That's not true. It works nicely on my laptop (though I don't get
the native 1280x800 resolution).

Then that's a bug, which is a completely different thing. Could you
check that the output of vga=ask and typing scan at the boot prompt is
the same between 2.6.24 and 2.6.25/26 ?

Samuel, who may want to try 2.6.24 to get his native resolution.
