Ok, that tells me:
$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.32-5-686 (Debian 2.6.32-27) (maks at debian.org) (gcc
version 4.3.5 (Debian 4.3.5-4) ) #1 SMP Sat Oct 30 22:47:19 UTC 2010
But then, the problem is still there... Seems to be a different problem
related with the Radeon registers then as it's fixed by the radeontool
workaround described above.
$ sudo radeontool regset DAC_MACRO_CNTL 0x00000808
OLD: DAC_MACRO_CNTL (0d04) 0x00000000 (0)
NEW: DAC_MACRO_CNTL (0d04) 0x00000808 (2056)
