Xorg on openSuSE on certain ES1000 ATI card on HP server
I ought to blog about this, too, but I don't have all the details anymore. I was asked to fix X on an HP server running OpenSuSE. It has an ATI ES1000 card of some sort. I should have the output of lspci for you but I don't, I was in a hurry, it's not my server and I don't have access to it now. I can update the post if I find out.
The graphics works fine in fail safe mode booting with the kernel option "x11failsafe" (- what does this do exactly, anyway?). When booting without this, the graphics are milky and half transparent and almost unreadable.
What solves the problem is the line
in the "Device" section. The radeon or ati driver gives same result. The graphics with this option are not quite what I would accept on my daily workstation - but certainly good enough for a server.
I found it on an Ubuntu forum - thanks to the guy sharing this! I think this is the one: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=476124
