I'm posting this here on the off chance someone else has encountered it. I
can't find the appropriate forum on X.org, the suse-laptop list is German
only, and my post to suse-linux-e hasn't given me an answer.
Installation of SuSE 10.0 on my new HP Pavilian xv6000 went incredibly well,
the easiest laptop install I've ever done. I'm left with one problem,
hopefully not a show stopper. Card is ATI Radeon XPRESS 2000m 5955
The widescreen 1280x800 works great while the window managers are running, but
X won't exit properly. Regardless of whether I exit to gdm or console, the
screen turns into a gray color, sometimes tinted with various colors, plus
some horizontal and vertical lines. At this point the screen will not
recover. Pressing <alt>F2 -F9 while X is running causes the screen to do the
same thing. The problem occurs with KDE, GNOME, and FVWM2. It's not a total
lock, as the three finger salute properly reboots the computer after an
Skipping all window managers, i.e., simply typing "/usr/bin/X11/X" at the
command line in runlevel 3, then pulling the rug out
wiith <crtl><alt><backspace> gives a normal exit to a good console.
Is there something I can put in .xinit or somewhere that will fix this?
The intelligence of any discussion diminishes with the square of the
number of participants.
