This looks suspiciously like what happens on my Radeon 8500 LE: the DVI
connector simply doesn't work with fglrx, but in my case the monitor is
not even detected (the monitor, connector and TMDS type all say "none").
I'm sure it's not a hardware problem, because the DVI connector works

form, someone replied and I convinced him that he should forward it to
the Linux team if possible, but I never got an answer.
