Description of Problem: r128 mobility problems : 1) r128 mobility card does not work in 24 bit mode on anything other than native resolutions (1400x1050 on dell5000e) 2) At 16/8 bit mode exitting X at any resolution other than native causes system to hang and need a hardreboot These seems to be reproduced here : http://ibgwww.colorado.edu/~lessem/5000e/ 3) DPMS seems to hang system on a resume after suspending. How Reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set resolution to 800x600 2. start X 3. exit X Actual Results: Freeze Expected Results: No Freeze Additional Information:

I'm assuming that you accidentally chose Red Hat Linux 4.2.. because it is no longer supported. If you are in fact using Red Hat Linux 4.2. Please upgrade to Red Hat Linux 7.1 for the best support. If it isn't 4.2, please update the bug report to indicate the proper release. Also attach your X logs, and configuration files using the link below. What version of XFree86 are you using?
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2001-05-24 04:54:28 UTC
Closing bug because of lack of response, assuming the bug report is filed against 4.2 as specified - which is unsupported. I don't believe r128 is supported in 4.2 either.

Hi apologies for getting taking so long to get back to you.. I've had various amounts of success upgrading a few components. Issue (2) The crash on exitting out of X at lower resolutions has been resolved w/ your latest beta (from 14 on at least). One more issue that I forgot to mention is actually fixed with the latest stable DRI from sourceforge. W/ a whole slew of the ati cards (perfect* ati mobility 128 ), there is a "flickering" issue that can only be resolved by either turning DRI off or toggling UseCCEfor2D. Upgrading DRI to 0.7 seemed to fix this problem. Issue (1) still doesn't work, but this is apparantly a current limitation of X/r128 and may be fixed sometime in the future.

I believe this issue to be resolved now in Red Hat Linux 7.2 with XFree86 4.1.0-3. Could you confirm if the new X fixes this for you?
