Could we get also log from the failed attempt to run with "radeon" driver, please?
In a file xorg.conf has made a line "Driver" radeon "and has restarted a X-server. As a result we have the screen - a photo in a file photo.JPG

I'm experiencing a somewhat similar problem with my 9200 SE based card. It's documented under bug #471421 and seems to be related to using a DVI connector instead of a VGA connector.
Alex, are you using a VGA or DVI connector?
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:
Same problem here with radeon 3850 : blank screen with radeon driver.
I ve installed radeonhd and i used system-config-display (from command line) to set radeonhd as default driver.
radeohd works but it has many glitches.
Any attempt to bring back radeon driver failed...
to Martin A. Boegelund
I tried to use both VGA and DVI connectors - result bad
to Nikos Charonitakis
I tried to use the driver "radeonhd". Without result - the screen in general black. Probably the X-server cannot start.
The problem exists not only in Fedora 10RC1, but also in definitive release Fedora 10
Your card i think is not supported by radeonhd.
Also with ctrl-alt-f1 i see a report that "1 2 3 4 5 X server successfully started" or something similar.
So anaconda thinks that xserver is working but screen remains black...
This bug seems to still exist in F11-preview.

> This bug seems to still exist in F11-preview.
Could you please add /var/log/Xorg.0.log, /var/log/dmesg, and /etc/X11/xorg.conf from Rawhide?
I'm unable to produce any logs or config files for you - sorry. I simply can't switch to tty2 (or any tty for that matter) in order to grab logs and config file.
I produced an X.log file over at bug #471421, but that was for preview-10 - can you use that?
Ctrl-alt-F[2-7] doesn't take me to a terminal anymore, so I really don't know how I can fetch the files you request.
Please advice. Thank you.
