xorg config file

If use software cursor, switch to text console, then switch back to X, the screen is full black.

Reproduce step:
1, set Option "SWCursor" "true" in xorg.conf;
2, start X;
3, chvt 1
4, chvt 7
5, screen is full black.

My platform: GM945

libdrm 2.3.0

       commit f3b72c59e5000bcdb07cbdf080e09c55b9826eff
xserver 1.4 branch

If not set SWCursor, it works to switch VT.

I can't produce with your xorg.conf on 945gm here with xserver master. Does it happen only with xserver 1.4?

Comment 3 WuNian 2008-07-28 18:53:33 UTC
With master branch(xserver, 2D driver), the bug also exists on my 945GM.
If remove "SWCursor" option, VT switch is OK.

I still can't see on thinkpad R60e, so I assume it's a build issue, pls check it, or feel free to reopen if this is still an issue.
