    Is there anything I can do to help the development of this driver?

    I can program in C, but I'm afraid I've never written a driver for anything before and have no idea how to reverse engineer a graphics card.

    I can test it, which I will do shortly (I have an x1600) and see if I have problems, but is there anything else I can do?

      You can make sure other Linux users are aware of this driver as an alternative to fglrx, report any bugs found in the driver, and with your C experience there's a chance you might be of use working on avivotool (the program associated with the driver), but that would just be a guess.

      For specific areas you can help with, ask Jerome Glisse. His email address can be found on this page @ http://gitweb.freedesktop.org/?p=avi...ca4dd15e24c8f6 or you can send him a private message on the Phoronix Forums @ http://www.phoronix.com/forums/member.php?u=3054
