Enabling dynamic clocks in the radeon driver might help improve that.

I lose the brightness buttons after a suspend/resume cycle. That
wouldn't be so annoying, but if I resume on battery, something tends to
blank the screen a little while after resume... and then it's a PITA to
turn it back on again :)

If it ever happened when I was at home (i.e. if it happened when there
was power too), I'd have investigated it more by now.

I played with MoL last April but never got the kernel bits to build.
Possibly a candidate for Extras if anyone has a patience to beat it into

Qemu is nice. Runs i386 acroread relatively sanely -- even runs i386
acroread7 if you install all the gtk/pango stuff in /usr/qemu-i386 for
it. RPM support for cross-arch stuff like that would be good; some
people need it for i386-on-ia64 anyway.
