Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-01-28 11:03:22 UTC
does it otherwise work ?

Comment 2 Josiah Royse 2003-01-28 13:20:18 UTC
Oops, should have put this in the original report- This error is suspiciously
the last one in the messages file.  This morning at 5:00AM I woke up and the PC
was frozen, Caps-lock/Num-lock/Monitor would not come on- no power savings are
enabled.  I've got the system up2date, I'll keep an eye out for more errors.

Comment 3 Josiah Royse 2003-04-08 14:49:06 UTC
No crashes, on RH 9 - same setup and video card, I haven't found any of the
previous errors in the /var/log/messages file, here is the only thing under
radeon now (normal stuff):
