Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53378
Frequent X hangs when changing Video modes
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:57 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Switch virtual consoles.
Successful console switch.
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.

Xserver startup log
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.
Closing as CURRENTRELEASE, although it is a duplicate of 52919
Sorry if I misfiled this one. I currently do not have an IA64 machine for
testing. I agree that this be closed.
