    Cool, while 2D/3D accel are missing, i am actually wondering about when/if they will add TV/Component out, which i use heavily on my linux machine.

      Hmm, I must be doing something wrong when I try to add it to rhd_id.c.. how do I add the pci id exactly?

        They'll support it.

          Back to my scaling problem, it should work out of the box, but there is a bug in gstreamer0.10-pitfdll. An updated package for Gutsy is availiable within the according launchpad entry and it fixed the problem for me: Click!

            For Mandriva users: the Mandriva radeonhd package is regularly updated, and uploaded to the /main/backports repository for Mandriva Linux 2008. If you're running 2008 and you'd like to try this version of the driver, enable the /main/backports repository - see http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Bas...ions_available and http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Bas...didate_updates - and install the 'x11-driver-video-radeonhd' and 'ldetect-lst' packages from it. Then run the graphics card configuration tool, re-select your card group (probably 'ATI Radeon X1300 and later'), and say 'no' when asked if you want to use the proprietary driver. This should make it use the radeonhd driver. Then just restart X.

              Well I just added the driver to the Kanotix repository, it compiled fine on Debian etch. I just can not test it. When you use Kanotix Thorhammer use:

              [for live mode: fix-unionfs]

              apt-get update
              apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd

              and change /etc/X11/xorg.conf to radeonhd.

                I may be self-delusional, but my early impression is that most things are way faster with the radeonHD driver than they were with FGLRX 7.11 (on Ubuntu 7.10).

                  I completely agree, RadeonHD is much more comfortable than Catalyst 7.11. Of course RadeonHD has no 2d/3d acceleration, no AIGLX, no compositing, no TV-out and no Xv-support but it is still fast when scrolling in firefox or when drawing rectangles on your desktop.

                  edit: ow, and did I mention that it is more stable than Catalyst 7.11? After only a few minutes, 7.11 would crash my Xserver and I couldn't get it up again until reboot. RadeonHD has run smoothly for hours now

                    Hey guys I installed radeonhd using ABS (Arch Build System) but I can't use it, it can't find the module. That's what I get:
                    Code:
                    [root@hammer nognir]# modprobe radeonhd
                    FATAL: Module radeonhd not found.
                    Any suggestions?

                      Why do you want to load a kernel module?
                      This driver doesn't provide one.

                        Hey. I've explained all the necessary steps to install RadeonHD on Arch in reply 14 of this topic. You said that you had installed the module from ABS. Have you installed the driver using "pacman -U radeonhd-blabla.pkg.tar.gz" after issuing "makepkg -s" ? If not, then you have compiled the driver but have not yet installed it.
                        By the way, did you replace the existing videodriver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf with "radeonhd"?

                          I did all that, now I'm back without fglrx, but glxinfo shows that:
                          Code:
                          OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
                          OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
                          OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.1)
                          That's the fallback, right? What do I do from now on?

                            That is not the fallback but as it should be. Remember that the RadeonHD-driver does not yet have 3d accelleration and you will see Mesa as OpelGL version string. If /etc/X11/xorg.conf contains "radeonhd" in the driver-line, you are successfully running RadeonHD. It is however in a very early state of development, and is not yet suited for production use.

                              It just crushed on glxgears. Not supposed to happen?

                                glxgears needs opengl and as stated above radeonhd doesn't support that yet.
