Description of problem:
Unable to use a graphical screen.
The F7T4 graphic installer hangs with a blue screen; the installation is only possible with the text interface.
lspci returns: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M56GL [Mobility FireGL V5250]
When using 'Driver "ati"' in xorg.conf startx terminates with "(EE) No devices detected".
When using 'Driver "vesa"' in xorg.conf startx terminates with "AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI capable"
The system is an IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad T60p.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 7 Test 4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. during installation of F7T4 for x86_64
> When using 'Driver "vesa"' in xorg.conf startx terminates with "AIGLX: Screen
0 is not DRI capable"
That message isn't fatal. Please attach the /var/log/Xorg.0.log from the failed
Created attachment 154183 [details]
The log file as requested.
That appears to be a successful startup, and the ati driver definitely doesn't
support R500 cards so it's not expected to work.
Presumably your X session is dying for some other reason?
There have been no updates to this bug in over a month. Your X session appears
to be dying sometime after X is started. You can verify this by running
from runlevel 3 and verifying that the X server stays up on its own. (Press
Control-Alt-Backspace to terminate it.) If this is still an issue for you, you
will need to track down where in the X startup process the session is failing
before we can work this bug any further.
