The open-source RadeonHD driver
that is even supports the Radeon HD 2900XT
has continued over the past few days with a number of changes. Among these changes has been adding identification support for new GPUs (including the Apple MacBook Pro 2.2), removing some experimental checks, adding the conntest utility
, and this morning AMD's AtomBIOS parser was merged into the xf86-video-radeonhd
git tree. This AtomBIOS parser was written internally at AMD but is now available as open-source code. Check out the RadeonHD git code if you want to try out an open-source driver for ATI's R500 and R600 graphics processors.
