Ok, the card is well recognized and supported, but X dies with a signal 7, i
don't know out of the box what this is. This is most definitively an X bug
thouhg, so please fill a bug report against xserver-xfree86, including
/var/log/XFree86.0.log, /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, and the other file i don't
remember that Branden asks for. maybe lspci and lspci -n output will be
helpfull too, i don't know.
