archck + ati-fglrx + xorg, machine freezes

I'm using kernel26archck 2.6.15.archck7-3, ati-fglrx-archck 8.22.5-2, and xorg 11R7.0-1.

When I start X and use any window manager, the machine hangs and acts weirdly.  I try to maximize a terminal window, the machine freezes.  It seems as though if I dhcp first I can ssh into the machine remotely, but if I kill X the machine hangs.

Any clues why this would happen?  This does *not* happen with the normal arch kernel with ati fglrx installed.

I think it could be something to do with a radeon fb being used during boot even though I told it to use the vesafb.

Ok, looks related to a change i made last week, I might revert it. Expect a new package soon.

Any work arounds?  I don't mind adding another kernel option or something if I need to if the change helps somebody else.

Either way, thanks smile
