Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 477249
R300 won't boot with "nomodeset"
Last modified: 2009-01-15 04:26:25 EST
Description of problem:
The latest drv-ati update causes Xorg to stall on AGP R300 with "nomodeset" kernel option.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-188.8.131.52-134.fc10 + xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.9.0-61 works
kernel-184.108.40.206-134.fc10 + xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.9.0-62 totally locks the system
Steps to reproduce:
Upgrade drv-ati from -61 to -62 and then logout. You'll get a screwed up screen (sort of not aligned, moved and distorted desktop screen), the mouse still moving for 1 or 2 second and then also the mouse cursor locks.
Without the option "nomodeset" you don't get this problem.
Hardware: Radeon 9500 AGP
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if you have one) whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
Just tested with the updates and it works again. The bug is fixed.
Thanks for letting us know.
