Description of problem:
I have an ATI Radeon VE card and it will not work in X. When I try to 
start X, it gives me a fatal IO Error 104. I talked to the Techs at RH and 
they said the ATI Rage Fury Pro would work. It does the same thing. 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  It tries to start X. It says "No Servers Found". and 
gives the Fatal IO Error 104.

Expected Results:  The RH GUI should start.

Whoever told you the Radeon VE is supported unfortunately was misinformed.
The Radeon VE support was just recently added to the mainstream XFree86
sources prior to the 4.1.0 release which was just a week or so ago.  As
such the Radeon VE is completely unsupported by Red Hat Linux 7.1.

I do have one of these cards however, and we do have XFree86 4.1.0 packages
in rawhide - however the rawhide packages are VERY RAW so if you try it out
do so expecting some problems at least for a month or so until the package

I also have a Radeon VE patch for 4.0.3 but it does not apply cleanly to the
source code so I haven't touched it yet.

If you do decide to try the 4.1.0 code in Rawhide I recommend waiting a week
or two to save yourself some headaches. Also, DRI *MUST* be disabled right
now as our kernel hasn't been updated to the new DRM code.

Sorry that that is all the help I can give you right now.  I believe that
the Rawhide XFree86 will be at least fairly stable in 1 month, unless you're
anxious and willing to deal with no DRI, messed up fonts, and misc other
little gotchas.

Fire me off an email in a couple weeks to see how things are progressing if
you like.
