 Strange problem with radeon 32mb sdr and X
When I start X in any mode other than 8bit colour, X windows locks up. The
screen becomes scrambled in all sorts of colours and I have to reset the pc.
What's odd is that during the installation I tested my configuration (32bit
1024x768) and it ran fine. But after the installation, the only mode I could
use was 8bit colour. Any help would be very much appreciated!
Oh and btw, the distribution is redhat 7.2 and the X server is version 4.10
I believe..

 Strange problem with radeon 32mb sdr and X

I still haven't found out why, but it seems the refresh rate programming for
the radeon driver was broken in 4.1.0. On my system with a Radeon 64MB DDR
VIVO, I couldn't get 4.1.0 to work except for 1280x1024, and even though the
log file said it was running at 75 Hz, the actual output frequency was 48Hz.
After I upgraded to 4.2.0, I got all the right refresh rates as detected by
DDS from my monitor (but now there seems to be another problem: the original
screen setting isn't restored when the X server is shut down - I'm trying to
figure out why, as we speak)

So you may want to upgrade to the 4.2.0 version of XFree86 or even to the
latest CVS version of the radeon_driver file (which has some more stuff
fixed after 4.2.0 - haven't tried it yet so I don't know if it will fix the
