Description R P Herrold 2007-12-20 13:53:36 EST
Description of problem:

This was a previous bugzilla: 212654 which was closed by notting thus:

Comment #2 From Bill Nottingham  	 on 2006-11-22 14:24 EST  
That device is not supported by the currently available ATI driver, as there are
no publically available or usable specs for that card. You will need to use VESA
with that card.

Times seem to have changed, and an upstream at x.org driver project seems to exist:



As a upstream project exists, would it be possible on an RFE, to have this added
to retrieval and build in Fedora/RawHide?


where I was formerly getting 1400 x 1050 on a monitor with a different card (a
Matrox), I now only get 1280x1024  

This even aftrer adding a:

Modes    "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1280x800" "1152x864
" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Comment 1 R P Herrold 2007-12-20 14:05:00 EST
This seems to be in CVS, but not yet building for RawHide, according to my
mirror of it

Comment 2 Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2007-12-21 08:27:20 EST
I had the impression that my about-weekly radeonhd snapshots build fine, and are
in rawhide and F-8 updates-testing.


I'll check what the mirrors say about that.

Comment 3 Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2007-12-21 09:48:29 EST

My favourite mirror has


1.0.0-0.4.20071219git.fc8 is waiting for approval.

I interpret this as your using a stale mirror, and there being no bug.

Oh, and if an update from updates-testing works for you, I'd love to see a
positive comment on the update at


You can also test the xorg-x11-drv-ati package from F-8 updates-testing
(xorg-x11-drv-ati >= 6.7.196-4). It works for my X1400, but has a different set
of problems, so I am still using radeonhd :)
Comment 4 R P Herrold 2008-01-03 16:33:29 EST
Interesting  drilling down even further than that link is


which has a link to the latest and greatest SRPM

thanks -- will test and advise
Comment 5 R P Herrold 2008-01-03 17:33:32 EST
Sadly this does NOT get picked up and used, and I am still trapped at 1280x1024
pixels per xdpyinfo

attachment in a moment

I updated PCI sigs with the utility, and installed the latest driver built from
today's SRPM as noted above

Comment 7 Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2008-01-03 21:09:40 EST
Are you sure this bug is about rawhide? This looks more like RHEL5:

Current Operating System: Linux centos-5.first.lan 2.6.18-53.1.4.el5xen #1 SMP 
Fri Nov 30 01:21:23 EST 2007 x86_64
Build ID: xorg-x11-server 1.1.1-48.26.el5

Then when I scroll down a little, I find you are not using radeonhd at all:

(--) PCI:*(1:0:0) ATI Technologies Inc unknown chipset (0x7183) rev 0, Mem @
0xd0000000/28, 0xfe9e0000/16, I/O @ 0xdc00/8, BIOS @ 0xfea00000/17
(--) PCI: (1:0:1) ATI Technologies Inc unknown chipset (0x71a3) rev 0, Mem @
New driver is "ati"

IIRC, RHEL5 is based on something similar to FC6, which, unlike F-8, may have an
outdated/buggy xserver and xrandr. So... I'd love to find out

 a) how radeonhd works for you
    This requires an xorg.conf.
 b) how radeonhd works for you with Option "noRandR"
    This requires an xorg.conf.
 c) (if all of these fail)
    How radeon (from F-8 updates-testing or rawhide xorg-x11-drv-ati packages)
works for you.

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
