Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-04-01 09:44:43 EDT
I reproduced this on my system as well. 
Comment 2 Stefan Becker 2009-04-01 09:53:33 EDT
Sorry, forgot to mention: connected to Samsung DLP TV with HDMI. It's a VDR, so there is no other monitor :-)
Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-04-01 10:03:32 EDT
Mine is on a Philips 170S LCD, connected via VGA.

Comment 5 Remy Maucherat 2009-04-01 12:11:03 EDT
It also hangs on RV730 and RV770 when doing the modesetting, but did Dave post anywhere KMS was functional on R600+ ? Personally, I don't think so.
Comment 6 Michael Madore 2009-04-01 17:43:11 EDT
According to the basic test case instructions:

If you have an r600 or r700 chipset card (Radeon HD 2xxx, HD 3xxx or HD 4xxx),
add radeon.modeset=1 as a kernel parameter: in the live CD, hit any key when
the 'automatic boot in X seconds' prompt appears, then hit tab to edit boot

I tried this with the live CD and the kernel complained that it didn't
understand the radeon.modeset option.  The screen then went blank and I
eventually rebooted the system.  If I don't provide the radeon.modeset option,
then it will boot up in text mode and then start X successfully. I will test it
with a rawhide install next.

ATI 3650 shows a blankscreen when radeon.modeset=1 is used, without this everything is fine.

Also have a blank screen when radeon.modeset=1 is used. 

lspci -nn:

01:05.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: ATI Technologies Inc RS780M/RS780MN [Radeon HD 3200 Graphics] [1002:9612]
Comment 13 François Cami 2009-04-02 15:42:36 EDT
Thanks for the logs and information, switching severity
to high because of crash, keeping priority low because
we have a workaround.

Switching to ASSIGNED.

dmesg.log from radeon crash on HD3200

You probably have this information already, but I thought I add the log from my system too:

  boot with nomodeset 3
  modprobe -r radeon drm
  modprobe drm debug=1
  modprobe radeon modeset=1
Comment 15 Adam Williamson 2009-04-15 15:20:30 EDT
kevin dekorte, can you file a separate bug? KMS failures on different chipsets don't necessarily have the same cause, so we need separate reports for each failing chipset.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 17 Stefan Becker 2009-09-12 04:10:33 EDT
Fedora 12 Radeon Test Day: KMS works now on this HW.

I doubt this will ever be fixed for F11, because it still uses the old radeon code base.
