Description 404 Error 2009-12-16 19:39:51 UTC

Log of the crash 

From the console of a machine equipped of two ATI 4850 (RV770) linked in CrossfireX loading the radeon kernel module with modeset=1 results in a crash (see attached log) and a black screen. Disabling KMS makes the the radeon kernel module being loaded without any issues.

When the screen turns black, the LED of my monitor does not blink so a signal seems to be detected by the monitor (digital connection).

If I can be of any help, please just mention what I should do to provide more details/traces/etc.

Tested again with the 2.6.33-rc4 : this time the screen becomes blank and the LED on the front panel blinks indicating no valid signal. See attached log.

FYI, the first bug description and  the "Log of crash" attachment were made for linux 2.6.32. I renamed the bug description as it happens under Linux 2.6.33 too.
Comment 4 404 Error 2010-06-25 16:07:09 UTC
Same troubles noted under 2.6.33 and 2.6.34. 

Trouble gone away in 2.6.35 ! Unfortunately I face to some other issues...
