    It's definitely the X1300 though, I popped in a nvidia 7600GT and it worked without any issue what-so-ever.

    I'm thinking if ATI/AMD doesn't start cooperating with the OSS community I'm going to stop buying ATI Video cards, and AMD processors altogether.

    So you're just using the vesa driver and not fglrx...

      Affirmative.

      Sorry I should have been more clear. That is indeed with the vesa driver.
      With fglrx chosen X also refuses to boot.

          Previous versions didn't work with X server 1.3 without hack.

                Last I tried with the hack it didn't work for Fedora 7 (though it bypassed the X 1.3 check).

                    The problem lies inside the fglrx blob. Aticonfig for 8.38 will work and hopefully the fglrx_drv.so will be fixed in time as well.

                      but the 8.38 driver will take a while to ge tout, i'm just searching for a temporary solution.

                          The open-source Radeon driver, but that will not work with the R500 X1000 series.

                              There is no Linux driver -- either fglrx or Radeon -- that supports the Radeon HD 2000 R600 series. You'll need to wait for that support as well, which should be soon.
