Well, it does not work for me, this is from Xorg log:

[   506.701] (--) controlling tty is VT number 3, auto-enabling KeepTty
[   506.701] (II) [KMS] drm report modesetting isn't supported.
[   506.701] (EE) Screen 0 deleted because of no matching config section.
[   506.701] (II) UnloadModule: "radeon"
[   506.701] (EE) Device(s) detected, but none match those in the config file.
[   506.701] (EE)
Fatal server error:
[   506.701] (EE) no screens found(EE)

This is still a 2nd problem I am dealing on Parabola. There is one
primary problem with grub, everytime I boot, sysetm will just s top
after "Reached Sound Card". It stops, not frozen or hanged beacuse
Ctrl-Alt-Del reboots the machine. It will boot only if I remove all
lines above "echo" line in grub.cfg.

And even if I get X with VESA, it looks horrible:

Notice that X is running in half the screen only. It is same way in
Trisquel if I do startx (with some Window Manager) but not with GNOME
or Xfce4 desktops.  gNewSense  works perfectly with WMs and Desktops.

I do not understand  its binary blob or some setting .
