Xorg log file from session with modesetting
I am running F11 on a Dell Optiplex 960 with an Intel Q45 graphics controller.
If I boot with the nomodeset parameter, the system works OK.
If I boot without the nomodeset parameter, the graphical boot progress is displayed correctly. However, the next screen that should allow me to select a user never appears. Instead, the monitor has a message "signal out of range". If I press C-A-F2 to get to a virtual console, that is visible.
I do not have any xorg.conf file.
Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command
yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'
Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .
Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.
If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
