I'm using radeonfb on an IBM Thinkpad, Ati Radeon M9
After booting it looks like the radeonfb doesn't clear or reset the screen
(see )
The area below the tux is cleared when text scrolls along.
relevant dmesg output:
radeonfb: Invalid ROM signature 0 should be 0xaa55
radeonfb: Retreived PLL infos from BIOS
radeonfb: Reference=27.00 MHz (RefDiv=12) Memory=252.00 Mhz, System=200.00 MHz
Non-DDC laptop panel detected
radeonfb: Monitor 1 type LCD found
radeonfb: Monitor 2 type no found
radeonfb: panel ID string: SXGA+ Single (85MHz)
radeonfb: detected LVDS panel size from BIOS: 1400x1050
radeondb: BIOS provided dividers will be used
radeonfb: Power Management enabled for Mobility chipsets
radeonfb: ATI Radeon Lf DDR SGRAM 64 MB

I'm using 2.6.5-mm6.
