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)... is the ati
wrapper going away then? If you need any more information / debug output,
just tell.
