Details

An updated xorg-x11-drv-ati package that fixes one bug is now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The xorg-x11-drv-ati package provides a driver for ATI cards for the X.Org
implementation of the X Window System.

This updated xorg-x11-drv-ati package fixes the following bug:

* Installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux did not successfully complete on HP
Workstation Z400, Z600 and Z800 workstations which also used ATI FirePro V5700
or V7750 graphics cards. Due to the X server not supporting DisplayPort, the
screen went black after the media check and users were therefore not able to
interact with the installation. This problem has been fixed and Red Hat
Enterprise Linux can now be successfully graphically installed using
DisplayPort. (BZ#568846)

Users of xorg-x11-drv-ati are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves this bug.
