    Ok. I got the code (it is mvista, not mivsta...). My card is
    recognized without modifications:

    and then


    hStart = 664, hEnd = 760, hTotal = 800
    vStart = 491, vEnd = 493, vTotal = 525
    h_total_disp = 0x4f0063 hsync_strt_wid = 0x8c02a2
    v_total_disp = 0x1df020c vsync_strt_wid = 0x8201ea
    pixclock = 39721
    freq = 2517
    post div = 0x8
    fb_div = 0x59
    ppll_div_3 = 0x30059
    lvds_gen_cntl: 08000008
    Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 80x30


    Then, when changing to 1280x1024, with command

    /usr/sbin/fbset -depth 32 1280x1024-60

    the actual console changes correctly, but when switching to other VCs,
    the monitor again complains saying it gets bad frequencies: 103.1 kHz
    horizontal and 197.8 Hz vertical.

    If I blindly login, and run the appropriate fbset command, the
    terminal works OK. I made this small script:

    stty cols 160 rows 64
    /usr/sbin/fbset -depth 32 1280x1024-60
    consolechars -m iso15 -f iso15graf-16

    and gave it a very short name. This way, once the terminal is set, I
    can see what I type. I still have to logout and login again because
    bash does not change its idea of the number of columns with
    stty... So, quite uncomfortable but working ok.

    Obviously, if I were able to set the default mode to 1280x1024, things
    would be sunny.
    seems not to produce any visible effect. What is the current proper
    way to initialize radeonfb from LILO?

    And on a similar topic, could you write a couple of examples about how
    to use the parameters included in radeon_base.c? I am thinking
    especially of the "mirror" and "monitor_layout" parameters, that I
    believe would allow me to use the two or three video outputs of the
    card independently. I currently read

    0 ATI Radeon Yd

    in /proc/fb. I should read two or three lines there, I believe...
