This test case tests whether virtual terminal switching works successfully with the Nouveau video driver, with kernel mode setting enabled. You must be using a video adapter supported by the driver, and Rawhide.

How to test

  1. Ensure the 'nomodeset' kernel parameter is not enabled in your bootloader configuration
  2. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a valid file that uses the nouveau driver. If you are using the live image, ignore this step
  3. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
  4. Switch to a virtual console: ctrl-alt-F2
  5. Log in to the console (as user root with no password, if you are using a live image to test), and run a test command
  6. Switch back to the graphical desktop: ctrl-alt-F1
  7. Switch back and forth again

Expected Results

  1. Switching between the graphical desktop and a virtual console should work correctly
  2. Both the virtual console and the graphical desktop should be displayed correctly, and this should work through repeated switches between the two
