Hi all,

I've just upgraded to my gentoo x11-overlay, all git master. Plus kernel Basically things work (modulo minor display corruption),
thunderbird feels nice for the first time ever.

I enabled KMS in-kernel, and it has nice things to say:

Linux agpgart interface v0.103
agpgart: Detected NVIDIA nForce2 chipset
agpgart-nvidia 0000:00:00.0: AGP aperture is 64M @ 0xf8000000
[drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
[drm] radeon default to kernel modesetting.
[drm] radeon kernel modesetting enabled.

today's xorg has another opinion:

(II) Primary Device is: PCI 01 at 00:00:0
(II) [KMS] drm report modesetting isn't supported.
