Description jorilx 2007-03-08 12:15:58 EST
Description of problem:
Starting with FC6 I can't get Xorg to detect my video card, which used to work
with FC4 and FC5. The card is an on-board ATI Radeon 7000/VE on a IBM xSeries
206, and by "detect" I mean it's not listed in the PCI scan of Xorg.0.log.

The actual error in the log is:
>(II) Primary Device is: ISA
>(II) ATI:  Candidate "Device" section "Videocard0".
>(EE) No devices detected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I tried every FC6 kernel and every Xorg update.


Additional info:
I'm using the "ati" driver. The "fbdev" one works though.
I tried with an external video card (PCI ATI RageXL) but it's not detected either.
Comment 1 jorilx 2007-03-08 12:17:57 EST
Forgot to mention: with Knoppix 5.1 and Ubuntu 6.10 (liveCDs, Xorg 7.1.1 on
both, kernel 2.6.19 on the first and 2.6.17 on the second) everything is ok.
Comment 2 Adam Jackson 2007-03-12 15:43:37 EDT
Yeah, kernel bug.  Should be fixed in kernel-2.6.20-1.2984.fc7 and later.
Comment 3 jorilx 2007-03-15 09:38:42 EDT
I see, thanks!
I'm sorry, any chance it will be fixed in FC6 also? Should I try building from
source?
Comment 4 jorilx 2007-03-19 06:06:34 EDT
Just checked 2.6.20-1.2925.fc6 and it works, thanks!
