ati all in wonder 7500 radeon XFree86 4.3 problem
 
Could someone please tell me if they have succeeded in getting
their ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 7500 (AGP w/64Mb) working in
XFree86 4.3?
I am using SuSE 8.2 and I don't see why it shouldn't work?

Using Sax2 I choose the following:
Graphics Card: ATI RV200 QW
Color and Resolution: 1600x1200 @ 24 bit
3D Acceleration: Enabled
Monitor: SONY MULTISCAN G400 (CPD-G400)

(although I actually have the Sony Multiscan G410, but
it isn't listed in Sax2 anywhere under SONY).
A hardware probe using YAST2 shows the monitor correctly
as: CPD-G410R (capable of 1600x1200 w/vfreq @ 85)
min_hsync 30, max_hsync 110, min_vsync 48, max_vsync 170

Hardware scan also detects my display adapter correctly as:
RV200 QW "ATI RV200 QW" server: radeon
and mentions that it requires XFree86-GLX

When I test the server, all I get is:
"X Server test failed:
(EE) RADEON(0): No Valid mode found for this DFP/LCD
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration"

I am relegated to using the Framebuffer fbdev server
running at 1280x1024 without 3D enabled.

I am using XFree86 v4.3, kernel is 2.4.20,
(all standard from SuSE 8.2 Professional).
I would like to run 24bit color at 1600x1200, can someone please
point me in the right direction?

Thanks very much.

One thing I did notice however is that there is no
XF86Config-4 file in /etc/X11, I presume it's using the
XF86Config file only.

This problem means that XFree can't display because can't find a combination beetwen yr monitor settings, resolution, driver,..
Probably yr monitor settings are wrong!
Take a look here: http://www.freebsdforums.org/forums/...threadid=14738

To see which config file yr XFree uses take a look at yr /var/log/XFRee86.0.log (or similar)
