    Phoronix: Avivo R500 Linux Driver Status

    A month ago we told you that Avivo v0.1.0 (the open-source ATI R500 X1000 Linux driver) was coming soon, but still we have not seen this release. Talking with Jerome Glisse (the main Avivo developer), the v0.1.0 release is postponed until he or another willing open-source developer fixes issues with the Radeon X1200, X1300, X1400, and X1900 to allow for properly setting the TMDS on these graphics cards.

    Did you know that Fedora 8 will have Avivo included?

    If it's a patch for the mainstream driver and not some distribution-specific bit, try submitting the patch to David Airlie -- http://www.phoronix.com/forums/member.php?u=3457 or http://airlied.livejournal.com/profile

    Well, a wet dream with the current fglrx driver... You'll need to draw your own beliefs whether there will be AIGLX in the new driver .

    it is working better than 8.39.4 for me...xv overlay missing, but videos play as bad as with fgrlx , so I think I will use this driver and wait for something better

    keep up the good work
    Should my ati firegl mobility 5250 work with the avivo driver?

    Can someone post their xorg.conf file? I tried using the avivo driver and got card not found or something.

    Does this driver support AIGLX and if not what needs to be done to support it? I realize that this is a fairly new in it's development stages but whatever I need to do to help, let me know.
