Sorry, a bit new to ATI/AMD stuff (i owned a beloved AthlonXP+Radeon-very-old and radeon drv): how to disable KMS?
I would also look at xorg's log ("/var/log/Xorg.0.log") for any clue.
Yep... I can attach the Xorg log as it is now: radeon drv and seems ok, but i feel it very poor on 3D (at less with xbmc, however throwed away); I will reinstall frglx and tell you, actually with radeon i can switch between consoles, and that's what i want
...finding my way on mythtv... so not too much time to reproduce this bug, tomorrow i'll be ok to post the xorg log;
Thanks very much.
