MSI M635 Notebook and ATI X700 Graphic card problem
Last modified: 2018-04-11 05:44:21 EDT
Description of problem:
Screen has been black after graphical installation begun.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Boot FC5 on MSI M635 model notebook with ATI X700 Graphic Card.
Steps to Reproduce:
MSI M635 Notebook
AMD Turion64 MT-30 Processor
ATI X700 Graphic Card
FC5 X86_64 DVD
FC4 is fine to boot and start graphical installation screen.
Does booting with 'linux vesa' help? Does X work after installation is complete?
Yes, it's helped me, and finally installation has completed.
Now I'm trying to install fglrx64_6_8_0-8.23.7-1.x86_64.rpm.
Quick me too: I have the same on FC6T2 x86_64 with an Acer 4005WMLi which has an
ATI X700 PCIE card. During install /tmp/X.log shows that X is using the external
CRTC1 port instead of the internal LVDS one.

Sorry forgot to add. Once FC6T2 was installed in text modus I had to add:
Option "MonitorLayout" "LVDS,NONE" in the videocard0 device section in
/etc/xorg.conf to get X going.
Reporter, could you confirm please, that this bug still could be reproduced with
the latest release of Fedora (FC6)?
Yes, I tried once to install fc6 x86_64, it's failed again.
I can even confirm that this still happens with F7 test 3 (i386). I have
attached the X.log. Hope that helps.
