dmesg (with KMS)
Description of problem:
Text mode consoles display nothing when using KMS.
(Perhaps due to using a monitor with a bad EDID?)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Whatever's on the testday-20090909-x86_64 image
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the test CD
Watch a couple lines of kernel text appear, and then nothing at all until X starts. Booting into runlevel 3 gives nothing at all, but blindly logging in and running startx will start X.
Text mode consoles work.
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R200 QH [Radeon 8500] (rev 80)
Monitor with a the bad EDID is a ViewSonic E70fb (manufactured September 2003)
Monitor with the valid EDID is a ViewSonic 14ES (manufactured August 1995)
