Description Andrew 2003-04-11 04:44:55 UTC
Description of problem:After running through the install of Redhat 9.0 and 
booting for the first time I get an error that the Xserver cannot start. Viewing 
the Xserver log I get this 

(WW)RADEON: No matching Device section for this instance (BusID PCI:2:0:1) f

(EE)RADEON: No valid mode found for this DFP/LCD

(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a useable configuration

Running the Xconfigurator doesn't do any good and I get the same error.

In the install you can choose your video card after it's probed and I tried with 
both the Radeon 9700 Pro and Radeon 9700, I have the Pro.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):Radhat 9.0

How reproducible:Install Redhat 9.0 and Choose Radeon 9700 or 9700 Pro in the 
graphical install.

Steps to Reproduce:

1.Radeon 9700 Pro

2.Graphical install of Redhat 9.0

3.Boot after install and Choosing Radeon 9700 or Pro


Actual results:

Expected results:

Was it necessary to file the same bug report 4 times in a row?

Run "redhat-config-xfree86 --reconfig" as root, and once it completes, try
to start the X server.  If it fails, attach your X config file and log file.
Are you using one head, or 2, and what is attached to each of them.

Also, it is "Red Hat Linux 9", there's intentionally no ".0"

Hmm sorry I must have done something wrong there that it got filed so many 
times. I'll go run redhat-config.

here is my XF86Config file

Here's my XF86Config file, I think this is the config file you wanted but how
and where do I find the log file? I'm sorry I'm very new to Linux, if you can
provide me with a path and file name I'll upload it. Thanks!
