The funny thing is, it works with VESA VGA graphics support.
Shouldn't ATI Radeon display support be used? It didn't work anyway.
Is there an advantage of using ATI Radeon display support over VESA VGA graphics support?
Not really. In fact, AFAIK the radeonfb driver is more trouble than its worth. I use VESA with my radeon 9800 pro for framebuffer (mainly bootsplash stuff) and it works good.
If ATI Radeon display support is able to work (framebuffer), does it have any conflict with ATI fglrx?
Not at all. The ATI fglrx drivers only work under X, and don't affect the framebuffer, so you won't have problems.
