I have an HP DC7700 with an ADD2/DVI card driving a 1600x1200 NEC
Multisync monitor, using the stock Fedora 9 intel driver.
Sometimes, after logging out of a Fedora 9 gnome session, the screen
goes all blue. Bringing up a text session (Ctrl+F1) works OK, but X will
not run properly after hitting Ctrl+F7 or Ctrl+Alt+Backspace. Restarting
the computer is the only solution for clearing the blue screen in X.
I haven't found any useful log messages. It is an erratic problem.
Has anyone else seen this? It's really annoying!
Swapping ADD2 cards made no difference. Swapping monitors made no
Installing xorg* rawhide didn't work at all, too raw I guess...
