Description Pekka Savola 2008-06-13 20:47:02 UTC
Description of problem:
I have X1200 series radeonhd card which, so far, has worked fine.
After upgrading the driver from
xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd-1.2.1-1.1.20080429git.fc9.i386 to 
1.2.1-2.20080605git.fc9, when the X server is restarted, the screen gets messed
up in a strange way.  Because there are also strange messages in syslog, it is
probably not required to try to describe this further.  Downgrading the driver
version restores working behaviour.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd i386 1.2.1-2.20080605git.fc9

How reproducible:
1.2.1-2.20080605git.fc9

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade from 1.2.1-1.1.20080429git.fc9.i386 to 1.2.1-1.1.20080429git.fc9.i386
2. restart X server
3.
  
Additional info:
Attached is a diff of working vs non-working Xorg.0.log.

Comment 2 Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2008-06-13 21:38:44 UTC
I would guess that xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd-1.2.1-2.20080613git.fc9.i386 aka
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=52594 fixes this.

Could you please check that? Thanks a lot.

xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd-1.2.1-2.20080613git.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9

Comment 4 Pekka Savola 2008-06-14 05:15:59 UTC
Unfortunately, this doesn't help.  I've attached a new screenshot and a new xorg
log diff.  It appears that the fix in the package didn't work in this case
because there are still "Failed to set up write-combining range" messages.

Note: I'm not 100% sure if the diffs of xorg logs were correct because there was
some confusion about the VTYs but I hope so.

Note: I'll be on vacation for 1.5 weeks, unable to test new builds.

For anyone reading the log file diffs:

Comment 8 Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2008-06-14 11:16:40 UTC
Reported upstream as https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16347

I suggest we wait for feedback from upstream, and if that does not help, have
you do a git-bisect when you're back from vacations.

Comment 12 Pekka Savola 2008-06-24 12:33:43 UTC
The updates seem don't seem to have gone to updates or updates-testing, but from
koji, I tested xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd-1.2.1-3.2.20080622git.fc9.i386.rpm.

Unfortunately, it doesn't fix the problems for me, but instead of a garbled
screen, I get a completely white screen.  I'll attach an xorg.log diff  if it helps.

FYI: xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd-1.2.1-3.3.20080630git.fc9.i386 fixed this for me.

Most interesting diffs compared to git0622 seem to be (note that xorg version
had a minor update during this interval as well):

Works fine, the same as 0630 git version.  No significant changes in Xorg.log.

Comment 19 Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2008-07-13 19:00:51 UTC
Awesome. Thanks a lot.

We finally might have a serious candidate for a new stable package.
