You said: """ I just built 22.214.171.124 from CVS on my Radeon 7500 Mobility laptop. Starting X yields a blank display and a locked keyboard. Attempting to kill X or shutdown the laptop via ssh results in a complete system lockup. """
I had a similar problem (same video card, 126.96.36.199 binary) that was caused by a mismatched radeon.o kernel module. I'm not sure if that's what's going wrong for you though. Building the module from the latest DRI CVS sources solved it, but there were other problems: 1. The new cursors don't work well with hardware cursor acceleration in the radeon driver. X would lock for a second or two any time the cursor had to change from a new-style Xcursor cursor (e.g. red arrow) to an old core cursor (e.g. edge resize arrows). Using option "SWcursor" "true" solves the problem at the expense of disabling hw cursor acceleration. 2. I was using KDM and after exiting X my machine would lock up as it tried to restart the login screen. I think that even without KDM I couldn't restart X after I started it once. I'm not positive about this though. Out of curiosity, since you also have a 7500 mobility, have you ever tried running it dual-head with an external monitor? I'm trying to make that happen and having problems: http://email@example.com/msg00947.html Cheers, -n8 -- >>>-- Nathaniel Gray -- Caltech Computer Science ------> >>>-- Mojave Project -- http://mojave.cs.caltech.edu --> _______________________________________________ XFree86 mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://XFree86.Org/mailman/listinfo/xfree86
