Last modified: 2018-04-11 12:33:18 EDT
Description of problem:
after a yum update, in which my ATI radeon-driver was updated, the font gets defaced. looks UGLY, you can't work with it

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
i didn't try?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. update your radeon driver
2. wait some time (sometimes the font is fine, sometimes it isn't)
Got the same problem on a FireGL V3100 (R400) after updating to
However, xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.9.0-62.fc10 fixed it for me.
It is available on Koji :
Flo, could you test -62 and report ?
seems to work for me!
should be added to the updates
Switching to Verified as a fix is pending.
Florian, thank you for confirming.
No, this is not VERIFIED. Please, anything above ASSIGNED to maintainers. Actually this is not even properly bug triaged.
Reporter, please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available) 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 (if you have one) 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.

the xorg-log. was created for another purpose, but the font glitch was present, too
Created attachment 326821 [details]
my xorg.conf. everything except the synaptics section was created with Xorg -configure
sorry, but i cannot try all that with the glitching driver, because i need my system running, and with the newer driverversion everything works.
that's why, i do not want to start without my xorg.conf, too.
however, i created the xorg.conf with Xorg -configure, what seems to me like autodetection, and i only changed the synaptics section.
my graphics card got always recognized as ati radeon mobility 9800 to be handled with the radeon driver
btw: do i have to attach files to bugzilla, or can i post a link to it, too?
Uncompressed files attached to bugzilla are much better than external links as they will stay in bugzilla forever.

Reporter, could you please test with xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.9.0-62.fc10 from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=73971 ? Does it help?
Reporter is already running -62 and reported that this fixed the problem
(see comment https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=475555#c2 ).
