Created attachment 73870 [details]


I have some major problem with my graphic card Radeon VE/7000 8MB VRAM PCI. When I start X only cursor appears on black screen. No openbox, no lxpanel, no wallpaper only cursor is visible. Lxpanel & openbox are running. I can't trun off X by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Fx or by Alt+Sysrq+B. When I connect via ssh and send power off command, computer switches off after approx 90 seconds (normaly it takes about 4 sec). I have systemd 197.

Radeon is working fine when KMS is disabled. I'm currently using xf86-video-ati 7.0.0, kernel 3.7.4, libdrm 2.4.41.

I'm attaching some logs. If you need extra logs please let me know.

Best regards,

Can you attach your xorg log with KMS disabled?

possible fix

Looks like a vbios bug.  I doubt your board actually uses external TMDS.  Does the attached kernel patch fix the issue?

I'll let you know a soon as my-bloody-slow-Celeron-800-MHz finishes compiling the kernel.
Comment 6 Krzysztof Grygiencz 2013-01-30 12:38:18 UTC
The patch works great! Thanks.
Comment 7 Alex Deucher 2013-02-04 19:44:43 UTC
Patch is upstream:
and should show up in stable kernels as well soon.
