Summary: Problems with Dell RV516 ATI Radeon X1300 Pro
Product: xorg
Version: unspecified
Platform: Other
OS/Version: All
Status: NEW
Severity: normal
Priority: medium
Component: Driver/radeonhd
AssignedTo: lverhaegen@xxxxxxx
ReportedBy: mads@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: xorg-team@xxxxxxxxxxx


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
1680x1050 display.

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).
