Yes. I'm using the videoboot-2.6x.patch (this patch contain also the xf86emu
from www.scitechsoft.com). With this pach the radeon card work properly with
2.6.12 kernel version. On the 2.6.27 kernel the "videoboot" fetch the bios
from the video card and start them in the xf86emu.
Can I initialize the video card in uboot too?

I dont know what exactly happens when the xf86emu runs the video bios and i
have no idea how can i verify that the card was properly initialized.
