Description louisgtwo 2003-02-21 19:33:44 EST
Once I installed phoebe3 every time I shutdown from gnome I get a blank
screen. Before I could see the daemons shutting down. Also, if I run init 3 from
init 5 all I get is a blank screen. When booting into init 3   and starting X I
get a blank screen when leaving X. This is with all current updates from rawhide

This is from a stock system

I can confirm the same behavior with XFree86- using the nv driver. 
Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-25 08:20:18 EST
Try again with XFree86- which I believe fixes this
issue on all hardware.  Setting to MODIFIED, please close as RAWHIDE or
set to ASSIGNED depending on your test results.
Comment 8 Sammy 2003-02-25 09:46:42 EST
XFree86- fixes the problem. Please close. 
Comment 9 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-25 10:01:15 EST
Beauty.  This was a problem that was not driver specific, but was part
of the ramdac/xf86Cursor.c fixes that went in in the last few days.

Closeing as RAWHIDE

Where can I get this version? rawhide has not synced in a few days.
