It's radeon and radeonfb works with 2.6.2-rc3-ben1.

I didn't compiled offb because 2.6.2-rc3-ben1 didn't want to load
radeonfb if offb was compiled in (and there isn't module option for offb
iirc), so it freezes also with video=ofonly. I can try it when at home
tonight, but i'm quite sure it's radeonfb problem because i had many
trouble of this kind with previously versions of the kernel, mostly
because of hard fixed hfreq :


I saw many files changed in drivers/video/aty/ between the 2 versions of
the kernel, then i try to downgrade this part by copying just to try but
compilation fails.
