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):
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.
Red Hat Linux 8.0. kernel-2.4.18-14smp.

Right now I know what version you're using, but please always
indicate the exact ver-release in rawhide and beta bug reports.
Version-release of XFree86-* packages is given as an attachment (id=80124) of
the output of (rpm -qa|grep XFree86).
Abraar, is this problem still present for you in RHL 9? If so, can you
try the XFree86 RPMs from rawhide in RHL 9?
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.
Thanks for the update abraar.
