as you can see, xfree stops here:
(II) fglrx(0): [DRI] installation complete
that seems to be the point where xfree freezes (99% cpu usage, just shows a
black screen - and nothing more).
the next line "(II) fglrx(0): Direct rendering enabled" will never be printed
out to the log with 1024mb of ram. i've no idea what's going one here?!?
That's the point where the driver tries to start the card's bus
mastering engine, apparently something goes wrong with that.

the only differences except the "hangup point" from both logs are these
addresses. might that be useful for troubleshooting?
No, these aren't expected to be constant.
kernel .config: http://fanti.staff.spin.de/config-188.8.131.52
Anything interesting in the kernel output? FWIW, on the PCIe machine
with 1 GB RAM here, HIGHMEM64G is enabled but HIGHMEM4G disabled, but
that's with an RHEL 2.4 kernel, so I'm not sure it's relevant.
