Description Stuart Kreitman 2006-04-10 00:41:23 UTC
The DRAC appears to report that it has a DVI port, but it only has a VGA port.
Attach a display to the VGA port and startup Xorg 6.9.0
With no xorg.conf file, Xorg.0.log says:

 (II) RADEON(0): Primary:
     Monitor   -- TMDS
     Connector -- DVI-I
     DAC Type  -- TVDAC/ExtDAC
     TMDS Type -- Internal
     DDC Type  -- DVI_DDC

and there is no sync signal.

Create an xorg.conf file, add the line:
If we put in  Option "MonitorLayout" "CRT, TMDS" it reports:

   (II) RADEON(0): Connector0: DDCType-2, DACType-1, TMDSType-0,
    (**) RADEON(0): MonitorLayout Option:
            Monitor1--Type CRT, Monitor2--Type TMDS

    (II) RADEON(0): End of Monitor1 EDID data --------------------
    (II) RADEON(0): Primary:
     Monitor   -- CRT
     Connector -- DVI-I
     DAC Type  -- TVDAC/ExtDAC
     TMDS Type -- Internal
     DDC Type  -- DVI_DDC

Now, the screen lights up. Notice that the report "Monitor" and "Connector"
above are contradictory.

On Xorg 6.8.2, the sync signal work fine, it does not need the MonitorLayout 
option. Even so, 6.8.2 reports "Monitor -- TMDS"

Last patch activity sponsored by Dell clusters around the July, 2005 timeframe
on unrelated issues.

Can you try again with the xf86-video-ati 5.8.0 release or CVS HEAD or
ati-1-0-branch? There have been some fixes that might affect this.
Comment 2 Alan Coopersmith 2006-07-20 16:33:00 UTC
Should this be closed as a dup of #7367 (which is already fixed)?
Comment 3 Timo Jyrinki 2007-02-22 14:28:12 UTC
Marking broken (status null/blank) bugs in xorg with no activity in a long time as fixed. Please reopen if you think it's necessary, but first do a search if a similar bug report is already filed and in a NEW/ASSIGNED state. These bugs do not currently show in most search results as they do not have any status.
