@SailorMH
Please test them with your CF cards.

@Allan (Ace)
Please test them with your two installed graphics cards and with your Logitech wireless USB mouse. Can you switch with CTRL-ALT-F1 (F2, F3, F4 etc) to another terminal after booting with the xorg.conf?

@Mechanic
Please test them with your JMB363 card.

@Darren
Could you please submit your new pcmcia patch to the kernel developers?

Thanks,

Hi Christian
Apologies as I haven't had much time of late but finally got round to some testing of RC1.

RC1 Boots to Radeon SI card but will not run LightDM. I can however get to terminals using the F keys. I haven't tried using the xorg.conf as yet will do this weekend. Logitech mouse works fine.

RC1-vgaard Boots to Firepro and LightDM as normal, Logitech mouse works fine.

RC1-ll Boots to Firepro and LightDM, Logitech mouse works fine.

I appreciate all the hard work you put in for us all.

Regards
