           Summary: hang on setting video mode without kernel modesetting
           Product: xorg
           Version: git
          Platform: x86-64 (AMD64)
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: medium
         Component: Driver/Radeon
        AssignedTo: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org
        ReportedBy: estellnb at gmail.com
         QAContact: xorg-team at lists.x.org

Newer versions of the radeon driver have problems setting the video mode if
kernel modesetting is not enabled. The computer hangs for just a while and
stays irresponsive; sometimes changes can not be applied (xrandr) which does
especially affect game playing.
  Even worse there is no response in me asking for a fix of kernel modesetting
so that I will likely have to boot with it for a long time in the future:
"externel monitor does not work with kernel modesetting" -
