ATI r500 Console Framebuffer Support?
Greetings Folks! We have been hearing a lot lately about all the work on the radeonHD driver, but has any work been done on a kernel driver for better console output? From my experience, the console support has been atrocious. My X1950 card frequently produces garbled output and flickering before X kicks in and I can't get a resolution above 1280x1024. I would really like to see reliable support widescreen resolutions ideally 1920x1200. Is there any progress being made in this area and can we expect any working solutions in the near future?
