        I think than this driver doesn't work with any distribution if You have Radeon HD 2xxx for AGP. You can run driver on Red Hat? What version?

            Maybe Red Hat Graphical Boot ?

              Yes, Red Hat Graphical Boot. Though RHGB uses vesafb.

              With the GDM system freeze when starting is it a blank black screen? If so, try removing the "rhgb" argument from GRUB and then booting. RHGB won't start, but better chances that GDM will start without freezing. I've experienced that bug multiple times a number of months ago, but these days I am not running many Fedora/RH* boxes.

                  I'm summiting a service ticket for this card on the AMD website. If other could do the same, it would be a great way to get thing moving.
