As far as I know, everything that uses the ati driver supports KMS now, modulo bugs

I must just be unlucky, then. It seems all of my ATI cards are among those with bugs (which yes, have all been reported). I have still yet to find an ATI card with working KMS :-(

Are yours all ATI Mobility cards? They do seem to be more iffy than mainstream desktop cards, perhaps because every laptop vendor hooks the things up differently.

(I've got a 4870, FWIW.)

The one for the machine I'm on at the moment is 509031, and seems to already be assigned to you. I have to boot with nomodeset in order to get a usable display.
