A question if anyone 'in the know' is still looking @ this thread:

RadeonVF + RO6 is a 'no-go' from everything I've read. As I understand it this is becuase of a lack of Radeon drivers in RO6 - shame, I've finally had a chance to try out RO6 & rather like it but not enough to ditch my VF (especially as I'm seriously considering taking JK up on his upgrade)...

...Now, my understanding is that JK's drivers aren't available as a 'default' because RO6 is soft-loaded so they get 'kicked-out' when the OS loads. Would one potential 'fix' be to soft-load JK's drivers (modules) early in !Boot after RO6 has started?

Or is it a case of the RO6 GFX sub-system being too differnt for the 'standard' RadeonVF driver to work even if present..?

My thanks to any who can shed light on this - I'd like both but the VF is more important to me.
