Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 500449
xorg ati driver has possible link problem in ati_r500
Last modified: 2014-06-17 12:17:26 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]
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. move /etc/X11/xorg.conf out of the way
2. run 'Xorg -configure'
3. check logs
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.
