Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439625
fails to start X on radeon X1900XT (R580)

see attached log. This worked (with vesa iirc) on F8.
Created attachment 299592 [details]
try with radeon driver, but yes vesa should possibly work if it worked before.
I booted the installer with xdriver=radeon, this got me an X display. I tried
to confirm what was going on by flipping to tty2 to check the X log, and the
whole screen turned white. I hit alt-f6 to go back to X/anaconda, and the CRT
went into power saving!
So, works, but with busted ttys. This is getting to be a theme.
(See 439927 for another tty bug, but on a different kind of radeon)
Close this one, and use the other bug for 'tty switching is busted on several
(all?) radeons' ?
(though we should probably find out why radeon isn't automatically being
selected before closing this out)
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
