XFree 4.2.1 and Radeon 9000 hickups.
I use XFree 4.1.2 with a Radeon 9000 video card.
I retrieved the beta packages 4.2.1-3 from Branden's repository.
I managed to get it run by setting
in the XF86Config-4.
I get a aceptable image at 1152x864 and 75 Hz.
However, there are some things that are strange:
1.) After a while the PS/2 mouse starts to move errornously to the lower
left corner, random key press events occurr (such as past into
xterms - yacc!).
This seems not to be related to system load. The mouse has an
exclusive interupt, all unnecessary devises are switched off in the
BIOS. I tried three different mice, all with the same result.
2.) Setting NumLock disables all special window manager actions.
This used to work before
I am still using fvwm1, and I will have to fix this in my configuration.
3.) When moving the mouse pressing ALT of Shift stops the mouse until
they are released.
This is the head of the startup messages
X: warning; process set to priority 0 instead of requested priority -10
