Now that I am posting this from my desktop without using Lynx, I think that I am pretty sure 2D is actually working, yes...
THAT WAS AWESOME. Talk about excruciatingly clear. Thank you I've been wondering the same for a while. Now i can tell where Wayland fits in and stuff. you should put this post at the top of the xorg wiki or something.OK so far ?
I dont understand, guys...
Whats current opensource drivers status on 4770 and 5670?
4770 has 2d and 3d, 5670 has neither.
hd5 has modesetting.
No, you have the option of using the EXACT SAME hardware driver in linux as you use in windoze -- they call it "catalyst". Same code, same driver, no difference.do linux users always have to use hardware that are ten years old?
Where are you coming up with these numbers?Perhaps we could finally use R800 for linux desktop for good when R1000 releases on market. So expect to see OGL 3D on your HD 5870 in the year 2012.
Pff, so with opensource:
4770 - 2D yes - 3D(basic) yes
5670 - 2D yes - 3D none?
Its kinda important to me, cause with compiz work has more fun
And Im on all ati hardware(not i3-540, and selling 9800gt instead of keeping) for the sole sake of supporting them. I also remember "awesome" experience installing nvidia blob on debian as well as being in need to have gcc, glibc and xorg that confirm to nvidia on my (lovely) gentoo.
