Description of problem:
When X starts it displays just black screen.
Does not matter if I turn off modeset ( add nomodeset kp )
Setting severity and priority on high since we are so close to F10 final.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest rawhide updates as of 07.11.2008
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start laptop in runlevel 5
2. Start X in run level 3
Not a black screen.
Worked fine in F9
We aren't doing modesetting on Intel chips yet, so 'nomodeset' won't make a difference.
What intel chip is it? 'lspci' or an Xorg.0.log would help here.
I'm guessing this is a duplicate of bug 461205.
Hum I attached the Xorg.0.log taking a look at the above bug mentioned.
Sorry, I missed that - not enough coffee, I guess.
Anyway, as I guessed, you've got an Intel 855GM, same as the other bug. I'm going to close this as a duplicate - that one's already on the F10 kernel blocker list.
