1024x768 character resolution!?


I'm trying to compile the 2.6.14.3 kernel for my friend. His computer runs a radeon 7000. Although I have selected as many ATI Radeon options as I can think of, the console buffer is very messed up. First when the computer is started the screen is squeezed and flickers. After X Windows is ran and shutdown, there are like 8 thumbnail sized monitors at the top of the screen. I can still type although one character per pixel is very hard to read. Are there any drivers that work well with this card? The video works fine with the 2.4.29 kernel that came with Slackware 10.1. I would post the .config file, but it is too long. We will appreciate any help, thanks.

Forgive me for my poor English.
But would you mind be verbose about what was your problem?
The console display incorrectly or X display incorrectly ?

X works perfectly, no modification necessary. The console does not work correctly. The image is sqeezed and flickers after the computer boots up. When X Windows is started, the monitor returns to normal operation. When I go back to the console, it does not return to the sqeezed and flickering mode it was in before, but displays 8 thumbnail sized pictures of the image that would normally be put over the entire screen! The images are so tiny that one pixel is one character hence the title. Has anyone here had a problem simular to this?

I don't think the problem come from the kernel, it may come from bash configuration

Well, the 2.4.29 kernel works fine on that computer. Is there any way to find out what settings it is using?
