Description of problem:
My graphic card, a Gigabyte GV-R96128D (based on Radeon 9600 chip) is
not recognized by the system, neither during installation process, nor
when using the 'display' menu.
I have tried to select the 9600 driver manuely, but it is reset to
'generic VESA driver' when rebooting.
Selecting the 'ati radeon generic' doesn't make a better result.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the 'display' settings.
2.Select the radeon 9600 driver
Actual Results: The generic vesa driver is still used.
Expected Results: The radeon 9600 driver shoud be loaded.
Motherboard : KG7 (north bridge : AMD761)
Fixed in rawhide hwdata for many ATI radeon hardware. If yours
still doesn't work with rawhide hwdata, reopen bug and attach
output of "lspci -vvn".
Setting status to "RAWHIDE"
