    Out of interest, were you able to test with an X1400?

    I added the PCI id for my Lenovo T60 (id is 7145 - M54 Mobility X1400). I get normal looking output on the left side of the screen, but tearing on the right side..

    Thanks,
    Jon.

    Very interesting. Might try it with my X1900XT 512 soon... is it already supported in git?

    I have 6 weeks school holidays starting tomorrow so I could test it for fun.

    Phoronix: The Open-Source ATI R500 Driver

    Last week the first open-source ATI R500 (Radeon X1000 series) driver had entered the world. This new driver (named the xf86-video-avivo) is very early into development, but a small set of developers have been working on reverse engineering this GPU class for the past couple of months. This driver does not yet contain any 3D functionality or support for features that most end-users expect. At this point, the driver just contains very basic initialization and set video mode support for a portion of the Radeon X1000 family. Even with this very basic R500 driver, we couldn't help but to explore the Avivo driver for the past few days.
