Description

This test case tests whether basic X initialization is successful with the radeon driver.

Setup

  1. Ensure the 'nomodeset' and 'radeon.modeset=0' kernel parameters are not set in your bootloader configuration
    • You can see your current kernel options by running cat /proc/cmdline
  2. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a valid file that uses the radeon driver
  3. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
  4. If using a live image to test, ignore the above steps and simply boot the system from the live image with default options

How to test

  1. Observe whether the system successfully reaches the graphical login screen

Expected Results

  1. The system should boot successfully to the normal graphical login screen, at the optimal resolution for your monitor, with no graphical artifacts (missing cursor, wrong colors etc)
