    But the message is too short so I have to type this useless sentence
    WTF? 5770 with working 2D on open-source drivers?
    Can you doublecheck?
    I can wait for 3D anyway.. Had enough of "wine" already.

      In a few seconds, energyman is going to knock on your door

      So, you mean, even on 4770 the only driver with 3D is fglrx and for 5xxx cards it is also the only one for 2D? Do I copy it right?
      Yes. Don't know about KMS, I lost it with Fedora 12 when HD3300 -> HD5770

        Ehm... I remember removing my 4870x2, enjoying KMS for 3 months or so with my onboard HD3300... then actually buying a 5770, taking it out of the box, plugging it into my PCI-E slot, fastening it with a screwdriver, booting Fedora 12, seeing that my KMS has gone and watching a YouTube movie...

        Now that I am posting this from my desktop without using Lynx, I think that I am pretty sure 2D is actually working, yes...

          Thank you

          OK so far ?
          THAT WAS AWESOME. Talk about excruciatingly clear. Thank you I've been wondering the same for a while. Now i can tell where Wayland fits in and stuff. you should put this post at the top of the xorg wiki or something.

                  You need to lay off the drugs pal, since when did ANYTHING *just work* in windoze? I'm afraid that NOTHING has EVER *just worked* there -- you need to install hardware driver or be stuck with the VESA driver (which they call "VGA".

                  do linux users always have to use hardware that are ten years old?
                  No, you have the option of using the EXACT SAME hardware driver in linux as you use in windoze -- they call it "catalyst". Same code, same driver, no difference.

                  Perhaps we could finally use R800 for linux desktop for good when R1000 releases on market. So expect to see OGL 3D on your HD 5870 in the year 2012.
                  Where are you coming up with these numbers?

                    Pff, so with opensource:
                    4770 - 2D yes - 3D(basic) yes
                    5670 - 2D yes - 3D none?

                    Its kinda important to me, cause with compiz work has more fun
                    And Im on all ati hardware(not i3-540, and selling 9800gt instead of keeping) for the sole sake of supporting them. I also remember "awesome" experience installing nvidia blob on debian as well as being in need to have gcc, glibc and xorg that confirm to nvidia on my (lovely) gentoo.

                      Boot a Fedora LiveCD, because evergreen does 2D
