Description of problem:
Cannot start desktop via gdm logon with xorg-x11-drv-ati
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot system
2. wait for gdm, never shows
no gdm, blank screen, monitor indicates no signal
Same (probably) failure with FC10 beta during first boot.
Last working ati driver was xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.8.0-21.fc10.i386.rpm
Have to use radeonhd driver to get gdm to function. Radeon hd 2600 graphics card on ASUS P5k-E wifi mobo.
With ati driver, can get to a tty, and startx shows xserver is running.
Attaching a screen shot from fc10 beta firstboot, may have some info.
I have a Biostar TA780G M2+ motherboard and I get similar results.
i don't get gdm but a blank screen and after about 20-30 seconds I see Fatal IO error 11 (Resource Temporary Unavailable) and the system shuts down.
I was using F10 beta (x84_64).
I'd actually bump this issue to "high" since this is a installation failure for most (?) ATI users.
