This looks more like a misconfiguration on your part, or misunderstanding
of how to swap video cards and reconfigure X properly.

Please attach your config file so I can see it.

This is the configuration file.

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2002-11-11 04:32:54 UTC
xf86config is not a supported configuration tool.  The proper config
tool is "redhat-config-xfree86".  I've got a number of Radeon 7500 cards
which all work on x86, and Itanium (AGP).

This isn't a bug, it is a configuration issue.
