Description Robert Margossian 2006-04-03 16:13:21 EDT
Description of problem:
I have seen similar issues posted here, but not entirely the same. I can only
uset the on-board Intel card. I can use the PCI Radeon card in text mode only. I
am getting a "clock" error trying to start either card with the radeon driver. X

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
100 %

Steps to Reproduce:
1.edit xorg.cong, add screen, monitor, device with radeon drive on correct pci
bus id
Actual results:
X crashes

Expected results:

with fc4 and same configuration (xorg.conf) x started on 3 heads without incident
Additional info:

Have to restart with 3 head xorg to get the actual log. Will resatrt, attach the
log, and the xorg.conf

I have done the same upgrade at my offie, using 3 heads, using two nvidia pci
cards, copying the fc4 xorg.conf to the new fc5 install, and it works without

FYI....After reading many of the other bugs related to radeon driver as reported
here, I also tried with "dri", but still get the same error as lisetd in the
attached log for X. I ave chased this bug since fc5 was released this past
month, but am convinced it is related to the new radeon driver. Please advise
