Re: Can't get X to work with ATI

Hi

I recently bought a new dell computer with a ATI x600 graphics-card. I tried installing FC4 on it, but a graphical installation is not possible. The monitor just goes black and the keyboard doesnt work. A text install on the other hand works fine. But booting into X, makes the screen go black again.

Fedora finds both the ati card and my monitor correctly. But no matter what i try, everything still goes black. In my xorg-log it says something about "screen not found", but i dont understand why, since this should be correct.

I've tried the xorg-driver and ati's own driver, but with no luck. The hints at fedorafaq.org <http://fedorafaq.org> doesn't help either.

Does anyone have any idea why X won't work?

Can you pls list your hardware (motherboard, chipset, etc)

Best,
Beppe
