Subject: [gentoo-user] x11-drivers/ati-drivers and latest kernel (stable)

Has anybody had any luck with x11-drivers/ati-drivers and the latest
stable kernel gentoo-sources-2.6.15-r1?

I have been using the latest stable ati-drivers (8.14.13-r3) with
gentoo-sources-2.6.12-r10 for a few months and it has been absolutely
stable. Now a hal update seems to need at least 2.6.13, so I emerged and
built 2.6.15-r1, and rebuilt all modules for it. Well, ati-drivers
throws a kernel stack dump when X11 starts, so I guess there's some kind
of incompatibility.

Then I emerged the latest ~x86 ati-drivers (8.21.7), which seems to work
at first sight, but hangs when I logout. Actually, kdm starts the first
time, but hangs after the logout. I am still able to login by ssh,
though. The symptoms are pretty similar to a few bugs on b.g.o not yet

Any insights would be greatly appreciated (or working combinations of
kernel and driver versions).
