xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.8.0-4 breaks X with a Radeon X800SE
Last modified: 2018-04-11 03:01:28 EDT
Description of problem: after upgrading to xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.8.0-4 the "radeon"
driver crashes when X starts with a Radeon X800SE (R423) UK (PCIE)
Downgrading to xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.7.196-1 (the only other version I still had by
chance on a disk) fixes the problem.
Let me know which outputs would be useful for debugging. It would also be
helpful to know where one can find older updates (that is updates which are not
the latest ones, in case the latest update of a package badly breaks a machine
and one is forced to downgrade that package)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade to the latest xorg-x11-drv-ati for fc8
2. try to start X
3. ... no hope, a driver traceback is written on the log file and X refuses to
start whatever I do
Actual results: X crashes
Expected results: X should work (it worked for previous versions, with the
radeon driver including hardware acceleration)
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
