This test case tests whether fast user switching work successfully with the Radeon video driver, with kernel mode setting enabled. You must be using a card supported by the Radeon video driver.

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 known-good configuration file that uses the 'radeon' driver
  3. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
  4. Create a second regular user account, if you do not already have one available
  5. Trigger fast switching (in a default Fedora desktop, click your name at the top right hand corner, then select Switch User)
  6. Log in with the second user account
  7. Test switching from one account to the other and back again, with both logged in
  8. Check the GLX and Xv test cases on both logins

Expected Results

  1. Fast user switching should work correctly, with no display issues on either desktop
  2. Accelerated OpenGL apps and video playback should work on both desktops when two logins are active
  3. If you are using the Test Day live CD image, you may see xkb errors when switching user - this is a known bug and does not need to be reported
