           Summary: [radeon] machine freezes when X is stopped or second X
           Product: xorg

Bram Senders reported this bug a couple weeks ago. He has a PowerPC Mac Mini
with a Radeon 9200.

"The machine freezes when the Xserver is stopped...  Just a hard freeze when I
try to logout, or shutdown the machine, or restart gdm; anything that kills the
X server causes the entire machine to lock up."

There's a log availabel at

Disable DRI, switching to PCI bus type or changing AGPMode didn't help. Only
reverting from 6.8.0 to 6.6.193 helped.

Agustin Martin reported a similar problem. And Roger Leigh added:
"It works perfectly if I booted the system with
"video=radeonfb:1680x1050-32 at 60" on the command-line.  I can now switch VTs at
will, as well as start and stop X, shut down the system, etc. without problems.
However, booting with "video=ofonly" results in all the problems mentioned

It might be an issue with the OF framebuffer, or the attempt to restore
the framebuffer when X terminates or VT switches.  IME, ofonly doesn't
come back when you end X, but previously you just got a black screen
rather than a lockup."
