I have a dual G4-mdd with a r9000 and I'm using
Linux Jay 2.4.22-pre6 #4 SMP sab lug 19 08:29:11 UTC 2003 ppc unknown

Problem #1: Radeonfb sets a video mode that isn't supported by my LCD
monitor. I have to blindly type "/usr/sbin/fbset -a 1280x1024-60 -depth 16"
at the root console every time (*if* it boots, because I make the box crash
quite often :( ). Is there a boot option to set the right video mode ?

Problem #2: I've managed only to use X in fbdev mode at 16bits. No way to
use the radeon driver.  Any hint ?
