    drm-next - standard kernels from kernel:head
    ohhh.... good work Pontostroy;-) but... after booting, kernel can't load firmware - radeon_uvd: Can't load firmware "radeon/RV710_uvd.bin" .
    However i'm downloaded firmware then puted it in /lib/firmate/radeon and /lib/firmware/3.9.0-rc5-0-vanilla/radeon/. what am I doing wrong?

    It worked perfectly! 1080p video, High def, with 30% CPU.
    Normally the show starts to jitter after about 10 minutes of playback, but this worked beautifully!

    Now to upgrade my MediaPC without breaking it. Thankyou for do these builds.
    The video card is an onboard
    01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RS880 [Radeon HD 4250]
