Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 496316
Unusable video with xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.7.0-1
Last modified: 2009-04-20 18:19:49 EDT
Description of problem:
I upgraded today to:
in the hopes that some of the KMS+UXA issues were resolved. However, the resulting video (both without an xorg.conf, or with a minimal xorg.conf specifying 1920x1200 resolution) is unusable. It appears to be interlaced and shifted (see the attached photo of the login screen). The initial plymouth graphic is displayed correctly, but as soon as GDM displays the login screen the video is out. I logged in anyway, and the screen stays in this unusable mode. The monitor reports that it is operating at the correct resolution (1920x1200@60).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.Remove /etc/xorg.conf and 'nomodeset' from /etc/grub.conf
Unusable interlaced screen
Beautiful KMS+UXA nirvana
Additional info: Display native resolution is 1920x1200@60. Adding 'nomodeset' to /etc/grub.conf, and creating an xorg.conf that does not specify UXA provides normal (EXA) operation.

Seen here too on X3100 graphics with this driver.
Any better with kernel -100+?
Just upgraded to:
Yes, the problem is resolved, at least for my G45/X4500HD.
Unfortunately, KMS+UXA is still unstable on G45/X4500HD. That's a different bug though (Bug 496516).
I upgraded to today's rawhide including xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.7.0-1.fc11 and kernel-18.104.22.168-100.fc11; and the problem does indeed appear to be fixed.
Yeah, fixed in rawhide, closing.
