    Ok...something's weird here, then. I think I have the radeonHD driver loaded (radeonhd as the specified driver in xorg.conf), but glxgears runs...slowly compared to the fglrx driver, but runs nonetheless.

    What gives?

      No 2D, no 3D acceleration.

        It will of course run with software rendering.
        That means, that your cpu is taking all the work.
        (So the driver doesn't have anything to do with it.)

          Thank you. I understand better, now.

            Well, I just compiled and installed it. Running 1.0.0 right now. I'm very impressed with it, yeah it doesn't have 2d acceleration yet (although 2d doesn't seem slow by any means) or 3d acceleration. This driver looks like its going to shape up to be a very very solid driver. I can't wait until theres 3d acceleration, I think I'll have to pick me up a new ATI card when the 3d matures.

              This driver has now hit gentoo portage.

                Build fix for Debian sid sources on etch or Ubuntu

                You need this source line in /etc/apt/sources.list:

                Code:
                deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian sid main
                And install the required tools:

                Code:
                apt-get install devscripts fakeroot pbuilder
                After that you can do

                Code:
                apt-get source xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd
                cd xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd*
                sed -i 's/^\(Build-Depends:\).*/\1 debhelper (>= 5), quilt, pkg-config, xserver-xorg-dev (>= 2:1.1), x11proto-video-dev, x11proto-fonts-dev, x11proto-randr-dev (>= 1.1), x11proto-render-dev, automake, autoconf, libtool, xutils-dev, x11proto-xext-dev/' debian/control
                # for use with Debian etch add this (would not hurt anyway)
                sed -i 's#^\(SERVERMINVERS =\).*#\1 $(shell cat /usr/share/xserver-xorg/serverminver 2>/dev/null||echo 2:1.1)#;
                        s#^\(VIDEOABI =\).*#\1 $(shell cat /usr/share/xserver-xorg/videoabiver 2>/dev/null||echo 1.0)#;
                        s#^\(INPUTABI =\).*#\1 $(shell cat /usr/share/xserver-xorg/inputabiver 2>/dev/null||echo 0)#' debian/xsfbs/xsfbs.mk
                debuild -S
                After that you can use pbuilder build xserver*.dsc (after pbuilder create) or just

                Code:
                apt-get build-dep xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd
                debuild -b

                  the git version ebuild has been in the x11 overlay for long.

                    Is this driver supposed to support the 38xx series cards?

                      It's not officially been tested, but should work if all goes well.

                        I'm having a few problems. I think It built fine, and I can see the radeonhd drivers in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers but when I look through /var/log/Xorg.0.log it seems that the VESA driver is being loaded every time.

                        I have modified /etc/X11/xorg.conf does anyone have any suggestions? Should I try to also modify the BusID. How do I know the busID of my card?

                        Cheers

                          Are you able to post your xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log somewhere?

                              After you installed the drivers, did you edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf (note the "X" in X11 is an uppercase "X") and change the driver in the "Device" section from "vesa" to "radeonhd" ?

                                Yep, done that. I have pasted my logs and xorg.conf into pastebin but the spam filter must be reporting it as spam... not sure.

                                Do you have a 38xx card. Have you got it working?

                                EDIT: Just noticed the following in my xorg log
                                (--) PCI:*(1:0:0) ATI Technologies Inc unknown chipset (0x9501) rev 0, Mem @ 0xe0000000/28, 0xf5000000/16, I/O @ 0xb000/8
