Subject: [gentoo-user] Inordinate delay switching from X to tty with Ctrl-Alt-Fn

1 Hello, Gentoo.
3 In the last day or two, it has been taking FOREVER to switch from
4 X-Windows to a virtual terminal with, e.g. Ctrl-Alt-F2. Here, forever
5 means around 3 seconds. It used to be instantaneous.
7 Switching between virtual terminals remains instantaneous. So does
8 switching to X-Windows with Alt-F7.
10 Looking at logs, I see that xorg-drivers-1.20 got emerged on Tuesday (two
11 days ago). This is an obvious suspect for the problem.
13 Has anybody else seen this, or has anybody a more precise idea of what's
14 gone wrong and how to fix it?
16 Thanks!
