2.4.22-pre1 X screen blank problem

2.4.22-pre1 X screen blank problem

Post by Alessandro Suard » Fri, 27 Jun 2003 00:10:11

Just as the RedHat 8.0 kernels do, 2.4.22-pre1 enters the
  screen blanking due to inactivity but it doesn't unblank
  the screen anymore. 2.4.21 doesn't have this problem.
I can type commands and have them executed, but I don't
  see what I type (I do this from VCs after switching out
  of blind-X by Ctrl-Alt-F2 or first available tty anyway).

Dell Latitude C640, Radeon 7500 mobile, A07 bios, ACPI.

Any further info available to interested people :)

Thanks, ciao

1. configuration dependency with PCIGAME fix 2.4.22-pre1

Hi Marcelo,

Please consider this patch for 2.4.22-pre2. When pcigame is chosen as
modular (CONFIG_INPUT_PCIGAME=m), and trident as builtin
(CONFIG_SOUND_TRIDENT=y), trident will not link because it won't find
pcigame_attach(). This patch adds a dependency for trident on pcigame,
but only if pcigame != n. Patch is against 2.4.22-pre1(cvs).

Patch works, confirmed by the original bug reporter.
