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"
This seems to be in CVS, but not yet building for RawHide, according to my
mirror of it
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.
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 :)
Interesting drilling down even further than that link is
which has a link to the latest and greatest SRPM
thanks -- will test and advise
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

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outdated/buggy xserver and xrandr.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.
