Please attach the files individually via the link below.  Bug reports
may require some time before a fix is available, and if the info
is not directly in the bug report, someone's web/ftp URL may vanish
over time, or they may delete the files.  If they are attached to
the bug report, they are readily available to all developers as long
as the bug report remains open.

Can you please also attach the output of "lspci -n" and "lspci -vn".

I have a different ATI card but the same problemt. Look at my bug #55013 and 
see if my solution can help you.
Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2001-11-19 04:57:16 EST
jak97@doc.ic.ac.uk:  Does the solution in bug #55013 fix the problem
for you?

Comment 8 Need Real Name 2001-11-19 06:11:13 EST

The solution mentioned in bug #55013 did not work for me, however, ATI have 
recently contributed some fixes to the XFree86 CVS which make the Radeon 
Mobility work perfectly.

Ok, closing as fixed in CURRENTRELEASE (RHL 7.3) then, since the
CVS code from the time of the last comment would be XFree86 4.2.0
which is part of RHL 7.3.
