In all the kernels I've tried (up to 2.6.30-rc2), I get issues with KMS:

I boot with 'modeset=1 i915=1', console login is okay and 'modprobe i915
modeset=1' seems to work - the console resolution changes (very small
1920x1200).

When I do 'init 5' kdm loads (and display the logon screen) but after
entering my username/password it hangs at the KDE splash-screen (the
last icon, so some progress must have been made). Caps lock then won't
even work, but emergency sync seemed to do the trick.

/var/log/warnings:

So while I'd love to use KMS, I have never been able to get X up using it.

Regards,
Niel
