I tried both of these ideas, separately and together. Seem to be getting closer. Instead of a blank screen I get random coloured vertical bars on parts of the screen. Still get this: (II) RADEON(0): Primary: Monitor -- TMDS Connector -- DVI-D DAC Type -- TVDAC/ExtDAC TMDS Type -- Internal DDC Type -- VGA_DDC (II) RADEON(0): Secondary: Monitor -- CRT Connector -- VGA DAC Type -- Primary TMDS Type -- External DDC Type -- DVI_DDC Should note here, there is no VGA connector on the card. There is a DVI connector (the one I am using) and the one that looks like DVI, but bigger, ADC I think?

Still no joy. Sorry for taking so long to get back to the list, I had to go out... -d -- darren kirby :: Part of the problem since 1976 :: "...the number of UNIX installations has grown to 10, with more expected..." - Dennis Ritchie and Ken Thompson, June 1972 -- gentoo-ppc-user@g.o mailing list
