      Aren't all DRM related patches supposed to be pulled into 2.6.33? Since the merge window is already closed, shouldn't it provide stable KMS by itself?

        nah, it's easier and faster to apply this patch http://files.netkas.org/drm_33_rc1.tar.bz2 to 2.6.32 , (fw for irq is in tarball too), just disable intel drm to compile all fine.

          I use (on ATI HD3650)(due to lack of experience, knowledge and time) pre-compiled stuff such as daily kernels, ppa:xorg-edgers and my (short) experience with 2.6.33-999-generic is better that the one with either 2.6.32-8.12 or 2.6.32-999 with ppa:xorg-edgers. The only "problem" is, when forcing KMS I get gdm screen totally garbled with vertical lines in alll colors and I (found that way, mybe there is better solution) skip to tty, run service gdm restart and viola ... everything works as prescribed. In 2.6.32-8.12, and earlier, KMS works out of the box and I do not have to use R600_rlc.bin, which is needed in case of 2.6.33-999.
          2.6.33-999 seems to have brought imporvement in overall speed, networking and feeling of smoothness. Networking involves many non-kernel stuff such as situation on ADSL and network globally so do not hold me responsible if that is not entirely true ... but, after some hours with 2.6.33-999 in "rush-hour" on network, I'm sort of convinced.

              Thank You for pointing me to drm-next (2.6.32-996) kernel. I've installed it and it works (I think well) with Lucid(vanilla)+ppa:xorg-edgers. Even though I have garbled (unreadable, like TV-test-signal (sort-of) screen at start of gdm and I have to visit tty and restart gdm to get it going. It is as fas as 2.6.33-999 is. I do get segmentation fault in libc.so message in all the kernels except in official 2.6.32-9.13 ... But, that is, probably, another story ...

              • Last night I hooked up Samsung 2343BW on DVI>DVI connection instead of 2343NW DVI>VGA>VGA connection on my PhenomX3 ATI HD 3650 512M. If I use 2.6.32-10 it is great! This 2.6.32-10 is one of the best kernels I've seen in some time. If I try 2.6.33-999(7-Jan-2010) it looses connection while entering GDM and I can restore it by turning it off on a rocker switch (on the back) (not on a touch switch on the front panel). It is the same with KMS and without it. Once that obstacle is solved everything is OK. It works nicely, also, with 2.6.32-9 but not nearly as good as with 2.6.32-10. The same problem is on either one of two DVI outputs. What could be the difference between .32 and .33 kernels that make this "problem"? I did not have this problem with analog connection. Nevertheless change from analog to digital was worth it.
