Description Martin Wilck 2001-09-07 14:00:21 EDT
Description of Problem:
Machine hangs often after console-swicthing to and from X
Happened to me even in the installer when switching back to 
the X configurator after Xserver test (which was fine).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Switch virtual consoles. 

Actual Results:
System hangs.

Expected Results:
Successful console switch.

Additional Information:
This is the usual on-board ATI Mach64 card (32MB).
I did not experience these problems with RH7.1 (stable),
so this is probably an XFree 4.1 issue.

A fix for this is now being tested.

This bug was misfiled as i386.  I just caught that from the log file.
This problem was a bug in the kernel console code, which is fixed
now in our latest kernel.

Please confirm the new kernel fixes this.

Sorry if I misfiled this one. I currently do not have an IA64 machine for
testing. I agree that this be closed.
