           Summary: screen completely garbled with ati open source driver
                    when doing ctrl+alt+f1
           Product: xorg
           Version: 7.2
          Platform: x86 (IA32)
               URL: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Driver/Radeon
        AssignedTo: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org

If I do a "ctrl+alt+f1" when X is running with the ati open source driver, the
comp actually switch to consolle but the screen is totally garbled and it is
impossible to read. This doesn't happen with fglrx driver, so that I'm able to
switch between X and consolle and back with no problems.

This garbled screen occours also shen shutting down the system, the text shown
upon shutdown cannot be read.

I have this problem since breezy (Ubuntu 5.10), so I normally use the fglrx
driver altough binary only. I have a ATI X700 video card and recent packages in
feisty didn't solve this.

This bug has been manually forwarded from launchpad #90607
