    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.

              I write to AMD with this problem per ticket system, but I have answer, than for Linux drivers they aren't offer technical support, so We must wait for new Catalyst version.

                They do not support this card and they never will!!!!!

                So Who want to trade a HD2600 Pro agp against a 7600gt agp ???

                  The AGP cards are more or less unsupported addons. You can also have got huge problems with V when you own a nforce3 board and a dual core CPU. Best way: sell you old AGP board and buy a new one with PCI-E. Maybe use the time for a real system upgrade...

                    Can you post a copy of the message you received, fred?
                    This is disappointing news as I quite recently invested in the AGP card since my dual-core + 4 GB DDR433 memory AGP-based system is otherwise quite up-to-date.
                    There's still the on-going development in the radeonhd driver though, so all my hope is not lost :-)

                      Yes, if You can please put on this forum this message. I thnik than ATI don't support and newer will be Radeon for Linux, but not sapport per Drivers, only technical support I think than next release of Catalyst will be ok

                        The same here...

                        I just bought a Sapphire Radeon HD 2400 pro AGP, yesterday...

                          Well not only for Linux AGP is a really bad investment. When you use nForce 3 and DualCore you are forced to use Nvida Gfx cards if you intend to use Vista for dual boot or so. I would return the card if possible...

                            I wasn't expecting so much , just to run my video card on my MSI KT600 AGP with an AMD XP Barton 2500+

                            I am waiting for an answer from AMD now... and will see... but I'm very surprise by first answer some guys could had (never supported card)... it's quite new, with an simple AGP bus... it's too easy as answer.

                            I bought it because http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html clearly says there is driver for this card... but there is not...

                            So right now, it's a scam for all those who will bought an AGP version.
