What's the problem that you were having with the radeonfb driver?
While trying to include the radeonfb driver (ie CONFIG_FB_RADEON=y) I
lost the console at boot time, it stay definitevely black.
it has been corrected by BenH few times ago
I've got a problem with radeonfb whereby, if I change resolution with
"fbset", the screen will go blank (monitor enters power saving mode),
and the remedy is to press Alt-F2 (or whatever) to change tty, and then
to change back again.
If I run X with fbdev, X will start fine, but the screen will again go
blank and the monitor shuts down. Remedy doesn't work though, and if I
press Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to kill X it will come back to life (the screen).
Finally, if I am not using radeonfb, and am using plain VGA console, and
I load X with radeon driver, then exit X, the screen goes blank (monitor
enter power saving mode) and nothing I do will bring it back.
My collegaue has no problems with radeonfb on similar hardware, except
he is using a Radeon qe, and I am using a newer Radeon 7000 VE.
Maybe I don't have BenH's fix in my kernel, would you be able to point
me to it?
