This did not show in the previous version of the driver.

Comment 2 Matthias Runge 2008-12-11 19:45:35 UTC
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M22 [Mobility Radeon X300] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
	Subsystem: IBM Device 056e
	Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16
	Memory at c0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=128M]
	I/O ports at 2000 [size=256]
	Memory at b0100000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
	[virtual] Expansion ROM at b0120000 [disabled] [size=128K]
	Capabilities: <access denied>
	Kernel modules: radeon, radeonfb

Memory size is not correct in Xorg.log (reports 64 M), lspci-output is correct

duplicate of bug no 466369?

Comment 7 Gordon Messmer 2008-12-16 19:42:55 UTC
Perhaps a duplicate of bug 475555.  I also got general glitches using -61, but not the previous version or -62 from koji.
