actual xorg.conf
Comment 2 Steve 2008-05-20 04:57:03 EDT
Sorry for wrong information! The Card is "ATI Radeon X1650 256".
Comment 3 Steve 2008-05-20 05:44:03 EDT
I installed the radeonhd driver and it is working now. But why did anaconda
wrote "radeon" in the xorg.conf when the card is not supported? It he not supported?
Comment 4 Dave Airlie 2008-05-20 19:52:35 EDT
it should be supported can you switch back to radeon and attached a
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from it?

it might also be better to just remove xorg.conf and see what happens.
Comment 5 Steve 2008-05-21 03:27:31 EDT
I switched back to radeon --> Xorg.0.log.

After removing xorg.conf, the screen goes also black and no more xorg.conf will
be created.

another monitor now. can someone else confirm that?
