Well, I have downloaded and applied the latest 14.0 patch/update last night. Now my intel graphics 3000 laptop locks up few minutes after logged in (kde, xfce, *box WM). I saw a comment on ChangeLog about the intel graphics revert but I'm not pretty sure if I got the reverted version (downloaded 3 days ago or so).
Looks like I have to downgrade to 14.0's original kernel or perhaps try again and verify if I've applied the latest patch kernel.
AFAIK, this is not a problem with the kernel, it is a problem with AMD's driver. Solution is to use an older driver (13.1 should work) or the FOSS radeon driver.
Alternatively you use the vga= option in your liloconfig to set your screen to a standard resolution. I have tried that, but it leaves me with a garbled screen after shutting down X. At least keyboard input works, so that I am able to start X again.
