Hi list,

I have problems with the radeonfb on 2.6.6 and also the older 2.6er releases.

the source is a vanilla kernel only patched with the hostap driver for wlan.

distribution: debian sid

the dmesg output:

Linux version 2.6.6-icecrash-blade (sven@blade) (gcc-Version 3.3.3 20040125 (prerelease) (Debian)) #1 Sat May 15 22:52:05 CEST 2004
