Ok, except ati radeon, the _intel_ (uxa, not sna) and _nouveau_ now both work from live git... I removed from kernel CONFIG_USB_OTG, but else I just installed from repositories, the X server et al.

From dmesg on *radeon*, the kernel "panics" and there is a weird error message from radeon module that there it may be not enough bandwith?!?!
I let a default "Factory" layout from "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" option and didn't specify "-dpi 100" anylonger.

But actually <radeon> was the only one "working" before: it started X, with sources from git.
