You do know that Axel already has packages with those patches available so you
don't have to compile your own kernel, yes?

Uh, according to who? I ran a 3200+ on my 7NIF2 while using the onboard
graphics for ages before moving it to another board, no problems to speak
of... The only limitation of using the onboard graphics that I know of is you
can't run your memory in dual-channel mode, which is pretty inconsequential
for Myth (might make a bit of difference for HDTV, not sure). Perhaps you've
had a flakey board from the get-go.
