Description David Mansfield 2010-06-02 21:38:03 EDT
Description of problem:
The generated xorg.conf specifies VESA driver, however if I run X without any config, it correctly loads the driver for the ati radeon HD3450 card.  It is now impossible to get a config that matches the "default" as if you were to run without any xorg.conf at all.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-server 1.8.0-12.fc13 

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Xorg -configure
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
uses VESA

Expected results:
uses radeon or whatever is used for radeon in F13 (not sure at the moment)

Please attach

* * X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log), and
* output of the dmesg command,

(from running both with and without xorg.conf, which please attach as well) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link above.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

i believe the attached files are as requested.
Comment 8 David Mansfield 2010-06-09 12:11:01 EDT
i should note: the attached "with xorg.conf" files (including xorg.conf) were generated after booting to runlevel 3 with "nomodeset" on the command line, however i did verify the exact same results either way (the generated xorg.conf is byte-for-byte identical when booting with or without KMS).
Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2011-06-02 08:16:18 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '13'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

This bug got no love.  I suggest a new "resolution":

CLOSED/NOLOVE
