new radeon firmware for 3.11.0-rcX
Just a heads-up, since many Alpha users have Radeon cards... If you

kernels, you probably want to grab an up-to-date snapshot of at *least*

The kernel firmware repository is available at
On my machine, the firmware files I needed that were missing were noted in
the "dmesg" output. If you fail to supply any missing files and start
the X server, that will probably work ok: watch for a blank screen and
an inoperative keyboard on exit, though :-). (You *do* have "sshd"
enabled for these kinds of contingencies, yes?)
