Description Chaim Frenkel 2005-07-23 03:00:09 UTC
Whenver the Xserver (driver i810) is started all VTs screens are blank. Whether
switching via Alt-Ctrl-Fn or exiting the Xserver. Nothing is visible.

The keyboard is still active and the Xserver can be restarted. Only the text is
not visible. 

Changing the xorg.conf from "i810" to "vesa" avoided the problem.

Current configuration

Fedora Core 4
kernel 2.6.12-1.1387_FC4smp
