I recently upgraded my 15" AlBook 1.25Ghz to Kernel 2.6.2_rc1-r1 and have it set up with basically the same setup as I had been successfully running 2.6 all the way back to 2.6.0-test9-benh5 or whatever and have discovered to my horror that what was a perfectly working x config no longer works. I use the radeon driver loaded as a module. Has anybody else had troubles with the radeon driver in this release?? I am running XFree 4.3.99.16 and it had worked perfectly before. All I had to do was run Xeasyconf and BOOM! I had Xfree86 up and running under 24bit colour and everything. Now Xeasyconf produces a config file that wont even load and produces the following error:

Parse error on line 106 of Secion Screen in file /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
"1280x854" is not a valid keyword in this section.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Could the problem lie ine the fact that XFree hasn't been recompiled since the kernel was that old??

Just as a side note, what do the xfree-4.3.99.901(2) offer over the 4.3.99.16??

as always any help is greatly appreciated

Additionally, MOL which had no problems detecting appropriate video modes previously now can only locate video modes at 8bpp, absolutely horrible and unusable so it has to be a kernel/radeon driver issue!

Go into your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and look for Lines that contain 1280x854 (without the " "). Edit these lines to "1280x854" (with the " "!) Then this error message should go away...

Hope that helps.



Kind regards, Lars
