Description Thomas J. Baker 2008-11-12 09:43:24 EST
When I tried it last week from koji, at least on my intel based laptop, the VT switching was messed up. ALT-Fn would switch VTs and when you tried to switch back to VT1, the screen stayed black though you could see the cursor. I had to switch back to the 1.5.2 version.

Are you sure you have upgraded system? It looks very much like duplicate of bug 467636, which was fixed ages ago.
Comment 2 Thomas J. Baker 2008-11-12 12:14:17 EST
I'm sure as I had to downgrade to get it fixed. I'll try the latest build again just to double check.

I just tried it again and it is just as I described. I don't have a xorg.conf.
I included the Xorg.0.log.old as I just had to reboot to recover.

It is weird. Peter, it seems  bug 467636 was risen. It was risen indeed.
Comment 6 Peter Hutterer 2008-11-12 23:39:00 EST
The update to 1.5.3 resurrected it because the fix got lost during the upstream cherry-picking. Please try xorg-x11-server-1.5.3-3 available in koji now.

Seems to have fixed it. Thanks.

Peter -- note that if you want newer builds tagged for Fedora 10 right now, you need to make a request to rel-eng (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ReleaseEngineering/FinalFreezePolicy)

Comment 9 Peter Hutterer 2008-11-13 20:54:53 EST
we'll leave 1.5.2-12 in for now, it doesn't suffer from the bug, and 1.5.3-1 never got tagged for F10 anyway.
