Hi all,
I've a TiBook 15' 1GHz SuperDrive.

For me it is the same story.
    - I'm able to awake from sleep only when DRI is off. No matter if I 
have "DRIReinit"                 option on or off
        - I don't have any problems in console mode, everything seem to 
work fine.
            - I don't have the sleep-inX-only-once, when dri is off I can 
go to sleep and awake safely           more than once.

            Moreover, has one of you tried to watch DVDs with this 
ati-kernel-patch on? I don't know if I made some mistake but on the 
streaming is extremely slow. It's not fluid at all. I use xine and with 
the old kernel I used to have (ben5) the streaming was excellent. There's 
really a big difference.

Below you find /proc/cpuinfo and lspci:

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo

Do you see that "Unknown device 4c66 "? What does it mean?
