However I have trouble with the screen. I'm using the mach64 driver with 1280x1024 mode and 24 bits depth, and whenever I try to switch to console (with atyfb @ 1024x768) all I get is a balck screen and the monitor complaining with out of sync... Also when terminating my X session, exiting fluxbox (I use startx to get into X), I get the same thing, so I never can get back to console.
Your best bet is to file a bug report if one hasn't already been opened.
ATI Radeon catalyst driver can't change the resolution it goes always back to 1024x768 founds getting ugly.
This doesn't sound at all like the OP's problem. Similar to the above, you should file a bug report--a separate bug report in this case.
For what it's worth, I too use the catalyst driver (ATI X1400) and have no problems whatsoever with the latest Xorg and my resolution of 1680x1050. It may very well be card-dependant so providing those little details in the report could help.
