I was able to start testing my rv280 based ATI 9200 card this morning
and I was able to do stuff in tremulous, so it looks like 3d is working
again. For F11 I had needed to use no modeset which broke 3d.

I still have some more testing to do and I need to set up at least one
modeline since modeline detection doesn't work for me (probably because
my monitor doesn't do EDID correctly or at all).

So it might be worth you trying out F12. Note that I used a very recent
kernel and ati driver which might not have been tagged for the beta.
This seemed to be an improvement over my first reboot after going to
F12 which had stuff a day or so older.

I am going to be very happy if this preliminary result bears out under
further testing.
