I run Archlinux with 2.6.28 kernel and the new ati 6.12 driver with the required drm upgrades(from drm git repo), but I cannot get the acceleration to work. DRI modules load just fine exa loads but close to the end of Xorg.0.log it says acceleration failed. xvinfo says no adapters found. I have uninstalled fglrx so I know that is not the problem. My video card is a amd/ati 4870. If anyone has any ideas I would very much appreciate it? fglrx preformance is terrible, even with xv it tears and flickers considerbly more than radeon or radeonhd.
here are my Xorg.0.log and dmesg output
