I haven't received comments on my patch for
so I'm asking for help here. Sorry for the noise towards the beginning of
the bug report (filed last spring), but the basic problem is that "ati" does
not give control to "radeon" with many X300/X600/X700/X800-series cards (16
duplicates in Ubuntu's bug tracker), thus giving no X for many newbies. A
symptom of the problem is that "(WW) ATI:  PCI Mach64 in slot 1:0:0 could
not be detected!" is seen in Xorg.0.log, which led me originally to see why
it's even thinking there should be a Mach64 there.

I'm in no way familiar with any of code, so I'm just proposing
something since no-one else is doing it. I've heard about the
autoconfiguration branch of (to be included in 7.3)... could that
perhaps be a reason why people are not interested in this? Is the ati
wrapper going away then? Whatever the case, if you can figure out a solution
with the help of my findings, I'd be more than happy. And if you need any
more information / debug output, just tell.
