What was I thinking?
An Apple LCD on an ATI video card on an nForce2 chip set?
Everyone has a profit center, and I have a black screen :-(
Giving up (for now) on fglrx or radeon drivers,
xorg or ATI's, I finally got into graphics mode
by falling all the way back to vesa driver.
And I'm finding there are many problems with
ATI Radeon family cards with Xorg radeon driver on FC3,
as I'm seeing reported in a number of forums...
from which consensus I conclude that
if you're lucky enough to have one of the rare configurations actually
supported by ATI's proprietary drivers, it may run a little faster than
the X.org drivers, the X.org drivers are otherwise way better, unless
you're unlucky enough to have an R300 chipset like in my
Radeon9700Pro, in which case... it's a vesa world on FC3 for now.
There are already many bug reports filed with X.org about the
radeon driver on FC3.
>The latest configs and logs at
The FC4T2 version (or current development) fixed a patch that was
incorrectly applied which caused malfunctioning with several radeon
cards. The changes applied to the development version to correct this
driver worked for my videocard type.
Did you try te latest version of xorg-x11? I am using xorg-x11-6.8.2-29
and it works fine for a ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility U1.
Either this helps or you can stick to vesa for awhile. Then when FC4
comes out later, it might work or you will be in the same situation.
Theory is gray, but the golden tree of life is green.
