Last modified: 2007-12-02 23:37:21 EST
Description of problem:
I installed the latest X ati driver and restarted the computer. GDM came up with
a configuration screen modal.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change repos from pointing to rawhide to pointing to F8 repositories
2. apply latest updates
3. Reboot computer after upgrade
On reboot, X will not start, gdm brings up modal reconfig prompt.
Since rawhide worked, I expected updates-testing to be less severe for a chance

Here is a VESA driver for comparison. ati submitted previously.

xorg.conf file where radeon changed to vesa to be able to launch
you are running an f8 driver against a rawhide server?
this won't work.
When F9 comes out, hopefully lower versions in F9 won't cause failures with
newer version numbering in F8.
