2. Dailymotion videos are terribly slow -- look like a slideshow (2fps?)
Whole system slows down to a crawl when playing video (HTML5 tag, not flash), even typing in terminal feels like '97 over ssh.

3. Anaconda/First boot -- sees the screen size as if it was total of two displays but uses only one of them (b -- see hardware above), hence the some information and buttons are invisible (displayed off screen). I can provide photos of what it looks like.

4. KDE: Display settings: change display resolution works incorrectly -- canĀ“t move screen position vs. the other screen. I changed screen (a) from 1280x1024 -> 1600x1200 and got screen overlap -- whatever is displayed in the middle, is showing up "partial clone" on both screens.

5. KDE: Colors are all over the place -- parts of UI change colors as they please: to purple, green, blue, black, etc. without reason. Random "destruction" patterns show up on UI elements.

For all of the above, can you try a) updating to kernel 96 or 97 from
Rawhide or Koji, and b) booting with nomodeset parameter, and see how
those affect them?
kernel-PAE- did not really help much.
nomodeset helps a lot with colour artifacts in KDE (all gone, 5. is shot down), performance is great (better than without nomodeset), also when playing Dailymotion videos (2. shot as well).
I haven't yet tested Anaconda issue (3.).
KDE Display settings is simply missing functionality (can't move screen positions, so 4. is still an issue).

8. glxgears works but with horizontal lines of random rubbish. I havent tried mesa-dri-drivers-experimental yet...

Without mesa-dri-drivers-experimental you're not getting any hardware
3D. But it's not expected to work great on r700 yet anyway.

The mesa-dri-drivers-experimental makes 3D work quite well!

- glxgears -- no more artifacts
- desktop effects in KWin work (most of them, some can't be enabled) but with nomodeset desktop effects don't work anymore
- OpenGL screensavers work without artifacts

9. Pulseaudio generally works -- I'm happy that digital optical out works! Pavucontrol (not installed by default?) crashes when I choose "Pulseaudio server" in KDE multimedia settings.

Don't know about KDE, but pavucontrol is no longer installed by default
because gnome-volume-control should cover what's needed. KDE still
doesn't have a real great PA mixer AFAIK.
I installed pavucontrol and so far it does the job :-)

I found two other issues.

10. Ethernet network interface (cable) doesn't get up during boot even though it's configured as not managed by NM. I have to bring it up manually.
   This network interface doesn't start on boot:

# 3Com Corporation 3c905B 100BaseTX [Cyclone]

11. Cheese uses 150% CPU when recording a movie from webcam! Recorded video is choppy, like 1-2 fps... Monitoring camera view works smoothly, it only happens when recording.
