I was reading on your bug report that you can get the radeon card to
function with an older kernel. I have not tried that, but I did try an
older version of X, before the CVS version. This crashed badly, just as
with the CVS version of X
Your comment from the bug report.
only fixes are to use kernel <= .524 (no good as there's no CD-Rom support,
remove rhgb from kernel args (no problem, but Red Hat might not like that!
This might be related to trying to create /dev/radeon after the /dev
nodes were setup. If the older kernel works with this issue to allow X,
then maybe those programs related to /dev can work on a fix.
