 I have tried loading the Radeon REDWOOD module (As stated in the wiki), but it seems that the kernel module is not compatible with Mobility Radeon HD 5650; the screen turns fully black as soon as the module gets loaded in the kernel, and it stays black.

 I am currently using the Xorg drivers, but they don't seem so smooth (Rough scrolling and window moving, etc...), so it would be really great for us to have support for our video cards (If possible), so we would be able to smoothly use Xorg and use graphic intense software.

Thank you!
