Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please add drm.debug=0x04 to the kernel command line, restart computer, and attach

* your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available),
* X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log)
* output of the dmesg command, and
* system log (/var/log/messages)

to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link above.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

No file /etc/X11/xorg.conf  created on system.

Comment 5 Warren Jasper 2010-07-28 13:48:56 UTC
The problem does not occur any more.  I removed nomodeset from the kernel
command line, and the X comes up correctly.  The only time it did not was
after I did a fresh install, and the monitor was blinking trying to sync
the video card with the monitor.  Now it does not happen.
I'm at a loss to explain.

Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2010-07-29 13:05:53 UTC
Let's close it for now and hope that it was just some installation quirk. Please, reopen with new versions of files if it happens again.
