ati driver refuses to touch Rage XL card
Last modified: 2012-04-17 15:52:35 EDT
Description of problem:
With a PCIe RV370 card and a PCI Rage XL card in my system, X refuses to touch
the Rage XL card when I tell it to use the "ati" or "atimisc" driver.
I spent a night debugging X under direction of Dave Airlie, hacking up the
xorg-x11-drv-ati from rawhide to make it load under RHEL5. It still would not
even touch the Rage XL card.
X -probeonly output only mentioned the RV370 card...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Xinerama setup with 2 monitors attached to the Radeon, one to the Rage XL
2. see X not touch the Rage XL card
I'll bring the Radeon card to the office for testing.
X tries to at least initialize the Rage XL. It isn't even being posted...
Note that with 'Driver "ati"' in xorg.conf, the atimisc sub module is not
That's cool, but I think it should be ASSIGNed to somebody (Rik, to you?, or ajax?)
Is this still an issue in RHEL6? I don't think we're likely to touch the mach64 support in RHEL5 at this point.
No further hardware enablement updates are planned for RHEL5's X stack. If
this issue still occurs with RHEL6, please fix the affected product version and
reopen this bug.
