:20 EDT
Description of problem:  If I switch from a GUI to a console using ctrl-alt-fx (where x = 2 thru 6), when I switch back to the GUI using ctrl-alt-f1 the GUI appears with vertical lines spaced equally across the display.  Restarting the X server by logging out (if I was logged in) or executing ctrl-alt-bksp resolves the issue.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible: Every time!

Steps to Reproduce:
1.From GUI logon screen execute ctrl-alt-f2
2.From resulting console execute ctrl-atl-f1 - yields vertical lines in display
3.From GUI logon with vertical lines execute ctrl-alt-bksp - results in clear display
Actual results: vertical lines in GUI

Expected results: normal GUI

Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2008-11-03 11:19:57 EST
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 config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

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.

There is also an Xorg.0.log.old file in the /var/log/ directory.  Let me know if you would like that as well.

Xorg.0.log after running without xorg.conf

booted to F10 Live, mounted partition and renamed /etc/X11/xorg.conf to ~.old
booted to HD - resolution reset to 800x600
             - switching to console and back again resulted in vertical lines
reset display to 1280 x 1024 using system-config-display
Xorg.0.log uploaded as requested

I see this as well.  What's more, if I then switch to another VT a second time and switch back, the X server doesn't come back at all, and I have to reboot my machine.
