Summary: Problems with Dell RV516 ATI Radeon X1300 Pro
This is a follow-up to my comments on #12843. I created this "bug" to track the
problems and progress I have.
Using xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd-0.0.2-0.14.20071031git.fc9 on F8 as suggested by
Hans Ulrich Niedermann
Dell with RV516 ATI Radeon X1300 Pro, splitter cable, and a DELL E228WFP
With radeonhd driver I can startx and get a picture, apparently 1680x1050, and
with a bit flickering. Changing the resolution with ctrl-alt-plus/minus leads
to more flickering and non-working resolutions.
BUT when I try to start a greeter the screen starts flashing. I have seen the
greeter for up to 1 second, but right now it is only shown in short flashes.
But when i ctrl-alt-backspace the flashing greeter I'm shown a non-flashing
crash warning. So this is how far it works for me...
I will attach the Xorg.0.log's for these cases.
With the monitor connected to the wrong port I get the message "Failed to
detect a connected monitor" followed by "Screen(s) found, but none have a
usable configuration.". That confuses me - I would assume that screen and
monitor is the same in this context?
The message "RADEONHD: No matching Device section for instance (BusID
PCI:1:0:1) found" is shown when starting X. I assume that 1:0:1 is what
conntest calls 1:0.1? Shouldn't that be ignored by the driver?
I would start using and testing the radeonhd driver if it was as "good" as the
vesa driver but at the full resolution (vesa can be used at 1280x1024 only).
