You may need an xorg.conf file to make the system load the radeon driver. Udev is failing and not working out what refresh rates the system can do (probably a cheap screen. You can override this with:

gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

There are LOTS of example files you can use but you will be wrestling with this file (Which is blank by default) until you get a good display. If you turn up blank I can have a go at formulating one.

hello
good answer
i entered
gksudo...
in the terminal but for
sudo lshw...
i read the same parameters
can i look for these files in interent?

yes it will, until you modify /etc/X11/xorg.conf

rodi (info-rodrigo-del-solar) said : #6

howto modify?
and i looked for /etc/X11/
no xorg.conf found
do you formulate me one?

There isn't one by default. If one exists it will be used. Did you find any examples online?

Can you help with this problem?
