Description Jim Meyering 2007-09-27 13:50:36 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Using this card, Radeon HD 2400PRO (Asus EAH2400PRO/HTP/256M), the F8T2 ISO,
just installed, and boot with "xdriver=vesa"

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
(DVI mode: screen blanks and Dell FP2001 says something like "cannot display
this mode")  When I tried it with VGA cable, I got decent images, but it was
offset to the right by about 1/2 the screen, so I couldn't complete installation
(with the "Next" button in lower right being off the screen -- and couldn't
adjust horiz. to compensate for that)

I get this in lspci output:
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Unknown device 94c3

Expected results:

Thanks!  rawhide now works for me using xorg-x11-drv-ati.x86_64
6.7.196-7.fc9, but only up to 1280x960 resolution DVI on my Dell 2001FP.
That monitor does 1600x1200 just fine with the closed-source nvidia driver,
and I'm motivated to make it work with an open source one.  Problems with
this monitor are not new, e.g., (patch for RV280 here)
so I'm optimistic.  Any hints?

With the attached conf, all I get on the monitor is this:

  Can not display this mode

I've attached new Xorg log as comment #3, above.

Here's the xorg.conf mentioned in #4 above.
Comment 6 Dave Airlie 2008-03-26 19:32:56 EDT
does this still happen? the patch provided is a dirty hack but I'd like to try
and fix this correctly.
Comment 7 Jim Meyering 2008-03-28 05:40:57 EDT
Glad to hear you're interested!  I've just confirmed that it still happens, with
Comment 8 Dave Airlie 2008-03-30 19:58:41 EDT
oh I'm not talking about radeonhd, please try with -ati driver..

Comment 9 Jim Meyering 2008-03-31 04:03:49 EDT
The -ati driver gives the same result.

Comment 11 Jim Meyering 2008-04-02 14:31:43 EDT
Hi Dave,
Tried again, this time with xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.8.0-8.fc9.x86_64.
Same result :-(

new log, now w/Option "ModeDebug" "true"

Hi again,

At ajax's suggestion, I've retried with the latest from rawhide, and with
Option "ModeDebug" "true"
added to the Monitor section.  New log file below.

retried with same config as above

Hi, since I've seen new drivers come in to rawhide, I've retried.
Unfortunately, I still get black screen with the usual "can not display this
mode" message from the monitor.
Comment 14 Jim Meyering 2008-07-03 04:37:50 EDT
With the following config (from Dave Airlie), everything works fine using
today's rawhide.

Thanks again, Dave!
