    Heck yea, I'll add a #9: Doesn't make me a sandwich..

    It's the right of any user to ask for anything they want.. Whether they get it is a different story..

    When developers make software catered around things the developers want, rather than what the users want, you have a platform that will have only developers as users.

      I'd rather see the open-source AMD devs working on things like HDMI audio and gallium3d vdpau support (or a native xvba state tracker for use with xbmc). Marek will keep plugging away at the opengl stuff.

        HDMI audio is implemented (Alex finished a first pass last year), we're just having a heck of a time figuring out if we can release it.

        Right now the priorities are SI support, OpenCL and figuring out if we can release some kind of UVD support.

          Edit: yup!! Just installing it (no reboot or anything) fixed WorldWind which used to fail drawing the textures on the globe due to a S3TC error!
          Really? Are you sure it isn't from RPM Fusion or something similar?

            Is the SI you're using refer to Scalable Interface / Crossfire? Or something else?

            I'd definitely put OpenCL before Crossfire.

              Sorry you're right, I forgot I had enabled "rpmfusion-free".

                The reason I have a yumfusion alias to "yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion[...]"

                  Southern Islands, I think.

                    Wasn't HDMI audio reverse engineered and accepted into the kernel already?

                    I wish better power management was somewhere in that list, but I suppose it's not much more important than those items either.

                      aka the r900g driver, or whatever they call it.
