Bug#401218: xserver-xorg-video-i810-modesetting: After X is started, switching back to console: console is corrupted
> After X is started. switching back to a text console ("Ctrl+F1" as
> example), the text console just "flickers" and is completly unusable.
Thanks for the feedback. i810-modesetting is a development snapshot, a
lot a new code has been put into it in the latest code. Unfortunately
that latest version requires xserver 1.2 (X11R7.2), which we cannot
bring into Debian unstable until after etch is released. Hopefully the
new changes will have fixed up the console video state.
It's possible we'll have the new version ready in experimental first,
depending on how much longer etch takes to finish.
