Using 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced
Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI
Rage Mobility M3 AGP 2x (rev 02) here. 11.4 works OK.
I installed HTTP started by Grub using latest
factory-snapshot with nomodeset on
cmdline. Graphical install worked fine, though slow with only 384M RAM, but resulting
X is unusable. The left half of the screen is fine, but the right side is a mess, as
if there were some kind of buffer misalignment repeating portions and omitting others.
Using nomodeset produces mostly black screens with colored lines in various places at
various times in attempting to start the login manager, and kills keyboard.
Anyone looked for a match to any of these upstream
R128 bugs? http://tinyurl.com/bz5lfmv
I've commented in the last bug in that list.
Exiting X makes the system unresponsive
to keyboard and mostly empties the screen to black.
Turns out 12.3 just needed the same thing 12.2 needed, but until now I forgot
to look. My laptop has an EDID problem, so needs HorizSync and VertRefresh
lines configured in xorg.conf or 50-monitor.conf as workaround. Latest log:

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
