kernel-2.6.38-1.mga1 is now submitted to the buildsystem and will soon
be on a mirror close to you...
It comes with several nice improvements for hardware, and several new
interesting features, so have fun testing...
Now atleast fglrx does not support this kernel (and not the x11-server
1.10), so you need to use the free driver
Now, if you want full performance from the free driver, make sure you
have radeon-rlc-firmware and kernel-firmware-extra installed.
Then add the line:
and the line:
options radeon modeset=1
you also might need to remove any vga= and splash= from kernel boot
Work is on the way to fix this better hopefully for Mageia 1 final
