No monitor (was Re: Debian vs. ATI Radeon x1650)


thanks a lot for your help, I really appreciate it.

Yes, it's strange. I thing there's some message (an error probably) on
the screen just right before monitor's sleep mode, but it's too quick to
read it :/

I've tried xrandr -q
output: no devices

See attached file.

Thanks for the links. I was experimenting with those settings, but
resulting in monitor's sleep mode only so far...


I'm thinking about switching to gNewSense (everything is working fine
there), I'll try Debian again in a month or so.. with better luck maybe :)

I just wanted to finish some work on packages I was co-maintaining
before leaving Debian :/
