xconfig didn't pick it out .... just because it's ATI doesn't mean it 
supports this new gfx set. I looked on X.org, & this GPU (Kabini [Radeon 
HD 8280 / R3 Series]) isn't even mentioned, & the next 2 under it are 
listed as unsupported or partially supported .... No biggie, I expected 
that, & would guess they'll get on that soon ....
