      whats an x2300? theres hd2400/2600/2900 and only the hd2900 have been released. i'm guessing support for those will come in the next couple of months. Maybe you meant x1300?

        There's the Mobility Radeon HD 2300, which he probably means.

            I just checked and there is a mobility HD2300 but its a rebranded X1000 series gpu so it should work with fglrx in theory

                Its the same thing. I guess they call x2300 to differentiate it from the R600 based GPUs. Still there should be support for this gpu in fglrx.

                    More info or ETA?

                    Hi guys. I just joined phoronix tonight - I've been watching the thread(s) (and waiting) for the fglrx support in F7.

                    I've been seeing a lot of: "You're just going to have to wait..." type responses like to wait 'till 8.38 or to use the vesa drivers or that it'll be due "sometime" in June.

                    Now, I can understand that these things take time, but there are probably lots of folks (including myself) who rushed and downloaded F7 Final as soon as they could get their hands on it. Some (or all) of us are trying to decide whether to wipe and go back, wipe and go to a different distro, or whether to just wait 'till the "sometime in June". Or else, go out and buy a compatible video card from another vendor.

                    Any information for an ETA on the next driver release would be much appreciated - as well as serve to calm some of the unrest over the driver issue.

                    Thank you for your time,

                    Harry

                      It will ideally be pushed out towards the middle of the month and won't face multiple delays again... ideally.

                            While I am bound by NDA regarding the specifics for upcoming driver releases, I have yet to see an AMD fglrx release that fully works with Fedora 7.

                              Fellas, on one hand i would agreee with you aqusing Phoronix and AMD/ATI.
                              but to the contrast:
                              - I have been using Linux for 8 years now.
                              - Used Redhat,Slackware,Knoppix,Debian and Fedora from FC1

                              Would you like me to aquse Intel and ATI becuase it simply does not run in ANY mode on my Lenovo laptop! how do you like that? even the init mode 3 it does hang! can you belive that?
                              FC3-6 worked mostly with no problem but did required some modifications and tweaks. FC7 - simply does not work. Deal with it. and i would rather jump on FC developers for releasing OS that absolutelly does not work in a simple console mode, i mean common at least make some nice Docs prior releaseing OS that has info: this is changed you must play with this is you havgin problems and etc.

                              Example: i boot in level 3, unplug network cord, plug it back into jack - and the laptop booted in FC7 - frozen.

                              and don't start - that my hardware is f***ed - it's not.

                              so the answer - don't jump on one person - when it is actually a lot more involved. forget at the moment about ATI driver and FC7 - FC7 is broken at the moment (as always when new Fedore come out) and no real documentation there that can help quickly narrow the problem.

                              Have fun.

                                And from my own problem:

                                Originally posted by Xipeos View Post
                                I now noticed that I have the same problem with aticonfig IF the xserver is running. For example I do
                                Code:

                                # aticonfig --enable-monitor=crt1
                                Using /etc/X11/xorg.conf
                                Saved back-up to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.fglrx-0

                                and then it "freezes" the same way that amdcccle does, and strace shows the same (or similar?) "Resource temporarily unvailable" error.
                                Maybe the two problems are related (ie. not fedora specific). If by "crash" you mean "freeze" then it could very well be the same problem. So then:
                                They are not X.Org related and I will explain more in the very near future
                                How near is the very near future?
