There have been some recent improvements from me when running with
KMS enabled.

As the maintainer of the games spin not having working graphics is a real
pain. Because my monitors don't do EDID correctly, graphics hasn't worked
right for a long time.  Now I get 800x600 by default and 3d works enough
on my ati 9200 that I can do some testing with a real games spin build.
(I use xorg.conf files and had been using nomodeset to make my systems
usable, but those are in the normal games spin.) Also testing glest
(which I recently started maintaining) is hard with 3d not working
very well.
