> I suspect the Radeon 3000 is r600. That is too new. Radeonfb is dying, work
hasnt been done on it since r300 or 400. To get it working youll need either
a generic driver like vesafb or uvesafb or ideally the new modesetting
radeon driver. It is a dual purpose fb and drm driver which you load with
modprobe radeon modeset=1. The only problem is, its slowly being worked into
the kernel. Lookup the custom kernel, drm rawhide.
