As I already told you privately, there's nothing I can do without more
informations on the panic. The panic/Oops log, or whatever is printed
by xmon if you have it enabled would be a good first step. Also, what
kind of machine is it ? Is there any special message displayed by
the driver before it dies ? etc...

Right now, you just say "it doesn't work", not much we can do about it...
