Does this need adding to /etc/make.conf?
Yes. *Everyone who uses an AMD card should have "radeon" in VIDEO_CARDS,
followed by either "r300" or "r600". *Of course only when we're taking
about the X.Org drivers. *If you're going to use the Catalyst
proprietary drivers, you should put "fglrx" in VIDEO_CARDS.
OK, I've added it and I'm remerging mesa to see what difference it makes.
If mesa doesn't get automatically rebuilt (changing VIDEO_CARDS counts as a USE flags change, so "emerge -uDN world" will pick it up), then that means you're using a version of mesa that doesn't recognize "r600".
I'm on mesa-9999 (one of the very few live ebuilds I use). *Now that I checked this, it's the only version to recognize "r300" and "r600" in VIDEO_CARDS. *However, that also means that future release versions of mesa will also recognize them (the live ebuilds are always a precursor of things to come.) *So adding "r300" or "r600" now doesn't hurt and will ensure you don't forget to do so later when mesa 7.12 (or 8.0?) comes out.

I set my screen size to 1280x1024 in my xorg.conf
This worked fine up thru Fedora 11 (I dont currently have running copies
of F12 or F13 to test it there) but it DOES NOT WORK in Fedora14.
In Fedora14 I get 1024x768 with or without the xorg.conf.
Now my actual screen is behind a KVM so that is part of the problem, if I
connect the monitor directly to the computer everything works correctly
and I get a screen size of 1280x1024,
So my question.
Is there some way to FORCE X11 to run at 1280x1024 in Fedora14, independent
of any tests it may make of the screen?
Having something to override this (incorrect) behavior would be REALLY helpful.
I keep several old versions of Fedora around for testing of some software,
so PLEASE dont tell me to just move to the most recent release.
Actually I was going to tell you that very thing, you should be able to do what
you want by installing a better KVM.
As JD points out, you may be able to force things with xrandr. Really like the
projection trick in that one.
