Hi, I'm on a fresh install of Fedora 11. Last night I decided to install kmod-catalyst and it completely broke Xorg. I check the logs and it had to do with radeon module loading along side with fglrx. I did the necessary steps to block radeon from loading. It worked. I can login and once I reach the desktop, it froze. It happenes on every reboot. My log directory is mounted in tmpfs. However I was able to make hard copies of all my logs. I check them and in dmesg, fglrx was complaining that it was trying to do something and it failed. I didn't take notice and rebooted a few times trying to figure out what was causing the problem. Now I check my logs and THE error has disappeared but the problem still exists. I will show you my logs if anything appears relevant. I'm just coming from F10 but I didn't upgrade, I just format and install F11. I have check all my logs since, none of them show any errors, neither kernel panic. It all seems, it should work. I'm on KDE 4.3.1, and not sure if KDE is the culprit.
I also followed this guide http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=155503
, I added all the kernel command line aguements, nopat nomodeset and even vga=0x318 but it complianed that 318 is undefined.
UPDATE! I'm trying again now, so far it hasn't froze... I doubt it will last long
UPDATE! It just froze
UPDATE! Problem solved. I fix the problem by adding "SWcursor" "true" to my device section. I also added an extra ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/extensions". It was missing and I added it because it might solve any issues that may arise. Also, after every reboot the extra modulepath would be removed. I track that down to livna-config-display which keeps populated a new config file on every reboot. I disabled it by issuing this "# livna-config-display --active off".
All software are pain in the butt including but not limited to windowz.....
