Description of problem:
When starting computer WITHOUT nomodeset, I get constantly (apparently crashing) Xorg server, so I don't get gdm login.
When looking at the Xorg.0.log I see the last lines:
(EE) RADEON(0): Memory manager initialization to (0,0) (1408,0) failed
Fatal server error:
AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.reboot computer with rhgb quiet
graphical startup and then crash
graphical startup and gdm login screen

OK, now I swear to *deity* that I have no xorg.conf ;-)

It works perfectly in the text mode -- where I get a huge number of columns/rows -- but when switching to X, it crashes.

the real and only /var/log/Xorg.0.log
So, after really getting rid of all xorg.conf lying around my system (that trap is unbelievable), I got this. Xorg starts with modesetting, but Gnome session is totally frozen and Xorg is in unstoppable state (no idea, what's going on there). So I had to switch back to nomodeset, where I have severely broken X as well. Oh well.

Might be a duplicate of bug 464853, if I understand the description of the issue there.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
There have been bunch of bug fixes
Could you retest with the latest kernel
( -132 at the time of this writing )
You can get the latest kernel build here
And with the latest xorg-x11-drv-ati.
( -60 at the time of this writing )
You can get the latest xorg-x11-drv-ati build here
And report back if it either improves or fixes this issue..
I think this could be closed -- not reproducible anymore and my computer is substantially different anyway.
