Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2011-10-03 18:01:28 UTC
Moving to 6.3 radar, no further updates to the vesa driver are planned for 6.2 except to correct regressions.  If this scenario worked in 6.1, please move this back to 6.2.

Comment 4 Jiri Koten 2011-10-04 13:31:52 UTC
Same issue is in 6.1 with xorg-x11-drv-vesa-2.3.0-1.el6, it is not a regression.

Comment 6 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 07:01:18 UTC
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 7 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-11 02:09:20 UTC
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.

Comment 9 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-08-03 18:46:11 UTC
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request.
You may appeal this decision by reopening this request.
