Description of problem:
I have a Planar 17.4 LCD monitor with a Radeon VE video card (on DVI 
output). I can get the monitor to work with VESA drivers but if I try the 
Radeon drivers the monitor goes blank after typing startx. I can't even 
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace out of it.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Red Hat setup, found Radeon generic card.
2. Type startx after reboot (after bypassing Testing X in setup because it 
does not work.

Actual Results:  Blank screen

Expected Results:  Not a blank screen.

Additional info:

Here are the monitor settings I used in my /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file . I 
got them from Jon at Thinkgeek (http://www.thinkgeek.com/aboot/jon.html). 
He's got 3 of the same LCDs working side by side. But he is using analog 
output from an Nvidia card.

Section "Monitor"
  HorizSync     15-80
  Identifier    "Monitor[0]"
  ModelName     "AutoScan"
  VendorName    "AutoScan"
  VertRefresh   60

Please note again that I am using DVI output.

We (Red Hat) should try to fix this for the next release.

Upon downloading the newer Rawhide verison of XFree86, 4.1.0-0.9.11, everything
now works!!!

Is this somewhat similar to bug 50004?
