Bug#301357: install: does not list 'radeon' as available video card driver



reassign 301357 xfree86
retitle 301357 Should list 'radeon' in the list of available drivers when configuring the package
thanks

This problem seems to pertain to the xfree86 packages rather than the
installer, I think (X people, please feel free to correct me if I'm
completely wrong....this could be xdebconfigurator or whatever else).

Hence reassigning.
