Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 175149
Does not configure ATI Radeon 200M properly
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:18 EST
Description of problem:
Just did a rawhide install. I have the following video card:
1:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M
5955 (PCIE) (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company: Unknown device 3085
Flags: bus master, fast Back2Back, 66Mhz, medium devsel, latency 66, IRQ 10
Memory at c0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
I/O ports at 9000 [size=256]
Memory at b0100000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
[virtual] Expansion ROM at b0120000 [disabled] [size=128K]
Capabilities:  Power Management version 2
Which is supported by the Xorg ATI driver, but the xorg.conf file written used
the vesa driver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I just tried a FC5 test 2 install, similar video card:
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RC410 [Radeon Xpress
Still does the vesa thing.
I tried the ati and radeon drivers - neither seems compatible. So maybe vesa
is the only appropriate choice.
This should be working in FC6 test3 and later. Please test with the new
release, and reopen this bug if it's still an issue for you.
