    What about r300s/400s? If I understand phoronix's article correctly it's only enabled for 500+ series by default?

    so I want to try KMS and Plymouth.

    R600 the code is there, the PCI IDs are not, I'll probably enable them in rawhide post-F10, it was just a matter of bad timing.

    The vga=0x318 is not necessary correct for vesafb. That one doesn't work on my system, for example. I can use 0x31A or any of a number of others.

    The article also says that R600 works with KMS, but that doesn't seem to be the case yet (for stock Fedora/Rawhide, anyways). As stated on the Open Source AMD/ATI boards, that still requires building your own DRM and releated bits from the modesetting-gem branch of mesa/drm.

    KMS in Rawhide definitely isn't working on R600 on my machine without using vesafb, anyways.

    Yeah, and don't forget to turn display ON, only when you feel (won't even guess by what receptor) that kernel is loaded ;-)

    "Having Plymouth will not lead Linux to having a greater market-share"

    NEVER underestimate the value of SHINY.

    A lot of stuff still is buggy with KMS, and I think they also need to have a common api they can safely freeze, before they include it in the kerenel.

    The idea here is to keep from introducing too many changes that have the potential to break things at the same time. All the same, I would like to find some patches which could add KMS to 2.6.28 so I can set it up myself

    So, it's useful and wanted feature, and there is a working code. Why it was denied for inclusion into 2.6.28, then?.. :-(

    2.6.27. They just add in the KMS patches, etc.
