Dear listmembers,
to whom it may concern: I use an AGP RX2600Pro card from MSI. When
configuring
as described using

sax2 -r -0=fglrx

the string
Section "Device"
BoardName "RX2600Pro"
#BusID "1:5:0"
Driver "fglrx"

"BusID" causes trouble, the driver cannot start 3D acceleration. Messages

The solution is _very_ simple: comment out the line
"BusID" and everything (besides the good old mutex-errors) seems fine, 3D is
functional.

Sounds weird. Is this a new bug introduced with 8.45?

Best regards,
Stefan
