That was what I thought but I wanted to check. Sorry for insisting.

Now, the question is : is it possible to make MergedFB works on an
ibook ? I understand that UseFBDev should be set false, but I thought
it is needed to make LCD works (without it LCD panel has
synchros problem).

I can imagine that kernel radeonfb and X are competing for access to the
card. Is it true ? Should I use a different /dev/fb? device ? I imagine
that radeonfb is needed anyway.
