Description Chris Runge 2001-01-30 09:25:24 EST
beta 3 (fisher)

When I startx the monitor goes into power save mode and the system must be
issued a hard reset.

I have the following setup:
- ATI Radeon VIVO 64
- SuperMicro 370DE6 motherboard, based on ServerWorks III HE-SL chipset
- 512 MB of RAM
- dual P3 1GHz processors

I think this may be related to problem 25297--there testing the Radeon
during a graphical
install also hung the system (but did not place the monitor into power-save
mode). After encountering that problem I did a fresh install but did not
test the video)--I did check the /etc/XF86Config-4 file before starting X
and it did look okay, however.

See also 25298 for a problem with Radeon during the text installer.

after rebooting I noticed that the agpgart and radeon modules weren't loaded...
loading them gives this error:

# modprobe agpgart

Looking through old bugs, saw that this one didn't get dealt with earlier.
Is this still a problem with Red Hat Linux 7.1?
