I switced over to a Radeon 7000, and I am getting similar results with
paletter, plus screen corruption. One interesting thing is the mouse

Hmm, weird, the radeon driver should really handle this. Is it still an
issue though? (you didn't mention this in your other post :)
I forgot to mention it, but it still happens :)
Here is my table of results:
640x480 8 - Mouse ok, Palette ok
640x480 16 - Mouse Chopped (as above), Inverted/"Rainbow" palette
640x480 24 - Block mouse, Yellow palette
800x600 8 - Mouse ok, Palette ok
800x600 16 - Mouse Chopped, Inverted/"Rainbow" palette
800x600 24 - Block mouse, Yellow palette
1024x768 8 - Mouse ok, Palette ok.
1024x768 16 - Block mouse, Inverted/"Rainbow" palette
1024x768 24 - Block mouse, Yellow palette
Block mouse means that the mouse pointer is actually a largish block,
mostly white. No resemblance to a mouse pointer. Using software mouse
pointer tends to fix this.
The Radeon FB Driver works for the console, for X the screen goes blank
(and monitor goes into power saving mode), I can switch to the console
(Alt-Ctrl-1), but going back to X on tty7, the monitor shuts down again.
Does X use a mode that the monitor should handle?
Yes the mode is within my monitors limits, I think this is related to
the fact that if I change video mode with radeonfb, the screen goes to
sleep until I "re-awaken" it by flicking to a different tty, then back
It would be great if you could test my packages from
deb http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-trunk/ ./
and see if they make any difference.
I'll do that now..
