For those of you using an RS480 or RS690 IGP with the open-source xf86-video-ati, there is great news coming out of the Airlie camp. Compiz is now working for the RS480 and RS690! David Airlie has found a bug in the Mesa R300 DRI driver and has committed a patch (containing just three new lines of code and one line removal) correcting this issue. So that non-git users can experience the joys of Compiz on their ATI IGPs with the open-source driver, David will be pushing this fix into the Mesa 7.0.x (the next release should be Mesa 7.0.4) as well as releasing updated Mesa packages for Fedora 8 and Fedora 9. David Airlie mentioned this on his blog.
