photo of textmode
Description of problem:
I have a MacBook of early 2006. And modesetting does not work well yet. Xorg does not work see bug #505536.
But there is a small but distracting problem in textmode too. If I do not pass the nomodeset kernelparameter the last line of the screen is blinking in randomly patterns. The blincking is synchronized with the text insert position marker.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@macbook fm]# uname -a
Linux macbook 188.8.131.52-167.fc11.i586 #1 SMP Wed May 27 17:14:37 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with modeset enabled and pass a "3" for textmode
2. look at the bottom of the screen (sorry for the bad quality of the photo, it is just to make the issue clearer)
last line of pixels blinking
I do not have this anymore. So cannot test.
