Xorg ATI Rage-Mobility Bug (work around)

FYI - there is a work around for this. The vesa driver works okay. I just ran
xorgconfig and added Mode and DefaultDepth statements. The driver seems kind of
funky in that the screen is scrambled for a second or so and then seems to work

Is there a user oriented mailing list for Xorg? I am happy to test a fix for the
ati driver. Is there a end-user mailing list for Xorg? I also have some
questions about the driver option and modeline calculation. Any ideas where
these questions can be asked would be greatly appreciated.

I did not in the end try the development snapshot in XFree86 since using XFree86
seems to then require that all X applications be installed as ports. I figure I
might have KDE done by Christmas :)
