    Default RadeonHD Driver Picks Up Rotation Support

    Phoronix: RadeonHD Driver Picks Up Rotation Support

    Egbert Eich has announced this morning on the RadeonHD mailing list that rotation support has been added to this open-source ATI R500+ driver. This is a feature requested by many to be able to rotate the screen using RandR with the xf86-video-radeonhd driver, which is now possible...

    Great work, devs!

    2.) When will DRI be activated by default?
