Description Joachim Kunze 2007-02-05 15:45:05 UTC
Description of problem:
After installation of Fedora 6.90 and the reboot my IBM T22 hangs with a black
screen. Even switching to a console is not possible.
After rebooting the system I've booted into initlevel 3 and did a
system-config-display --rebuild -> the result was the same - I ended up with a
blank screen

After updating to the new savage driver xorg-x11-drv-savage-2.1.2-1 -> still the
same blank screen

Attached you'll find the Xorg.log and a xorg.conf which works after configuring
it manually

Can you attach the X log from the unsuccessful startup as well?

Comment 6 Joachim Kunze 2007-06-18 05:44:13 UTC
I reopened the bugreport after having access again to a T22. I installed the
final F7 and I ran into the same issue - the xserver didn't start after launch
of system-config-display during firstboot.
I had to do hard reset as also switching to another console didn't work anymore.
You'll find the logfile as requested in my last reply from 2007-06-15.

Resolution: I've used my manually created xorg.conf I've already posted and it
works again fine.

... seemed to be a hw-related bug as an exchange of the board has resolved the issue
