Apparently it doesn't work out-of-the-box for my old ati card.

Also, quoting from

Disabling Radeon KMS 

"Kernel Mode Setting (KMS) for the ATI Radeon RV280 chip is not ready for 
primetime yet so i decided to disable KMS and revert to User Mode Setting 
(UMS) for now. KMS is the future but it is too immature on the Radeon 
hardware. . . "
