Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 450059
Can't start X with two (one PCI-E and one PCI) radeon cards
Last modified: 2009-06-10 10:54:15 EDT
Description of problem:
If I boot the F9 live CD, I get a regular boot followed by a flicker-y login
prompt but no X.
My smolt profile:
My xorg.conf (works -- well, as two separate screens -- in F8):
When I this xorg.conf I get one screen lit up with the text "P/N
113-PCcc2502-17E" and nothing on the other screen. Not surprisingly, xrandr -q
says "no display" (or whatever it says when X isn't started).
Bug #441161 is potentially related (I can no longer start X after the kernel
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 current 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.
sorry, dual-head -- don't bother with running without /etc/X11/xorg.conf
So I think I've attached all relevant info, no? Well, I've already attached the
log files to other bugs and put links here so as to not duplicate the attachments :)
Sorry I didn't recognized first that bug 441161 is yours. Therefore, we have
/var/log/Xorg.0.log in the attachment 308405 [details]
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '9'.
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 9'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 9 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:
I no longer have this hardware setup so I can't reproduce.
