Description Peter Lannigan 2009-05-12 14:22:55 EDT
Description of problem:

Running "Xorg -configure" produces the following error.

(EE) LoadModule: Module ati_r500 does not have a ati_r500ModuleData data object.
(EE) Failed to load module "ati_r500" (invalid module, 0)

Hardware is a Dell Optiplex 755 with the following video card
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV610 [Radeon HD 2400 XT]

xorg-x11-drv-ati.x86_64   6.6.3-3.22.el5

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

To get around the problem I removed the following file and soft-link from /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers:  ati_r500_drv.so ati_tp_drv.so.  Once those were removed the 'Xorg -configure' ran fine.

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.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

This doesn't need X log, it's a straightforward build problem.

Adding to 5.5 radar.
