i think the problem is that you are using vga, radeonfb has no idea what is connected, a guess without being there to see. try appending the video size like video=radeonfb:1920x1200-24@60. you should be able to get the current mode from using open firmware frame buffer / sys/class/graphics/ matt -- gentoo-ppc-user@l.g.o mailing list
