Re: [radeonhd] No X and Unknown card detected - PowerColor X1950 Pro AGP

Ok done, tested as before all possible connectors combinations and started X this time. DVI-I 1 works (using it right now), DVI-I 1 and 2 with VGA adapter also works, that lives just DVI-I 2 with DVI connector not working because of that TMSA on LVTMA thing.

Now that I have radeonhd working I noticed some differences in the way fonts are being rendered compared to the vesa driver or fglrx. Is this normal / expected? For example, using Ubuntu Gutsy (7.10) at gdm login screen the font of the username text field appear bold (fatter and darker). And the anti alias doesn't seam as good as before. Anyway I'll stay with this driver for now. Let me know if you need any more logs, tests, etc.

Thank you very much for all the output!
You tried all different combos of monitors/connectors, weren't you
able to get X to start on any of them?
Your problem seems to be releated to using the DVI-I 2 connector
which seems to use the LVTMA:

(--) RADEONHD(0): Attaching Output DAC A to Connector DVI-I CRT1 DFP3
(EE) RADEONHD(0): RHDLVTMAInit: unhandled connector type: 2
(--) RADEONHD(0): Attaching Output DAC B to Connector SVIDEO TV1
(--) RADEONHD(0): Attaching Output TMDS A to Connector DVI-I DFP1 CRT2
(--) RADEONHD(0): Attaching Output DAC B to Connector DVI-I DFP1 CRT2

However TMSA on LVTMA isn't supported ATM. Luc is working on that.
In the mean time connecting the digital input of your monitor to
the other DVI-I connector (or using VGA) should help.
