Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 459561
ATI screen too big (outside view area) in rawhide
Last modified: 2008-11-24 06:36:17 EST
ATI Radeon 1650 driver is still not properly implemented. In F7-F8 the screen would open but be too large for the screen. On F9 the resolution of the startup screen was set so high that my PC interface could not keep up with the refresh rate. Occasionely I would get a black screen on install and a startup crash. The system would either hang on PC/HDTV or the font would be so small you could barely read it on a 20" monitor. With rawhide the font size is set extremely small, even smaller than before, but the refresh rate and the resolution is set properly for a typical install startup. However the GUI source screen is still too big to fit on the regular screen. This is the Sapphire/Radeon X1650 card. Since most people buy ATI cards to insure Linux compatibility it is extremely important the ATI drivers be recognized and translate effectively especially for the school market. UBUNTU, Freespire, and Suze, all implement the ATI drivers directly without error, replete with ATI icon. I would download the drivers myself from ATI but as noted in a separate report, I cannot connect my Raylink WIFI card to the internet!
Sorry to be such a nudge.
