Uh-oh. The voltage levels look really broken.
Can you post a BIOS here (you can get it with rhd_conntest -d [PCI-Id])
so I can verify what's happening here?
Maybe also retry with git master, Egbert fixed an out-of-bounds access.

I've attached the requested BIOS. If, for some reason, the attachment doesn't work or gets blocked somewhere just let me know, and we can arrange another transfer method.

I'm willing to rebuild radeonhd from git. My planned radeonhd experiments were delayed by the arrival of a box of parts, which took up my free time for a couple of days as I backed up data, rearranged some disks, and built a new machine ("crashdummy") out of a dying motherboard and one of the newly freed up hard drives. Just in time for me to become another statistic in the H1N1 pandemic!

That was late last week. My brains are just coming back online yesterday and today. Should be able to test git version by Friday, though.


5. Those 65.281 V voltages in the Power Management section look scary. You folks aren't going to fry my new card, are you?! ;)

Luckily, you're safe, because of two things:

- Voltage setting is not implemented yet ;-)

- The AtomBIOS routines seem to validate the voltage against their
maximum range

Good to know... as long as everything work the way you describe here!
;)


Hope the BIOS helps,
Dave W.
