    Oh yeah! got it working with my 5770! Sadly my card doesn't seem to have supported power management from the xf86-video-ati driver but i read somewhere (on this forum?) that the 2.6.34 kernel is likely to either support it or provide the basics so the driver can support it.

    Awesome so far

    You can add:

    Code:
    Option      "ForceLowPowerMode" "true"
    to your xorg.conf. This will run the card with the engine and memory clocks on half of the normal frequencies.

    Thanx for the line although it's not working here...
    After adding that line i had to boot from another linux distro and remove the line since my screen was just black! Removing it solved the issue.

    Maybe because the HD5XXX Serie has currently only MOdesettings Support nothing more.

    Interesting. It was working for me, but when I lowered the clocks to fglrx levels I experienced the same thing as you. Maybe it is because shadowfb is being used, I don't know. I'll give it another try when there's EXA support.
