I am new to the list, so my apologies if I'm not following the correct
I have recently installed Fedora 11 on a machine with an X1650 XT video card.
When I try to start X with the radeon driver, I get a blank screen with only a
bit of garbage at the top. The keyboard and mouse are unresponsive, and I
have to power off the machine. I have tried disabling DRI, which results in an
equally useless display, but I get a mouse pointer, and I can kill the X
server and return to a console. I've also tried disabling kernel mode
setting, and that didn't help.
Driver version = 6.12.2-14
X Server version = 126.96.36.1991-1
kernel version = 188.8.131.52-167.fc11.i686.PAE
Relevant lspci output:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon X1650 XT
(Primary) (PCIE) (rev 9a)
01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon X1650 XT (Secondary)
(PCIE) (rev 9a)
I have an Xorg log that I can supply. I wasn't sure if that was too long for
the list or not.
Thanks for any help!
