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!
I've got two little questions, maybe one of the devs can answer them:
1.) When will EXA become the default acceleration method?
2.) When will DRI be activated by default?
Huh? How comes they only now steal... er, port this over from radeon?
Why do you think that?

(When I try to rotate with radeon it freezes my whole computer, and the devs seem to think this is okay. ( Link ))
