My system locks up when I switch to a virtual terminal from XServer.
I envoke XServer with:
xinit -- Xvesa :0 -screen 1280x1024x32 -3button -mouse /dev/psaux,5 -dpi 96
-shadow -nolisten tcp
/opt/fdo/bin/xcompmgr & startkde
I am used jhbuild to build the server from CVS yesterday, version reported is
11.0, vendor release is 6,600. I can't find a build number anywhere.
I should probably mention I use the Vesa frame buffer in linux as well and I am
running the 2.6.3 kernel.
The lockup was casued by the -shadow option, I am not using it anymore and it
so, you use both VESA for the console and X ?
it looks like a bad idea to have both using the same 'driver'
each one could have a different 'internal state' for the same piece of hardware
so, messing the two together could bring you big trouble (like garbled screen at
i don't know what part of video memory this option tries to copy to main RAM
(what shadowing means to me).
closing it as 'not a bug' as it is more likely a 'miss-configuration' (using
vesa on both sides looks bad IMHO)
if someone disagree, fell free to reopen
