    Phoronix: Installing The RadeonHD Driver On Ubuntu

    While today's unveiling of the RadeonHD driver for the ATI R500 and R600 series is great news, this driver right now is targeted solely for developers as it's still experimental and doesn't yet support 3D acceleration and other key functionality generally needed in production environments. However, if you are looking to try out this new RadeonHD driver on Ubuntu because you're running into problems with the proprietary fglrx driver or just wishing to report your results, we've documented the installation procedures for Ubuntu.

    Is this tutorial still up to date? Because it was written for 7.10 and now we are on 8.10 ...
    The original doc is out of date. It was written before direct rendering capabilities were added for R5x0 cards and 690G IGP, so it doesn't reflect those changes.

    I've attempted to write an updated install guide for Ubuntu 8.x:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonHD

    If anyone has suggestions/feedback, please post here or PM me. Thanks.

    I don't have problems with compiling it, it worked just fine on 7.10 / 8.04. I just want to be shure that (exactly) this method is still OK.

    if you dont want to compile it manual you can use the PPA from Tormod https://launchpad.net/~tormodvolden/+archive

    However now I want to update radeonhd, what are the commands to download readeonhd from git?
    Go to your "xf86-video-radeonhd" dir which you've downloaded with that git command and run

    git pull

    to update and then

    ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr
    make
    root > make install

    again.

    The simplest ways to test the RadeonHD in Ubuntu is to use the packages provided by Tormod Volden. They are updated quite often.
