Xorg 1.5.3 - VTs are broken while in X
I've got a strange bug on newly set up boxes (i tried Ubuntu and Gentoo). When i try to switch to a VT from X, I get a black screen with a blinking cursor. No matter, what VT and if switched with Ctrl+Alt+Fx or with chvt x. Before starting X or after killing it, i cann access all my VTs without a problem.
My setup: kernel-2.6.27-r6, xorg-server-1.5.3., xorg-x11-7.4, nvidia-drivers-177.82.
I tried different nvidia-drivers, Xorg and kernel versions, everything works fine with older Xorg-versions, all nvidia-drivers versions have that problem with the new Xorg. There are no problems with the nv-driver.
EDIT: I forgot the strangest thing: (I disabled the hardware autodetection in xorg.conf)
In Ubuntu VTs get completely messed up after killing X - the screen gets grey, at the positions where cursor "went" i get black vertical lines. Sometimes strange "psychedelic" ( ) symbols appear on the gray area. Anyway, I accidentally deleted my backup xorg.conf, so I had to copy one over from Gentoo. However, what I forgot, was that my mouse-id differs in Ubuntu and Gentoo by one character, so the mouse didn't work first. As I killed X, however, the VT was perfectly normal! After couple of tries I found out that even though VTs still stay black while mouse doesn't work, VTs only get messed up after killing X while mouse works.
