Summary0003309: Failed to start X on Panasonic Toughbook CF-52
DescriptionI was unable to do a graphical installation probably for the same reasons that I can't start X server.

When I try to start X, screen become grey and X server seems to freeze.
I can't switch between terminals (Alt-F[1-7]), I can't kill the X server (Ctrl-Alt-Backspace) and I have no other choice than restart the laptop.
Additional InformationI got the same problem when I tried to install the initial Fedora 9.

Video controller is ATI Technologies Inc M71 [Mobility Radeon X2100] (rev ce).

Most interresting lines in Xorg.0.log are:
(WW) RADEON_TP(0): This is an unsupported tech-preview for RHEL5 of a driver for Radeon R500/R600 class cards. Please report any bugs in RH bugzilla.
(WW) RADEON_TP(0): R500 support is under development. Please report any issues to

Under "Additional Information" you show two lines of information from the Xorg logfile that have explicit instructions. Will you please show us the two reference numbers.

This issue does not appear to be a (CentOS) bug.

Sorry, I don't understand "the two reference numbers" your talking about.
If it is line numbers in Xorg.0.log, they are 590 and 591.

The Red Hat bugzilla reference number -- "Please report any bugs in RH bugzilla"
and any reference number as a result of -- "Please report any issues to".

These lines are extracted for Xorg.0.log produced yesterday.
Can I report a bug in RedHat even if I don't used RHEL?
Of Course, I know that Centos 5.2 is RHEL 5.2.

I didn't report any bug at because the bug was fixed as you can see in the bug report I mentionned in the 2nd line of Additional Information.
