With the patch i am seeing VT switching problems also, without i don't
I boot in text mode, than do a telinit 5, that works.
Than i do a ctrl-alt-f1 and i come back to text mode, but when i want to
switch back to X the display stays black. Altough ctrl-alt-del still
worked, so it was not a hard hang.
This is with an;
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS480 [Radeon
Xpress 200G Series]
Also my memory size is still detected wrong, i got the CVS version that
has the IGP = True fix in it. But my 128 UM still shows up as
(II) RADEON(0): Primary V_BIOS segment is: 0xc000
(--) RADEON(0): Chipset: "ATI Radeon XPRESS 200 5954 (PCIE)" (ChipID = 0x5954)
(--) RADEON(0): Linear framebuffer at 0xc0000000
(--) RADEON(0): VideoRAM: 31744 kByte (64 bit DDR SDRAM)
