The Open-Source ATI R500 Driver
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.
Fedora 7 with X1700 problem with open-source
I've tried using the xf86-video-avivo open-source driver for ati but can't seem to get it working. Could someone please push me in the right direction?
This is my output:-
