Radeon 9200 ADP Video card


This is quite interesting... I have a very similar video card
(actually it's a Radeon 9200SE)



AMD Cool & Quiet is enabled (although I get the same response with it
enabled)

ACPI 2.0 Support:        [No]
ACPI APIC Support:    [Enabled]



Same as me... What I have noticed is that if Cool & Quiet is disabled,
the powernowk8 error message is: "BIOS Error: No PSB", as expected, as
C&Q is disabled; if it's enabled, the error is "ph2 null fid
transition ...";

Quite intriguing... it seems that the system is unable to configure
the video card...  The device is located and determined to be agp 3.0
compliant, but the system is unable to put the device on AGP 4x
mode.... I guess that's the problem. Have you got an nvidia card to
give it a chance on this system? I could do it, but I am not home
right now (vacation), and I won't be back before january 15th... Maybe
the problem has nothing to deal with cpufreq (ie.: the "powernowk8
error"...)




In /var/log/Xorg.0.log:
*** Though I'm very unfamilar with this, it appears I have some type
of video problem ***
I get errors ([hsync out of range] and [bad mode
clock/interface/doublescan]) on every screen resolution tested


As the system can't configure the video card, X.org can't set up
resolution, frequency, etc...




AND:


Check this: http://www.mail-archive.com/dri-devel lists sourceforge net/msg20752.html... Try setting your video card at AGP 4x mode on the bios... This worked against a 6.8.0 X.org, so let's hope that FC3's 6.8.1 will do it...

I figured this out late last night. I set the BIOS at AGP4x (My video card is a 9200 SE as well) and FC3 boots normally. Switching to 4x took care of the problem. I'm booting into KDE now to set up Samba. Thanks for the assistance.
