Description Duncan Innes 2006-09-26 08:48:09 EDT
Description of problem:  When installed from scratch, an Acer Aspire 5020 laptop
with an ATI Mobility Radeon X700 PCI-Express graphics card shows no output to
the laptop screen.

Don't know if this is reported against the right XOrg component - sorry.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Not sure which
component to report the version of.

How reproducible: Every install

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install from scratch
2. Boot up laptop
Actual results: Blank screen

Expected results: X should work on LCD screen

Additional info: Have found that the display is actually going to the external
montior for the laptop.  Using this, I am able to change the detected driver
(radeon) to the fglrx (vendor supplied driver for fglrx cards) driver and the
laptop LCD will begin working.

The bug was happening with an x86_64 install as well as with an i386 install. 
Yum updates were done on both installs, but issue was happening before and after
the yum updates.

Please attach /var/log/Xorg.0.log from a blank-screen startup.

also, rpm -q xorg-x11-drv-ati.

The screen will render properly on an externally attached screen.
Comment 4 Duncan Innes 2006-10-03 09:26:20 EDT
These 3 bug updates are done from a fresh install of FC6T3


The laptop user is reporting that the latest yum update has resolved the
problem.  I will verify if this is the case and update the bug as appropriate.

Comment 5 Adam Jackson 2006-10-03 12:14:30 EDT
Yeah, I expect this was fixed in 6.6.2-4.  If you can verify that I'd appreciate it.
Comment 6 Duncan Innes 2006-10-04 14:10:14 EDT

User has done fresh install to have blank screen.

yum update provided new xorg-x11-drv-ati package

Screen now works a treat.



P.S.  Hope I resolve this bug properly - I don't normally close my own bugs.
