Description Alan Olsen 2004-05-27 01:12:34 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
When starting X with an ATI Radeon 7000 card, if the dri module is
enabled, the screen will come up blank and X will hang.

If I disable the dri module, X will come up fine.

The commercial driver from ATI will not function with the 7000 and I
would like to get hardware acceleration working.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.5-1.358 xorg-x11-6.7.0-2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. startx with dri enabled.
2. system screen goes blank and system hangs

Actual Results:  I hard reboot the system.

Expected Results:  X should have come up with hardware acceleration.

When /etc/X11/XF86Config has the line: Load "dri", and X starts, it
seems to work with kernel-2.6.5-1.358/xorg-x11-6.7.0-2 without issue
on my system - upgraded FC1->FC2 running for just under a month
without issue.

The issue appears to be a problem with the SiS AGP chipset and not the
Radeon itself.  The SiS741GX does not work with Linux (yet).  Instead
of checking version and exiting nicely, it just goes out to lunch.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2004-07-06 01:00:59 EDT
That would be a kernel side issue...  reassigning to kernel component
for sis chipset issue...
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2004-11-02 22:46:45 EST
is this still repeatable with current kernel / xorg ?

if so, can you paste the output of dmesg please ?
