Description of problem:
After updating to 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5 I am noticing some issues with my ATI 9800
Horizontal red lines upper the screen.
Frezze later in the login user.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The system: 2.6.15-1.2054_fc5 load good.
Sorry my english is poor. Tanks
Don't find solution for this in Bugzilla!!!
reassigning to the X guys, but if it started happening when you upgraded the
kernel, then it might be a kernel problem, yea?
so you see. it seems rare to me that it can load version 2.6.15-1.2054_fc5
without problems. and that version 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5 is hung just when it
appears screen login.
Does this problem occur at all in FC6 or FC7t2 ?
I solve it... the problem is the ati drivers and kernel.
Install FC 6
Select Vesa drivers for working normaly
Download and install ati driver: www.ati.com
Modify the xorg.org
Put this code:

Tanks for you help.
Fedora Core is great S.O. Long life Linux :D
No, that's not correct. We cannot do binary-only proprietary drivers here (which
is what you installed). Reporter, are you willing to help us with testing of the
open-source driver? If not, I will have to close this bug as CANTFIX but
otherwise this has not resolved yet.
If you would like to help, please attach your X server config file (using open
source drivers) /etc/X11/xorg.conf and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log)
to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla
file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
Mass closure: This bug has been in NEEDINFO for over six weeks with no
additional information provided, and is therefore being closed. If this bug is
still an issue for you, please supply the requested information, and reopen the bug.
