XFree86 does not work on ES45 w/ video card in hoses 1,2, or3
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:39:09 EDT
Description of Problem:
XFree86 does not work on ES45 unless the video card is in hose 0 (i.e. hoses 1,
2, and 3 don't work)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put video card in hose 1, 2, or 3 (hose can be checked with show config from
2. Try to use XFree86
No device found
Can be fixed by applying XFree86 patches sent previously
The latest XFree86 build internally is 4.1.0-15, which does contain
the patches that were sent to me.
I do not think people are pulling their packages from my latest builds.
XFree86-4.1.0-8 is ancient.
There is one additional patch (beyond those already submitted) to allow XFree86
to work properly with a video card (tested with AGP Radeon) in hose 1,2,or 3
with the configuration file generated by Xconfigurator. This patch forces VGA_EN
for invisible pci host bridges (as is already done for probed pci host bridges)
to allow proper defaulting of the busid so that in a single video card
configuration, a single device section without a BusID can be properly assigned.
Patch will be attached.

force VGA_EN on invisible PCI host bridge
Fixed in upcoming release.
The previously submitted version of the 101_anyhose patch inadvertently broke
sparse memory systems. A corrected patch will be attached -- please apply the
corrected patch instead of the original one.

Patch submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
I'm closing this case because it was fixed in the Feb 22 delivery. Please let
us know if you still see any problems with this issue.
