This is becoming a problem for many people and distros now that KMS is
On Linux, if CONFIG_DRM_RADEON_KMS is not enabled, X loads (through the DRI
interface I suppose) radeon.ko correctly but X initialization fails as pointed
out 3 years ago by Brice Goglin.

Otoh, forcing CONFIG_DRM_RADEON_KMS=y in distributed kernels makes fglrx users'
life really hard. So, what are distributors supposed to do in your opinion? Do
we really have to consider fglrx and radeon to be mutually exclusive at package
manager level? That would be suboptimal as well.
