(Orginally reported on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/beta/show_bug.cgi?id=140253 )
Description of problem:
As soon as X is restarted the virtual terminals have vertical stripes going
across them and no text appears (although the blinking cursor moves around the
screen in the expected fashion as if things were working correctly). Everything
works as expected with resolutions lower than 1400x1050 or if the depth is not 24.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-184.108.40.2064 (Fedora Core 3)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn the machine on.
2. Let it boot and start X and wait for a login.
3. Press Ctrl-alt-backspace.
4. Press Ctrl-alt-F1.
Screen with vertical stipes going across it and a blinking cursor.
Normal virtual terminal login text.
lspci output for the card:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 RF/SG AGP
At some point during the shutdown process the console manages to clean itself up
and appear correctly before the computer turns itself off.

You should attach the files here, as your link is to beta bugzilla which
is probably going to be broken from time to time.

Problem still exists with xorg-x11-6.8.2-1.FC3.13 . Now that FC3 has been out
for a while I'm unlikely to test any xorgs from rawhide as rawhide is starting
to drift far enough away that awkward problems occur (not to mention the
I probably won't be able to give much feedback on this until FC4 or FC5 (depends
on when the machine is upgraded).
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
Is this still a problem?
I don't know :) The machine that had this card is long gone so I think it's reasonable to close this bug - I know I can't/won't do any more testing on it...
