Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 489952
i845G, flickering between Plymouth and GDM
Last modified: 2009-05-20 14:25:20 EDT
Description of problem:
Modesetting is working, but there is a "flickering" between Plymouth's "progress screen" and when GDM appears.
Basically, after seeing the Fedora splash screen for half a minute or so, the screen goes completely black for approx. 20 seconds, and then the screen changes to a blue background and GDM appears.
I am using the "fade-in" Plymouth plugin, though it seems to behave the same for other plugins as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start up the system
No flickering or mode changes should occur from initrd right through to GDM
I will attach an Xorg.log file in a moment.

Also, here's the output of `dmesg'.
This bug is no longer occurring in latest Rawhide. The transition is quite smooth.
(still no mouse cursor, but that's a separate issue).
So this bug can be closed, thanks.
Thanks, good news. We might have a fix for the missing cursors soon too.
