Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 583116
please update xorg-x11-drv-vesa to 2.3.0 in Fedora 13
Last modified: 2010-04-27 23:05:02 EDT
Description of problem:
I get hard freezes starting KDE with xorg-x11-drv-vesa 2.2.1 under VirtualBox 3.1.6. Upgrading to a homebuilt version of xorg-x11-drv-vesa 2.3.0 fixes them, so it would be great if 2.3.0 could be built for Fedora 13.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.2.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in to KDE when running F13 under VirtualBox
Hard system freeze at the end of the splash screen
Login works and shows me my desktop.
Koji has F12 packages for 2.3.0, and simply rebuilding them for F13 (to deal with the Xorg 1.8 ABI bump) worked.
Currently xorg-x11-drv-vesa-2.2.1-2.fc13 < xorg-x11-drv-vesa-2.3.0-1.fc12
so this breaks upgrade path. Also F12updates vesa won't work because
of ABI compatibility of X server.
xorg-x11-drv-vesa-2.3.0-1.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
xorg-x11-drv-vesa-2.3.0-1.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update xorg-x11-drv-vesa'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/xorg-x11-drv-vesa-2.3.0-1.fc13
