Description Josh Boyer 2007-12-02 19:25:19 UTC
Description of problem:

I upgraded to Rawhide today and X fails to display anything on the Thinkpad's LCD.

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

xorg-x11-drv-ati-195.fc9 

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rawhide on a z60m
2. try to boot
3. watch screen do nothing
  
Actual results:

No output

Expected results:

Login screen

Additional info:

This happens using system-config-display as well.  I should note that the
machine is using the latest F8 kernel, as the rawhide kernel fails to boot on
this laptop.

BTW, you have a broken upgrade path from F-8 for this driver.  I'm sure that
will be corrected shortly anyway though.

Comment 2 Josh Boyer 2007-12-04 03:12:48 UTC
Ok, so I finally got a working rawhide kernel and X starts now.  Odd.  I have no
idea why X would require a rawhide kernel to work.

kernel-2.6.24-0.66.rc3.git7.fc9 to be exact.

So, is this working for you?

Comment 4 Josh Boyer 2008-01-31 20:15:25 UTC
Yes.  The latest issue is the DRI being broken bug.
