My computer booted under Debian Wheezy (3.2 kernel) with no graphics problems whatsoever. After updating to sid (3.10 kernel), the screen goes black (that is, the display flashes a bit and then goes into power-saving mode) and turns off whenever the kernel tries to set up the radeon framebuffer (both if I boot without the nomodeset option and if I load the module via modprobe radeon modeset=1). I then compiled the kernel (both 3.10 and 3.11), Mesa and the xorg driver for myself with the same results.
