Re: Radeon 9000 Pro
Hi Yall & Antony,
who is having some grief, with his Radeon 9000 Pro (full text below).
My previous card is a Power Colour Radeon 9000 Pro & I am now on a 9500
I had my Radeon 9000 Pro up last year, using the DRI project stuff & it
is good for 2D & ok for 3D.
Now for a quick cup & paste....
Check out the howto @ this URL.... (if you have an nForce2 board,
otherwise the ATI drivers @ the German site linked in the article should
go in just fine)
Failing that, add this to your apt-get sources list for OK 2D & wait for
newer & easier to install drivers out of ATI
deb http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-trunk/ ./
I found the latter easier than downloading the full XFree86 4.3.
Up to you & *HTH*

I'm trying to get XFree86 going with my Radeon 9000 Pro in Woody.
Here's the X output:

In my XF86Config-4, I'm using the "radeon" driver, and not setting BusID (as
it's my only card). I have tried BusID's of PCI:01:00:00 and PCI:01:00:01,
but no luck. WIth the first one, I get the above error - with the second
the error message changes to "PCI:1:0:0".
I don't know if it's to do with being a dual-head card, but some advice
would really be appreciated. I only have one machine (currently in Windows
:( ) so I have to reboot if you guys need any more information, but I can do
it if necessary.
I've just thought of something. Perhaps the radeon driver needs both
devices listed in XF86Config. I'll try that now and report back.
