Description

This test case tests whether virtual terminal switching works 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 (unless you need it for basic X operation to suceed)
  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. Switch to a virtual console: ctrl-alt-F2
  5. Log in to the console, 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
