Description Bezzegh Dénes 2007-01-22 22:24:35 UTC
If I try to start X with the ATI fglrx driver the System hangs completely. No logs, no nothing, only cold boot helps. I was trying many ways to solve this without effort.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. changing xorg.conf to use fglrx driver
2. startx

Actual Results:  
hangs system.

Using Device1 works fine, using Device0 hangs system. (I would like to have direct rendering...)

Maybe if you could enlighten us how on earth are we supposed to debug your issue without any information whatsoever...

Good point. :) I don't know what information I should provide. Please ask me! 
Comment 5 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-23 07:58:27 UTC
Well, unless there's something in the logs (/var/log/messages, Xorg.log) then there's nothing we could, sorry. Take this issue to ATI unless you are able to provide something.

I have compiled a kernel without framebuffer and EDID and managed at least to produce an Xorg.0.log 
The screen was messed up after startx, switch to console didn't work, but ctrl+alt+del made the system to reboot.
Comment 7 Bezzegh Dénes 2007-01-23 11:44:28 UTC
I could provide an Xorg.0.log 
Is there something usable?
Comment 8 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-23 20:14:23 UTC
No, not really. Anyway, this is not a support forum for proprietary stuff, sorry.
Comment 9 Bezzegh Dénes 2007-01-24 07:13:29 UTC
Thanks anyway. ATI sucks...
