I have a Compaq Armada M700 with ATI Mobility on it and I had the same
problems with running framebuffer on the console and X window (using
ati2 module). This went away however, when I switched into version

I also tried to get kernel's ati framebuffer (for the console) to work,
but no success. I couldn't figure out why it's not working; all I was 
getting was black screen ...Right now I'm using vesa in 1024x786, not without the
glitches but generally it works all right.
