Which works fine with kms ;-)

You didn't stop kms, you disabled radeonfb.

append="root=/dev/mapper/hda4_crypt video=radeonfb:off radeon.agpmode=1"

should be good start to get a kms system with 3-D support.

This is the kms framebuffer not radeonfb.

Do you need that? Why?

To disable kms you have to do that in
/etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf by stting "options radeon modeset=0"
The corresponding yaboot append should be
append="root=/dev/mapper/hda4_crypt" then.


  The path to source is always uphill!
