18 alpha does not initialize graphics on MBP 8,2
Last modified: 2012-11-14 08:19:31 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora 18 alpha does not initialize graphics correctly on EFI intel macs. This is an MBP 8,2, with a radeon card, but it may affect others.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Procure a radeon mac.
2. Boot fedora 18 live USB
3. Watch display
Display freezes once the radeon driver is enabled from the generic.
Display works, and Xorg starts.
Probably related to the various issues in:
Does Beta TC 8 help this any? There were some Mac related fixes in the kernel that went into that.
TC8 provides support to getting the radeon card to work at boot, but the i915 still changes the display to black when attempting to switch to it. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=765954
OK, we'll close this one out and track the intel issue in the other bug.
