When you startx with a R200 radeon and dri enabled the system hangs. My monitor will switch to 128x1024 at 85hz and will be black with random color across the very top. The mouse and power button works for a time, and the keyboard dies right away. Mode 0666 is set in xorg conf.
I don't see Loading R200 Microcode in my dmesg, and there are 2 different microcodes. Only one shows up in dmesg so I put a line of code to show if the other one was being loaded. Nether messsage showed up in my dmesg. I then changed the code to always load the R200 code. It did not work. So no microcode for the radeon is being loaded on my system, ever. I have an nforce 2 chipset.
Edit xorg.conf to load dri. Have a radeon 8500(or some R200 or maybe a R100 core).
Get the code to load. Maybe the card is not being identified right?
