I track Rawhide on my Toshiba Tecra 8200 laptop. It has a Trident
CyberBladeXP video card.
When I finished syncing to Rawhide yesterday, which included upgrading
X to the above quoted packages, my X display quit working. Instead of
normal operation, I get a completely white screen. For the first few
seconds of X starting up, I can see the "x"-shaped mouse cursor, but
then that disappears into the whiteness, too.
If I switch out of X and to a virtual terminal, or if I kill X and get
thrown back to a virtual terminal, the video card stays garbled and I
can't use the terminals. Most of the time the terminals are black
with white vertical strips every character column, but a few times it
turned the terminal background orange and the characters yellow.
I tried rebuilding the SRPM for X.Org in FC3 Updates, so I could
downgrade and get a working X again, but the compile didn't seem to
want to succeed with GCC 4.0. (I haven't yet tried installing the
binary RPMs from FC3 Updates, I suppose they'll install if I have the
proper compat packages installed.)
Anyways, I just thought I'd report that X.Org 6.8.2 doesn't play well
with Trident CyberBladeXPs.
Other than that, thanks much for the high-quality, bleeding-edge,
surprisingly-stable Rawhide fun!
