Well, pmud isn't clear. Actually, it should work, though I had reports
of some users of this machine telling me it tends to lockup on wakeup,
I'm investigating.

No. You have a Radeon M6 chip, the same chip I have in my rev. 2 tipb,
and currently, the DRI trunk driver doesn't work on it. (I have the
exact same symptoms here). Hopefully, Michel will have that fixed

Didn't have that problem, weird. I'd suggest rsync'ing again, and
making sure you do a complete fresh build (save your .config,
make distclean, restore your .config, make oldconfig, then make
dep, make and make modules)

Yah, OS X is nasty, I'm not sure what's up exacty with it. We used to
have no problem with OS 9 as OS 9 stored the date as local time in the
RTC. It seems OS X is behaving differently though we didn't yet figure
out how exactly yet.
