ati All-in Wonder pro video card w/8Mb
Mike: can we reproduce this ?
All-in-wonder pro or All-in-wonder pro 128 ?
Can you attach the log file X creates on startup (/var/log/XFree86.0.log) and
lspci -vv output.
I can't reproduce it. I need the info Alan requested though..
Also the XF86Config-4 file. Please attach them using the link below.
I have an AIW r128 pro. I'm guessing the non 128 pro card is Mach 64 based.
If so, it should be configured with:
Xconfigurator --preferxf4 --nodri
Can you please supply the requested info uisng the link below? Thanks.
I was trying on an All in Wonder 128 Pro.. I just looked through the pile
of ATI boxes here and found an AIW Pro 8Mb PCI. Is the card you have PCI
Created attachment 20076 [details]
Requested config file
Created attachment 20077 [details]
requested lspci output
the card is an AGP
After attaching the requested files I ran Xconfigurator --preferfx4 --nodri as
indicated that the AIW Mach64 based card should be configured with. The after
reconfiguration results match remain unchanged.
Additional to description:
If I don't modprobe then either the screen goes blank.... or the system kicks
me back to the log on screen. When this happens the screen first blinks a few
times very similar to when Xconfigurator tests your settings.
I've backed my system off to RH 7.0 in June. Is there any new status on this
Is this issue corrected in RH 7.2 Please advise
Problem seems to be fixed when using Red Hat Linux 7.2 plus XFree86 4.2.0
and other dependant packages from rawhide, as I can't seem to reproduce it.
If you can still reproduce it with the new distro and rawhide updates,
please reopen the bug report, and attach new relevant details, and
