Bug#174915: xf86PciInfo.h does not have appropriate data for my card, even though XFree86 found valid card configuration.

Package: XFree86
Version: 4.1.0.1

I am sending this e-mail once again since I didn't include Package
information before.

When I ran /usr/bin/x11/xf86cfg, it gave me this error message.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
 XFree86 found a valid card configuration.
 Unfortunately the appropriate data has not been added to xf86PciInfo.h.
 Please forward 'scanpci -v' output to XFree86 support team.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
The whole log file of running xf86cfg is attached 'XFree86.8.log'.

'scanpci -v' output is also attached as a file named 'scanpciresult'.

When I ran 'starx', it failed to show me xwindow. It said 'No device
detected', even though I thought I put a proper module for the device.
The attached file, 'XFree86.0.log' is the log file for running 'startx'.

The device I am using is ATI Rage 128 Pro (as is shown on the video card).
The monitor I am using is SAMSUNG SyncMaster 750s. Horizontal frequency
range is 30-70kHz and vertical frequency is 50-160kHz, which I found from
manufacturer's homepage.

I am using Debian GNU/Linux 3.0r1, kernel 2.2.20.

Thank you,
Sungjong Woo

Subject: Possible bug in installation

I have tried to install Debian Woody 3.0 a total of six times and each
time the same thing happens.  My video is all screwed up.  XWindows does
not work.  When I pick up video card (i810) it won't work at all.  If I
pick VESA it will "sort of" work - i.e., not the resolution I pick so
things "float" across the screen and the resolution will not go above
800X600.  Someone told me there was a bug in the kernel.  I have had no
problem with my system using either Mandrake, Redhat, SuSE or Knoppix -
only Debian (Woody).  Can you help!  Thanks!

Thanks so much for this patch.  I knew the bug could be fixed this way
but I was hoping someone would fix the external dependencies instead.

Oh well, that's upstream's problem, I guess.

Thanks again.

I will not have Debian's XFree86 packages break protocol compatibility
with upstream XFree86.

I am on the fence regarding these patches until I know whether they do
so or not.

In any case, getting these patches aired upstream (XFree86, not
necessarily X.Org) is a very, very good idea, because people much
savvier with X protocol design and implementation details can thus get a
good, critical look at it.

I have a fix pending for 4.2.1-5:

  * patch #000_stolen_from_HEAD_savage_driver: new
    + Fixed memory leaks in S3 Savage driver (Egbert Eich).
    + Savage driver updates (#5203, Tim Roberts).
    + [...] xf86SetOperatingState() call cleanups in most drivers
      (Marc La France).
    + Savage driver updates.
        - Support for ProSavage DDR (PCI ID 0x8D04)
        - TV output fixes
        - support for -pixmap24 flag
        - XAA fixes to cure lockups
        (#5412, Tim Roberts).
    + Fix Mono8x8 code in savage driver, needed ROP_NEEDS_SOURCE, also
      add NO_PLANEMASK to ScreenToScreen as code doesn't handle that case
      (Alan Hourihane).
    + Remove "Option VideoRam" from savage driver, there's no need for
      it, and utilize the entities given VideoRam size (Alan Hourihane).

 Compiling XFree86 with this patch does not refer X11/* headers
out of the source tree. Of cause Build-Depends: xlibs-dev is not
needed. I've tested the build under clean installed chroot sid tree.
The chroot system tree does not have X11 headers.

 This fix is not enough for these bug reports?

 I'm confising about `external dependencues'.

 I believed that "`external dependencues` said in the reports
means xfree86 build depends xfree86 generated files. So,
we should add xfree86 Build-Depends: xlibs-dev or so....."

Of course this is a very very good argument perfectly understandable.
