          This support in the driver is initial as the Novell developers responsible for a majority of the work on the xf86-video-radeonhd still have yet to receive the RV670 specifications or even the hardware.
          yep, without hw to test the driver on or without proper documentation....
          if that's the stuff they get us by these means, think of what they could have done with full support...

            Awesome work guys, It is amazing that OSS is supporting my 3870 before ATI. Still, good on ATI for releasing the specs and allowing this to happen but so far it looks like radeonhd will be the way to go.

            Cheers

              to tell the truth fglrx supported that from 7.11 and radeonhd just from this last release. or at least that's what i've read here.

                You are correct in your reading.

                  My chipset was not recognized in either 7.11 or 7.12. I know it worked for some people but not me.

                    Hmm, it worked OK for me last night, once I got it set up. (Output names have changed since I tried it last) It would not come up right with my DVI monitor attached to port 2 instead of port 1. (It recognizes the port furthest from the PCIe connector as port 1 for some odd reason.)

                    This morning, the first time I logged in, the screen would blink on and off. DPMS problem? I logged out and back in, and everything seems to be OK this time.

                    Fedora 8
                    xorg-x11-driver-video-radeonhd-1.1.0-2.1
                    xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.3.0.0-36.fc8
                    kernel 2.6.23.8-63.fc8
                    Xorg.0.log available upon request.
