    The article shows how to install radeonhd, which I did some time ago successfully.
    However now I want to update radeonhd, what are the commands to download readeonhd from git?
    Go to your "xf86-video-radeonhd" dir which you've downloaded with that git command and run

    git pull

    to update and then

    ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr
    make
    root > make install

    again.

        Is this tutorial still up to date?
        Because it was written for 7.10 and now we are on 8.10 with new Xorg, Mesa etc. etc.

          if you dont want to compile it manual you can use the PPA from Tormod https://launchpad.net/~tormodvolden/+archive

            I don't have problems with compiling it, it worked just fine on 7.10 / 8.04. I just want to be shure that (exactly) this method is still OK.

              The original doc is out of date. It was written before direct rendering capabilities were added for R5x0 cards and 690G IGP, so it doesn't reflect those changes.

              I've attempted to write an updated install guide for Ubuntu 8.x:

              If anyone has suggestions/feedback, please post here or PM me. Thanks.
