Default Scrambled Text - After recent update

Hello everyone,

This morning I updated my system (Fedora 14) and after rebooting it I
get this wierd behaviour on text rendering (terminal window, firefox,
everywhere): the text gets scrambled (smudged). I also found this new
bug which is exactly what I'm experiencing:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=672344

When I look at the updates I did...my only suspcion is the glibc package
(and related).

Does anyone else here have the same problem?

Thanks,
Jorge

It is true that glibc was updated yesterday to:
glibc-2.13-1.i686

But I am nor seeing what you see.

Thanks Aaron. It turned out - apparently - that it was the "video mode"
I specified in the kernel line in GRUB (because otherwise I don't get
the graphical boot).

The usual: "the last update is usually the culprit" ...led me to believe
it was related to glibc. I didn't know that by booting with an
incorrect vga value would cause such issues when the desktop is already
up.

I don't have the problem anymore (after removing the vga parameter). I'm
still not 100% sure though ( I don't know that much on low-level graphic
issues).

Regards,
Jorge
