Re: [opensuse] incorrect xorg setup in openSUSE 12.1
Karl, Felix:

did you install the packages with the ATI driver?

Which driver do you mean?
I have this one:
~> rpm -qa|grep -i radeon

As I know correctly Radeon 7000 aka Radeon-VE is a legacy card.
Xorg/linux/SuSE/openSUSE has the radeon driver for this card for ages.

Obiously openSUSE 12.1 can not automatically configure X correctly,
while in 11.2 the correct configuration could be done easily.

You might have a cable or radeon 7000 connector problem interfering. Or maybe
your display's preferred mode and available modes are out of sync with your
understanding or wishes. Is it a CRT?

I haven't emphasized but oS 11.2 and 12.1 installations are on the same
computer on two different partitions. If it were cable problem, it should
affect 11.2 as well. 11.2 works correctly, only 12.1 has this problem.

My monitor is (from the xorg.conf file generated by 11.2 sax):

Section "Monitor"
DisplaySize 408 306
HorizSync 29-83
Identifier "Monitor[0]"
ModelName "BELINEA 2080S1"
Option "DPMS"
Option "PreferredMode" "1600x1200"
VendorName "MAX"
VertRefresh 43-85
UseModes "Modes[0]"

It's an LCD monitor.

Next I copied the xorg.conf file from 11.2 to 12.1 but this did not
make any change on resolution, it is still 1280x960.
Now I am stucked, what should be the next step to correct this?

1-Remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf
2-match the content of the following files:


I copied the above files to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, removed
/etc/X11/xorg.conf. Restarted X (init3, init5).
It did not make any change.
Then I uncommented
#Driver "radeon"
#Option "monitor-DVI-0" "Default Monitor"
lines in 50-device.conf, but it did not make any difference either.

What is annoying that the setup worked out-of-box in openSUSE 11.2,
while nor autoconfiguration neither the xorg.conf file copied from working
11.2 works in 12.1.

Might it be that radeon driver is not loaded?
lsmod |grep -i radeon gives nothing.
(But is gives nothing in 11.2 too.)
