Problems with Fedora Core 5 and X on Radeon 9200 PRO




I Just installed Fedora Core 5 (and all the package updates) on
pretty standard Dell box. I have an AGP Radeon 9200PRO video
card and it is giving me problems. My monitor is a Dell 2000
flat panel connected via DVI, there is nothing on the VGA port
of the graphics card.

With the default configuration, the X server will start up, but the
screen will continually blank at the xdm login screen. In fact it
is blank 99% of the time. If I disable dri in the X config file,
I can get the display to stabilize somewhat, but after I log in,
any window title redraw, or mouse refocus, or window scroll causes
the screen to blank again momentarily.

I have disabled all acceleration in the X config file using

	Option "NoAccel" "true"

This gets rid of the screen blanking, but performance is terrible,
I tried various other config changes, but none of them helped.

This all used to work just fine with Fedora Core 4. It also works
reasonably well with KDE, it is gnome which appears to use the
features of X which do not work.

Some config file snippets:
