Xorg.0.log with active KMS for ATI Radeon X800
Description of problem:
On a current "rawhide" system, locking the screen via "System > Lock Screen" crashes an active running GNOME session provided that (1) KMS is enabled and (2) the chosen screen saver module is an GL based one like "Juggler3D".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start GNOME session.
2. Set GNOME screensaver theme to "Juggler 3D" or "GL Hanoi".
3. "System > Lock Screen".
GNOME session aborts and leaves the user facing a mouse pointer on top of a black screen.
Screen is locked, and chosen screensaver module sets in.
- Choosing a non-GL screensaver theme allows to lock and unlock the screen
- Adding "nomodeset" to the kernel boot options allows to restore a fully
functional GNOME screensaver.
- After the GNOME session has aborted, the typical acoustic signal of the
HV supply of the attached HP A4576A 21" CRT can be heard when switching
voltage off/on. Then, a mouse pointer appears on top of a black background
which is first accompanied by the Fedora spinner.
Switching to a VT seems to work thanks to the acoustic feedback of the
HV supply but the screen remains entirely black.
However, typing ctrl-atl-del allows to reboot the system in controlled
- Installed packages include:
Note the last line of Xorg.0.log related to the failed attempt to switch to a working virtual console:
