           Summary: X starts only with vesa driver after world update
           Product: xorg
           Version: 7.1
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-521619.html
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P1
         Component: Driver/Radeon
        AssignedTo: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org
        ReportedBy: meteora at swissonline.ch

As this is my productive workstation and I had to study a lot I did not make a
world update since about 4 months. Till this last world update everything worked
fine. I could use open or closed source ati drivers for my ati radeon x1300 le
pciexpress. I had just to switch the loaded module in
/etc/modules....bla..kernel-2.6 and the driver in xorg.conf. 

But after this world update only the vesa driver brings my a graphical ui,
though it is very slow. 

Now I downloaded a new gentoo liveimagecd and setup my system from the
beginning. After three days of compiling I ended up in the same situation. Still
only x with vesa driver, although the radeon and fglrx modules are built and
loaded at boot, x refuses to start. 

I opened a thread in the gentooforum and they think it looks like a bug. Should
I open a bug at ATI too, or do you first take a look at it ?

I apologize if not beeing correctly reporting but its my first bug ;-)

Looking forward for a soon fix as I desperately need my x and vesa is so damn

Is there another alternative for vesa that would be faster ? VGA is worse I was

For any further information please just ask me and i will try to provide
anything needed to solve this as quickly as possible.

Best Regards

PS. This PC has a an onboard graphic chip intel i915 which is unused. I did
ignore it, i mean no device in xorg.conf for it as there is no monitor pluged
there. And unfortunately it cannot be deactivated in BIOS.
