I'm not sure that the attachments works well with the list so here is
the log.

You wanted 1600x1200? According to this log, this was the actual mode
that was set up :)

It seems we got our lines crossed here, as i am not sure anymore what
problem you were seeing in the first place then :)

He's getting the mode set up, but the display exhibits the "fuzzy
vertical stripes" problem that I originally had at 1600x1200. The only
resolution he can use and actually see what's going on is 1152x864. So
the card does set the framebuffer to 1600x1200, but all of the rendering
is scrambled on the screen.

savignien, can you take a screenshot with a digital camera or with a
cell phone of the problem? I think you're having the same problem I had,
but it is really hard to actually describe it. Also, try running the
rhd_conntest program, unless you've already done that.

Did he run fglrx before and didn't powercycle in between? Because that's
been culprit there so far.

We don't know yet what we need to do to fix this, but we can reproduce
it with fglrx so we will dig it out.

I don't know about him, but in my case I got an HP Compaq notebook 6715b
w/ FreeDOS on it. Never ran Windows and never ran the fglrx driver. I
rsync'd my old laptop's contents (FreeBSD system) over to the new one,
and built/installed the radeonhd driver, avivo driver, and the vesa
driver and played with the three of them until I got the radeonhd driver
to work (and the other two didn't). Perhaps the avivo driver messed with
screen setup to some extent, and I just happened to change testing order
randomly and the problem went away.
