Default unable to switch vt

Hi,

I hope this to be a bug and not a really bad joke. I am completely
unable to switch vt with current rawhide kernel
(2.6.27.4-65.fc10.x86_64) and it works with an older one
(2.6.27.3-27.rc1.fc10.x86_64), there is no reaction on pressing
Ctrl-Alt-F[1-6]

I have
- no graphical boot, console is vesafb
- default runlevel 5
- updated /etc/event.d/tty1 to be same as tty[2-6] as suggested by
wwoods (I want X on vt7)
- I am logged in GNOME

with last kernel from koji

[root@localhost ~]# ps ax | grep gdm
2596 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/sbin/gdm-binary -nodaemon
2657 ? S 0:00 /usr/libexec/gdm-simple-slave
--display-id /org/gnome/DisplayManager/Display1 --force-active-vt
2658 ? Ss 0:05 /usr/bin/Xorg :0 -nr -verbose
-auth /var/run/gdm/auth-for-gdm-Ng4bML/database -nolisten tcp vt1

[root@localhost ~]# tail -5 /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Failed to switch consoles (Input/output error)
Failed to switch consoles (Input/output error)
(EE) intel(0): First SDVOB output reported failure to sync

vs. with older kernel

[root@localhost /]# ps ax | grep gdm
2598 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/sbin/gdm-binary -nodaemon
2658 ? S 0:00 /usr/libexec/gdm-simple-slave
--display-id /org/gnome/DisplayManager/Display1
2659 tty7 Ss+ 0:05 /usr/bin/Xorg :0 -br -verbose
-auth /var/run/gdm/auth-for-gdm-K8iWt5/database -nolisten tcp

and no errors in Xorg.log


snippet from grub.conf:

title Fedora Rawhide
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.27.3-27.rc1.fc10.x86_64 ro
root=/dev/Linux/Rawhide vga=792
initrd /initrd-2.6.27.3-27.rc1.fc10.x86_64.img
title Fedora Rawhide last kernel
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.27.4-65.fc10.x86_64 ro
root=/dev/Linux/Rawhide vga=792
initrd /initrd-2.6.27.4-65.fc10.x86_64.img

Unfortunately, that's not all it takes due to the way plymouth and gdm interact.

https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2008-October/msg02516.html

If you really want X on vt7, you will need to add 'rm
/var/spool/gdm/force-display-on-active-vt' in prefdm or somewhere else
before gdm starts, or it will still force X to start on tty1. If you
run `ck-list-sessions', it will probably show that you're on tty1 in
X.
