Package: xserver-xorg-video-ati
Version: 1:6.6.193-3

When the system launches GDM after starting the computer, if the video
driver is "ati" the screen goes black, like if there was no signal, and
the keyboard doesnt respond. With the video driver "vesa" there is no

It happens since I upgraded xserver-xorg-video-ati (and many other xorg
packages due to yesterdays upgrade).

Running Linux 2.6.21-1-686 #1 and libc6 2.6.1-5.
I have an ATI RADEON 7000 graphics card.

Ok, it's probably caused by your AGP hardware not working perfectly.
Switching to PCI mode causes the software to use the hardware a little
bit slowly.
I am closing this bug now.

Maybe Gnome is switching to another mode right after startup and the CRT
position needs to be modified accordingly.

You can see the mode currently in use by running "xrandr" without argument.
If you stop gdm, start X with "startx /usr/bin/xterm", you should get
the same
mode than gdm does, save xrandr output into a file.
Then start Gnome as usual and save the xrandr output as well. If the current
mode in both xrandr outputs is different, then try to switch from one to the
other with xrandr.
