1.165.1. RHBA-2011:0080: bug fix and enhancement update
An updated xorg-x11-drv-ati package that fixes a bug and adds an enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The xorg-x11-drv-ati package provides a driver for the X.Org implementation of the X Window System, for ATI cards.
* On certain Dell machines with ATI RN50 video controllers, an internal error (IERR) may have occurred when switching between a virtual terminal (VT) and an X session. This was caused by the driver incorrectly resetting a component of the graphics processing unit (GPU). With this update, the driver no longer attempts to reset that component, and switching between an X session and a virtual terminal now works as expected. ( BZ#608894
All users of xorg-x11-drv-ati are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue and adds this enhancement.
