X-windows doesn't work with Radeon.
I'm unable to use a higher resolution than 1024x768 with the "radeon" driver.
My system is an x86 with GNU/Linux Slackware 12.2, it has a Radeon Xpress 200 integrated graphics card.
If I attempt to use the "vesa" driver I get no usable screens.
If I attempt to use the proprietary ATI driver the entire system will crash -- the display turns black, and the computer freezes, I'm assuming this is due to a kernel panic. I've tried at least 5 different driver versions of the proprietary ATI driver, none work so far.
The computer works perfectly fine in every other regard.
When I try to force X to use 1280x1024 I get in the Xorg.log:
"(EE) RADEON(0): Using VGA default."
Attached here is my dmesg, Xorg.log and xorg.conf files:
