Problem with X.org xdm and ATI Radeon (?)
I have installed the xorg packages (version 6.8.2.dfsg.1-0pre1v1) from
David Nusinow repository and I have the same problem as Sean Neakums
described in his message
(http://lists.debian.org/debian-x/2005/06/msg00417.html): xdm flashing
and never displaying the standard login screen, but startx works perfectly.
Here is the error message from xdm.log:
X Error of failed request: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 14 (X_GetGeometry)
Resource id in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 42
Current serial number in output stream: 42
Here is my hardware information:
0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV350 [Mobility Radeon 9600 M10]
LCD screen at 1400x1050
and my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file contains:
Identifier "ATI Technologies, Inc. RV350 [Mobility Radeon 9600 M10]"
It may be a problem in the ati driver as Sean also had a Radeon graphic
Please ask me if you want more details about my configuration (I don't
want to flood the mailing list with possibly useless information).
A big thank you to everyone hard working here!
