Description Oskari Saarenmaa 2008-05-07 04:49:20 EDT
Description of problem:
Upgrading from F8 to F9 preview causes hard freeze on my iMac when Xorg starts
with the radeonhd driver which worked fine on F8.  On F8 the "radeon" driver
wouldn't work at all, but on F9 preview switching to it fixed the problem.

Also upgrading radeonhd driver from 1.1.0 to current git (version 1.2.1) fixed
the problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start X
Actual results:
X11 cursor is drawn and the system locks up and can't be accessed from console
or network anymore.

Expected results:
X starts normally.

I believe this might be fixed in xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd-1.2.1-1.1.20080429git.fc9
which is waiting to get into the updates.

Download it from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=47632 in
the mean time.
