Description Tethys 2006-03-06 13:08:33 EST
Description of problem:
My Radeon X800 GTO isn't detected, and so X falls back
to using the vesa driver. That in turn results in lower
(unusably so) refresh rates for higher resolutions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start system-config-dispay
2. note how the generated xorg.conf uses "Driver vesa" in the Device section

Additional info:
Hand editing the config file to force it to use the radeon driver works
up to a point, but only if I tell it to pretend it's a Radeo X800 XT instead
(by using ChipID 0x5d57). If I use the real ChipID value, it says it doesn't
know about my card.
