Hi everyone, I'm using an ATI Radeon X1650 8x AGP card with a Pentium 4
board. When gdm is about to start X, I get a blank screen and a totally
unresponsive computer, no ctrl-alt-backspace or anything, and the
monitor turns off because it is receiving no input. I need to hard reboot.
I just started using this new ASRock motherboard because the usb ports
on my old motherboard were shot, but the 3D acceleration did work on the
Everything works fine when I boot with DRI disabled. These problems only
occur when I try 3D.
I've tried several things, like switching between XXA and EXA, forcing
PCI mode, bypassing gdm and typing X in a virtual terminal, adding no
options to the device section, none of it makes a difference.
is my xorg.conf
is my Xorg.0.log from a hang
