Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2009-11-05 17:17:12 UTC
Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages (at least F12Beta, but even better if the very latest versions).

Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-11-16 12:50:58 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

Georg does it stills happen ? Why are you disabling KMS ? What do you do to trigger the bug ? (does using firefox on some site trigger it ?).

Comment 4 Georg Wild 2009-12-07 21:51:10 UTC
This modesetting option came into my grub.conf during F12alpha, when I otherwise wasn't able to boot correctly.

In the meantime I switched to radeon driver (not radeonhd). This works!
This old bug occured from time to time without a specific application. I cannot say whether this old bug still appears.

I was not able to reproduce it, but it is not absolutely clear, whether this is only by fortune.
Nevertheless, close the bug.
