Same problem found with a Radeon 9000 Pro cards and Philips 104B 
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-10 10:54:38 EST
Are either or both of these displays flat panels, or are they CRTs?

All Radeon hardware that I have here looks exactly the same on my
monitors, with no difference of brightness.  I suspect the problem
is hardware specific to hardware I do not have any physical access
to, so I'm not sure what if anything I can do.

I recommend reporting the problem upstream to http://bugs.xfree86.org
also, with full details, and attaching your X config file, log file,
and the exact brand make/model of video card.  It's possible that
the cards having problems are not "Built by ATI" cards or something,
and that might be why I can not reproduce this, as all my hardware
is real built by ATI hardware.

If you do report this upstream as well, please put the bug report
URL here for me to track also.

Comment 3 Barry 2004-01-10 12:24:07 EST
Oops, monitor is actually a Philips 109B4 (CRT screen) and the
graphics card is a Gigabyte Maya Radeon 9000 Pro.
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-10 13:01:14 EST
Ok, I suspect that the different brand of video card might be
related.  I do not have access to that brand/model of Radeon, so
you might want to also report this to XFree86.org as per my suggestion
in comment #2 above, as that will make more eyes see the problem,
and perhaps someone else can reproduce it.  Please update this report
with your upstream bug URL.

In the mean time, I'll keep my eyes peeled on CVS commits for any
updates that seem relevant.

Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2004-02-23 15:07:11 EST
Oops, I set this to 'DEFERRED' by accident.  Got 2 bug reports
mixed up.

I believe this bug is a duplicate of bug #112073 which I just
fixed in the latest rawhide builds.

Raffaele, could you please test the latest rawhide XFree86 build
4.3.0-59, and indicate if this problem is resolved now or still
Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2004-07-05 18:57:06 EDT
Closing as "CURRENTRELEASE - problem resolved in Fedora Core 2
with X.Org X11 6.7.0, by patch integrated from Hui Yu at ATI which
resolves an ASIC specific issue present in 9200 variants and
a few other chips.
