I haven't tried that driver if it wasn't in the previous December
Alpha. The current newest 12/15 Alpha installed fine, as did the
initial Alpha and 7.2 release.

There were no visible errors, just complete loss of all system
function (numlock, scroll lock, screen, etc). I had to hard-shutdown
the machine. When I restarted it into emergency mode, it ran fsck then
rebooted. It did the same in 'Vesa' mode. I ended up just going to the
12/15 Alpha, which installed fine except for the errors I already sent
