Description Sven Oehme 2008-02-03 21:57:56 EST
Description of problem:

i switched from radeonhd to the ati driver as this claims to support r500 models
now. the result is, the KDE login manager starts, i authenticate, he launchs KDE
and while doing it the screen gets blank. the system is still responsible, i can
kill the xserver with ctrl-alt-back ... 

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


How reproducible:

install the package 
delete old xorg.conf
restart X 

Actual results:

blank screen

Expected results:

a nice KDE desktop ..

Additional info:

i checked all the other open bugs on bugzilla, non explains/solves my Problem.
i disabled dri, i changed the AGP to 4, i user Option "DefaultConnectorTable"
"on" ... all without any change to the result
