    X2?

    Is there/will be in current drivers support of Crossfire?

    Why do you say this ? As far as I know the initial KMS code supports the HD4870 to the same extent as other 6xx/7xx chips.

    Sounds like the 3D code is there but just needs some updates. The IRQ message is normal right now but the rrb message was fixed a few weeks ago IIRC.

    Better power management is next on our list once r6xx/r7xx 3D support stabilizes a bit more.
    Awesome! Thanks for the quick response, not to mention all the work you and your colleagues have been getting done.

    Indeed. Sadly, the *buntus won't see r600/r700 OpenGL until NEXT APRIL when "Karmic Koala" comes out.
    Did I miss something, Normaly Ubuntu releases new versions all 6 months, and that should be true for Karmic, too.

    http://www.pettinix.org/2009/04/29/u...la-la-roadmap/

    So it should come on 29th of October.

    about my last question, I asked because I see since a few weeks something that looks like the new drm code.

    http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/changel...ntu1/changelog

    [email protected]:~$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep r600
    (II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized /usr/lib/dri/r600_dri.so

    [email protected]:~$ glxinfo | grep Mesa
    IRQ's not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 2 16
    no rrb
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R600 (RV740 94B3) 20090101 TCL
    OpenGL version string: 1.4 Mesa 7.6-devel

    I dont know whats missing to get this work but I think it?s not the dri version?

    It?s not software-rendering anymore but the hardware 3d (glxgears) does not work yet at least here (hd4770).


    I hope they fix it soon, but I think they will till karmic release.

    Ha! Now this is some news that fits my taste! Yeah! Hopefully 2.6.32 won't take too long to emerge on my box. Thanks developers/AMD-ATI.

    Okey so the following has been completely implemented (if the card has hardware support for this) across all ATI cards:
    DDX (X server modesetting)
    ShadowFB
    Old 2D acceleration (XAA)
    2D acceleration (EXA)
    Overlay Xv
    Textured Xv
    Dual-link DVI
    XRandR 1.2
    Suspend support
    Console restore

    Thank you to everybody here who made that possible!

    Now this is what worries me: why is there not going to be support for KMS on the HDRadeon4870?

    I'm liking Arch's rolling release model more and more!

    EDIT: I called Ubuntu 10.04 "Karmic Koala". d'oh!

Any chance of a rough estimate of when we can expect to see the feature matrix show "Done" all the way across those rows (for the radeon driver anyway, not radeonhd), or an estimate of how far along those features currently are? The article mentions KMS tvout support, will that mean feature parity with fglrx for svideo output options (last I heard you could only do NTSC at 800x600 - I want 640x480)?
