eeePC 1015b issues with initializing radeon and ethernet lockup
1. I'm facing problem with Debian on my 1015b-c50, if I try to run newer
kernel 3.0.* from repository it start to boot and after following message:
r600_cp: Failed to load firmware "radeon/PALM_pfp.bin"
[drm:evergreen_startup] *ERROR* Failed to load firmware!
radeon 0000:00:01.0: disabling GPU acceleration

working cursor which represented as square represented drawn as colorful
You can see how screen looks on following photo:

2. The other problem is if I try to install or run "Squeeze", my
ethernet card lockups and after some time whole system hang up, the only
way to reboot is power key. It's happen with stable version of
installer(installed OS have same problem), in same time Wifi works
without issues. I also don't have problems if using testing images for
What could cause such behavior?
