Many thanks !

I did as you suggested. Booting the default image failed with
what looked like a very long backtrace and froze the machine.

But booting fallback worked, and after an mkinitcpio also the
default worked.

Result: rock-stable audio, and the display is a fast as it needs
to be.

Again many thanks, finally I can start using this system.

BTW, what is the official advantage of KMS ? Having RL 3
and ttys that do not depend on a video driver seems like
a good thing (TM) to me.



O tu, che porte, correndo si ?
E guerra e morte !
