Description Godi 2003-05-17 11:07:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021207

Description of problem:
After the computer (Dell Precision 610 with Riva 128 graphics adapter w/ 4 MB
RAM) is restored from power save mode (no screensaver, BIOS power management
disabled), the picture is distorted (most of the inital picture is replaced by
random noise; Redhat 8 with identical settings of XF86config still works fine on
the same machine).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start X (as window manager, KDE and Gnome have been tested)
2.Wait for powersave
3.Wake-up computer and watch screen

Actual Results:  Screen is distorted from the inital state it had before power
save sets in. After a "swipe" over the screen with an open window or a refresh
of the window manager, everything is back to normal. 

Additional info:

There was a bug reported for FreeBSD that caused Xfree86 to crash completely
with Riva 128 graphics adapters. This bug was treated as bugzilla bug #71 by the
Xfree86 team, and a patch was released for bugfix release

Ok, I just checked, and that fix isn't in my rawhide packages yet.

Here is the checkin log though:
