You will find in attachement the required files. Here is the original message
without the enclosed document inside :


I have a Medion MD 97521 with two graphics systems :
1) Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD 0046
2) ATI radeon 5165 HD.

It is what is written into the computer specification on paper and what I can
check when I boot with Microsoft Windows 7. Both graphics system are working
with Windows 7, so no hardware is broken.

I try to use one of both with Ubuntu 10.10 2.6.35-27-generic i686.
I installed the requied packages, among them :
- xserver-xorg-video-intel for Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD 0046.
- xserver-xorg-video-radeon for ATI radeon 5165 HD.

See the result of lspci -nn in attachment. The card is identified as a 4650
instead of a 5165.

When I try to use the ATI graphics system, with the xconf.org in attachment, I
got the error "(EE) No devices detected".

Which means that ATI graphics system is not recognized by Xorg.
But it is written into the log above that :
- ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 is managed.
- ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series is managed.

So it should work if the ATI 5165 HD card should be well managed / recognized.
What is a bug.

Today, since the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD 0046 is not managed
either by the intel driver, I can only use my ATI card in low resolution with
the fbdev driver.


You reply "The mixup with HD4650 is expected, AMD rebranded HD4650 as HD5165 we
don't follow such rebranding."

Should I understand that this ATI HD5165 graphics card is not supported?
