Radeon driver: Option "AGPFastWrite" "1" in xorg.conf causes a system hang
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:17 EST
Description of problem:
When using the radeon driver,
Option "AGPFastWrite" "1" in xorg.conf causes a system hang.
Now, Xorg.log explicitly warns against this option. However, the problem is
that it caused no harm in the driver shipped with F7.
So people might suddenly end up with a non-working system.
(Fixing it can be a bit tricky if xdm/kdm is used. You can do it by booting
from another device, mounting the f8 partition, and removing xorg.conf).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ATI9600 FireGL card
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

xorg.conf which leads to hang
It runs fine when xorg.conf is absent.
I am sorry, but I don'Å§ understand why I should not close it as NOTABUG -- you
do something against which you are explicitly warned not to do, and when you
remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf entirely it works. Closing as NOTABUG, but if you have
any reason for me, why I should reopen, go ahead and make a comment to this bug.
