    Phoronix: AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series Graphics Cards On Linux?

    This evening AMD has officially launched their Radeon HD 6800 series, which currently includes the Radeon HD 6850 and Radeon HD 6870 graphics cards. These are just two of several next-generation graphics cards to be launched over the coming weeks and months for consumers while next year the FirePro derivatives for professional/workstation customers should come around too based upon this architecture. How though does the AMD Radeon HD 6000 series play with Linux?..

    I think they're going to release with '11.01 because it seems completely new Catalyst is coming. I hope they launch serious Linux support with it.

    Yeah, BusID "PCI:<slot id>" work on here to select my r600g driver( using r600 + 6850). But now I use fglrx 10.11 on my 6850 until open sourced driver comes. It's quite stable and fast if I don't start GIMP (or X kill itself). You can also remove "unsupported logo" from driver within 2 line bash hack.

    I tried to do that, and it didn't seem to work.

    The primary display is the 6870 (I can't physically swap the cards due to the motherboard manufacturer putting the SATA connectors at the end of the PCIe slot - as the 4770 is slightly shorter it fits in that slot without snapping the cables off).

    I'll try hiding the card as suggested above , otherwise I'll stick with the power-lead trick (works perfectly well and I assume it won't break anything).

    BusID "PCI:<slot id>"
    in the device section of your config should do the trick. replace <bus id> with the slot id for your card (look up using lspci). E.g.,
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

    maybe you can use

    pciback.hide=(xx:yy.0)(xx:yy.1)

    where those are the 2 or more devices you want to hide, could be up to 3.

    lspci -nn

    will give you the options to put into (...)

    Is there any open-source news on the 68xx? Not sure if it's implemented anywhere?

    I'm currently unplugging the power to my 6870 when booting linux and it then switches to use my 4770 - I can't find any software method of ignoring the card.

    In the proprietary drivers I think we call that "Overlay Theater Mode" (for historical reasons... we don't use overlay these days
