Angry Can't ctrl-alt-F2 while running xinerama

Running Fedora 10. Can't switch to another session if running dual screen xinerama. Single screen works fine. Dual screen just produces a black result. Previous 180.x drivers produced a "gray" screen. The 180.18 driver is now a "black screen".

The switch is taking place, only the video is not working.

Come on guys! 180.27 still won't switch sessions properly when running dual screens.

I would think that this should be a small fix since it is just a suspension of "X".

Please please please fix this!!!!!!!

I recently added a second monitor (in a separate, discrete X screen -- no TwinView or Xinerama), and I am now suffering this exact same bug. VT switch to text mode always worked before with a single screen, but now I get a black screen with a blinking cursor. I can actually log in by typing blindly (verified by looking at "ps" output after switching back to X), but nothing shows up on the screen. Also tried a terminal reset using the "reset" command, but that didn't help. Using nvidia drivers 180.37.

I confirm. Interesting, though, is that I no longer get a blinking cursor on the text-mode VTs while X is running. They changed something!

Hi all!

I recently updated to Fedora 10 (from F8) and also experienced problems
when switching to text consoles. The solution for me is to use xdm rather
than gdm and using evdev rather than kbd/mouse drivers in xorg.conf.

I'm not sure if this will help in your cases, but you may give it a try ...

regards

Bernhard

Haven't kbd and mouse been deprecated for years? I've always used evdev.

I'm using KDM 4.2.3 and am seeing the problem. Do you assert that there is an identical bug in both GDM and KDM?

Probably, but for me, they worked flawlessly for years :-)

With kbd/mouse driver in xorg.conf, KDM didn't worked very well for me:

When trying to type in the name for the login, then typically the first letter
was not recognized so i had to type it twice. When then trying the enter
the password, then all of a sudden a lot of "bullets" show up in the
password field, although no further keys have been typed at that moment.
Switching to text console with CTRL+ALT+F2 didn't worked. So i switched
to the console using the KDM menu (had been logged in as root on console),
but then, when typing something, there have been just garbage
characters and CTRL+ALT+DEL didn't worked any more ...

Didn't tried it out KDM with evdev, yet - i might give it a try.

regards

Bernhard
