  • Display corruption on initial start of X

    I use Fedora 20. I have an HD7950 card driving three monitors. When using the open source AMD drivers with glamor acceleration, my X display is corrupted on first startup. It looks like this:

    When I restart X (ctrl-alt-backspace), the system seems to "think" for a while (the monitors go into sleep mode), and then after a minute or so the display comes up fine. Subsequent restarts of X work fine as well.

    Here is the Xorg.0.log for the first (corrupted display) start:
    Here is the Xorg.0.log for the second (good display) start:

    The biggest diff between the two logs seems to be that on the first start there is some strange output for a "RADEON(G0)" which does not exist on the second log.

    With glamor acceleration disabled, the X server starts normally.

    Can anyone help?
