XFree86 + Radeon 9200se
I've recently installed Xfree86 from the testing branch. I have an ATI
Radeon 9200se card which I have been unable to get working.
I've tried with the manufacturer's fglrx driver, and I've also tried
with xserver-xfree86 using radeon, ati, vga16, and the vesa drivers.
These all have the same result. X will start. But as soon as I click
just about any keyboard key (including non-printing keys), my monitor
goes completely black, my monitor clicks as if changing profiles, and
then the screen is refreshed. If a printable key was hit, the
corresponding character is not printed. Some keys like Shift do not
cause this to happen.
I have my monitor's book, so I know the vertical and horizontal sync
ranges I've given are accurate.
I've google'd around, and tried 6 or 7 solutions that worked for other
people, but they do not work for me. The video card was in a Debian
machine previously running in testing also (with KDE and xfree86), and
it had worked just fine.
I check my xf86 log to find nothing terribly out of place. No mention
of errors, a few warnings just telling me various options of the ATI
card are disabled, nothing that looks like it should cause harm though.
