    Default black border

    Hi

    Anyone using the latest 8.5 ati drivers? HAd a hard time getting it to compile and work. Finally got it compiled and my system can finally boot up to X. However, now my view are no longer display in full screen. I have a black border around the entire screen. Anyone else faced this problem?

    Before when I was on 8.4 and 8.3, never encounter this problem before.

    Is it an xorg.conf config issue? I have disable almost all the options i have inside already but still, it wont run in full screen. A alt-ctrl-backspace will restart X with the new xorg.conf without having to reboot the system, right?

    Anyone can help me?

    Might be worth commenting out the DesktopSetup option. Just a guess though...

    Also, can you dig through the xorg log and pick out the EDID- and screen-related lines ? It would be interesting to see what resolution & timing is being chosen relative to your screen's native resolution. Is this CRT or LCD ?

    Default Same problem here

    AMD Athlon(tm) X2 Dual Core Processor BE-2400
    x86_64 Fedora Core 8
    ATI Technologies Inc RS690 [Radeon X1200 Series]

    Commenting out the DesktopSetup line didn't help.

    Was fine under the last few versions.

    i remove all my settings and load the original xorg.conf that uses vesa drivers and the screen loaded in full screen in the entire monitor display.

    i actually have problems compiling the 8.5 drivers. so in the end, i used the script that i download from http://kanotix.com/files/install-fglrx-debian.sh to do the compiling and the installation and then the compilation can be completed with the deb files.

    i have download the drivers from ati went and build deb files from it, and install them. however, whenever i try to do a "m-a a-i fglrx", it will try to download the kernel-src from the apt sources. Is there anyway I can avoid that and make it use the kernel source that i have installed?

    i believe its pretty much the driver issues or something went wrong during compilation? I even try taking out all the fglrx config and put back as vesa, then run a "aticonfig --initial" and do a reboot. Problem still remains.

    This line makes me a bit suspicious :

    (WW) EDID preferred timing clock 154.00MHz exceeds claimed max 150MHz, fixing
    Is there any chance you upgraded any of the other X infrastructure (eg X server) or upgraded to a new distro version ? That message doesn't come from the driver.

    Might be worth pasting the entire log into something like pastebin and posting a link here. I can't see what mode was actually chosen (log cuts off too soon, understand the post size limit) so not sure if the X framework "fixed" the clock mismatch by allowing a mode at a too-high clock (probably the one you want) or forcing to a lower resolution (possibly causing the black borders).

    Exclamation Same here

    Same issue switching to 8.5 drivers (black border).

    I went back to 8.4 ...
