Bug#503001: radeonhd: radeonhd 1.2.3 kde/xserver crash on log-out
I tried radeonhd 1.2.4, Xserver 1.5.99, Mesa and DRI from experimental. Found
2 or 3 things working:
(a) some XVideo Support - but still no on-screen menu for brightness/contrast
(b) evdev keyboards/mice work and got better - but I did not find out how to
configure a default "de" keyboard layout (kde fixes the server's layout only
for the 1st keyboard?). Tested a Cherry Marlin Multimedia kbd, found it
working, all 7 (?) mouse buttons worked. Also a Logitech di Novo Edge
keyboard works better then ever: horizontal scroll wheel now working and one
more MM-key (Search) now works, 8 MM-keys are still missing (Zoom-%, Zoom--,
Zoom-+, Phone, [A], [B], [C] and [D]).
(c) 3D acceleration: Can play ppracer and glxgears works but is a bit slow.
Things that still do not work:
(a) Logout crashes xserver/kdm (3.510).
(b) glxinfo quickly (resize) makes the xserver hang (needs reboot).
And one very ugly (and quite old) bug (for ASUS boards?):
(c) the Xserver or radeonhd (still) calculates a very wrong DPI value (even
the version in lenny does). For my ASUS hardware this for example breaks
Knoppix 6.x - only a hand full of huge letters get displayed. In my kdm
config I have to pass a fixed DPI value to overcome this.
I did almost no testing with xrandr yet (multi head works not well for ASUS
