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.
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.
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.
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
We aim to please. ;o)
Is this somewhat similar to bug 50004?
