Description of problem:
I just installed RedHat 9 and found that it does a similar thing that bug 50004
was about. When you log off or reboot the screen just fades to white. I am
running RH9 on my Dell C800 laptop.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Select reboot or log off
Actual Results: The screen fades to white.
Expected Results: the system should reboot or bring you back to the login
I have run into the same issue as bug 50004.
I have dug deeper and it seems to only happen with Gnome. KDE works just fine.
I have had this white screen happen to me when I log out of my computer. I have
a Pentium 3 & ASUS board. I can still log in. I can also select the
options/buttons on the bottom left of the screen even though I cannot see them.
I just reported the same problem with my c800 laptop.

XFree86 4.3.0-5 or later in rawhide has some fixes for similar problems
to this one and may likely resolve this issue as well.

Just updated to 4.3.0-6 and logged out and back in. After logging in did a
ctl-alt-f1 and bingo--white screen of death locks up whole machine. I noticed
before that while in kde the ctl-alt-backspace relaunches X. This does not work
for me in Gnome so I am wondering if the earlier comment about kde working but
gnome does not provides a clue as to where to look for this problem. Just a thought.
I am still getting the white screen of death randomly when logging out. It is
begining to be more annoying than the blue screen of death in windows. I will
attach attach the log file and config file. Someone surely can figure ddcprobe
out--after all ms did.

Also, I still cannot get 24 bit color, only 16 bit. The screen does some sort of
wrap when trying if you select 24 bit and is not readable.
