Anyone has the same problem?

Since upgrading to kernel 2.6.23.9-85 and kmod-fglrx from Livna, my machine hangs when starting the X server. It is completely stuck, black screen, not responsive.

I had to change the driver to vesa to make it work again.

I had no problem with older versions. My card is a Radeon X1550, CPU by AMD.

i've been experiening the same issue for the last 4 days, counting now with 8 new installs caus i can't get direct rendering to work with my Ati HD2600 card on a 2600+ AMD proc. as posted in the http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=155503

found a driver specific for the hd2400-2900 series version 8.41.7, trying that one now. if not it's install number 9 and rebuild that driver, perhaps i can find the livna driver of that version somewhere.

answers will be in the above thread
