Description Need Real Name 2002-10-12 09:48:13 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
There seems to be a problem with VTSwitching on Radeon 7500 when using the
XFree86 CVS RPMs. No hanging, just a minor glitch.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install XFree86 CVS RPMs from ftp://people.redhat.com/XCVS/i386
2. Restart X
3. Switch to tty1, then switch back to tty7.


Actual Results:  When switching back to tty7, the screen freezes for a second
(with a messed up image of your desktop at the moment you switched to tty1).
Then, comes a blinking and after that you actually have control again and
everything works as expected.

Expected Results:  There should be no freezing or blinking.

Additional info:

Red Hat Linux 8.0. kernel-2.4.18-14smp.
(rpm -Uvh [...]) went fine. No problems at upgrade time.
See attachments for more details.

Right now I know what version you're using, but please always
indicate the exact ver-release in rawhide and beta bug reports.
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2002-10-13 06:34:37 EDT
Version-release of XFree86-* packages is given as an attachment (id=80124) of
the output of (rpm -qa|grep XFree86).
Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2003-05-16 02:40:56 EDT
Abraar, is this problem still present for you in RHL 9?  If so, can you
try the XFree86 RPMs from rawhide in RHL 9?
Comment 7 Need Real Name 2003-05-16 04:29:33 EDT
Oops. Sorry about that. Completely forgot to close this bug.
This issue is fixed in the XFree86 packages that ship with Red Hat Linux 9.
Closing with resolution CURRENTRELEASE.
Comment 8 Mike A. Harris 2003-05-16 04:53:08 EDT
