[Bug 558378] Re: 1002:7942 Please blacklist ATI XPRESS 1250 from Kernel mode-setting


Antoine Pairet, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been
any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an
issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development
release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  1002:7942 Please blacklist ATI XPRESS 1250 from Kernel mode-setting

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Please add ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Xpress 1250 [1002:7942] to the
  kernel drm KMS blacklist.

  Testing has shown that KMS support for the ati xpress 1250 is inadequate, often resulting in a regression where the system hangs during boot up. Testers have found that booting with radeon.modeset=0 restores the system functionality. This is why this particular video card should be blacklisted.

  As suggested by Brice Harrington in bug #542208, comment 17, it is
  better to keep one report per chip.

  [initial bug report: symptoms of what happens when one tries to boot with kms enabled]
  Here are some details of what happens:
    1. setting nomodeset option
    2. editing boot option, removing quiet and splash
    3. Selecting Try Ubuntu
    4. System begins to boot, lots of messages are printed on the screen
    5. After 2-3 seconds, screen goes black although disk activity continues
    6. Screen keeps being black and the computer is unusable
