can you give the 6.7.191-2 rpm a spin? http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=16342 it'll be in rawhide soon..
Comment 3 Tim Mayberry 2007-08-26 23:11:18 EDT
I updated my i386 rawhide box and also experience this with a Radeon 9200 PRO[RV280]. The 6.7.191-1 and 6.7.191-2(mentioned above) rpm's but both exhibit the same behaviour. reverting to xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.6.3-4.fc8.i386.rpm returns the output to normal for me aswell.
Comment 4 Dave Airlie 2007-08-27 00:51:13 EDT
to the initial reported can you add a Virtual line to your xorg.conf to test? example below it you can use 192 Section "Screen" Identifier "Screen0" Device "Videocard0" DefaultDepth 24 SubSection "Display" Virtual 1920 1200 Viewport 0 0 Depth 24 EndSubSection EndSection
Comment 5 Stefan Ekman 2007-08-28 16:02:43 EDT
Tested 6.7.191-2 rpm and above settings. No difference.
Comment 6 Stefan Ekman 2007-09-03 10:42:55 EDT
Same with xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.7.192-1.fc8.i386.rpm
Comment 7 Tim Mayberry 2007-09-19 23:16:39 EDT
I thought I'd add that I built and installed the upstream version of the ati driver that has been tagged as xf86-video-ati-6.7.193 and it reduced the overly white/brightness of the output somewhat, but it still seems slightly too white/bright compared to the output if I use org-x11-drv-ati-6.6.3-4.fc8.i386.rpm
Comment 8 Stefan Ekman 2007-09-23 04:43:41 EDT
Tried xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.7.193-1.fc8 Slightly darker clouded screen, but still no picture.
Comment 9 Dave Airlie 2007-09-25 19:21:13 EDT
Stefan can you post a log with the added virtual line? it appears we are attempting to use the scaler when we shouldn't .. also giving 6.7.194 a try from Rawhide... Tim I think you have a different problem it's a different chipset so please file your own bug... with Xorg.0.log ..
Comment 10 Stefan Ekman 2007-10-09 03:15:57 EDT
Sorry, can't do that, as I am trying another distro now. So I am no longer a Fedora user.
Comment 11 Matěj Cepl 2007-10-09 11:49:26 EDT
Sorry to hear it. Reopen this bug when you return ;-)
