    This. Also: the more we test that, the more quickly DPM will get fixed. My E-450 wasn't booting at all with RC1 + DPM (WSoD), but the bugfixing patches between RC1 and RC2 saved the day.

      Replying to myself: there is a new package in a special Fedora repository that does the trick. So, my E-450 netbook, with Fedora 19 with special repos, Mesa from yesterday, and with a special firmware folder setup (I deleted /usr/lib/firmware and replaced it with a git clone of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git ), is running like a dream. Same battery life as Catalyst, none of Catalyst bugs, splendid 2D performance, more than adequate 3D performance, VDPAU video acceleration... This is amazing.

      The only things missing seem to be:

      1. Are E-450 Turbo GPU speeds supported by DPM?
      2. OpenGL 4.x

        Yes, turbo is fully supported.

          Is there a plan to support older GPU (R500)?

          Thanks.

            Great to hear. I have an E-450 m-itx board for my home theater PC, and I've been looking forward to dumping Catalyst. I haven't tested it too much myself, because breaking it would mean that I can't watch TV


            FGLRX, with XVBA, doesn't seem to support MPEG2 hardware decoding (only h264, VC1), but if I understand correctly the Free driver implementation does. If so that is seriously awesome, because HDTV is broadcast here in super high bitrate MPEG2 + aac. My E-450 is able to decode it on the CPU, but just barely. It'll be nice not having the CPU running at 98% all the time.

              No, they don't have the power hw. Search for bridgman/agd5f posts, CBA to look it up now.

                Now there are new firmware packages for F19, so no git custom firmware setup needed; we only need the special kernel repo.

                It looks like there are Fedora package maintainers reading this thread .

                  I was able to decode some Shingeki no Kyoujin 720p videos with Mplayer2 and VDPAU at 12% CPU usage (you know that's impossible for an E-450 without HW assistance), but the Gallium VDPAU state tracker seems to be picky about the quality of your videos. Test, test and test, and report back any bug.

                    It's me again. You won't have any issues anymore with today's Fedora update.

                    What you want is MPEG2_MAIN. VDPAU + the free driver gives it.

                      Hd 6870

                      Anyone has DPM working on HD 6870 [BARTS]?
                      I get black screen right after the module loads on 3.11-rc[1-3] with radeon.dpm=1 .
                      GCC is 4.8.1 and I have all the latest BARTS firmware.
