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
  3. If you are using the Test Day live CD image, you may see multiple xkb errors when switching back to the graphical desktop - this is a known issue, it does not need to be reported
