Thank You for all the good work and effort You've made! I'll probably wait for the end of next week to embark on Lucid ship.

Tried on 2.6.32-rc6 with everything in your how-to, except the "pull from drm-linus". I assumed (probably wrongly) that the stuff is in the latest rc.

With 2.6.32-rc7 it works! I just refreshed all gits and now there's a picture on both screens, with acceleration on multiple VT's.

The VT switching is indeed fast. Only when I switch back to graphic mode the repaint is somewhat visibly slow. But once the picture is on the screen the speed is back to normal.
Thanks a bunch. It feels great that my wife can have acceleration in her session, which until now was not possible (the scrolling in web browser was really a pain).
thanks for the tips and feedback. guide now fixed with the two slashes.
Getting Open Source 3D graphics on R6XX/R7XX cards NO FGLRX
Can i know has anybody tried any open source tool for migration from Documentum to Vignette database ?
If yes, then post some ideas how we can achieve that migration.
Easier way for Ubuntu Users
Thank you so much for this guide! Compiz on my Radeon HD 2400XT without fglrx! How much of my life have I spent trying to get fglrx to work over the years only to have it break again a few months later...
Anyway, for ubuntu users (and maybe others if your dist rolls out a package for this) you can skip the kernel recompile if you use the drm-next kernel. Ubuntu can download it here: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...-next/current/
Download the linux-image for 32-bit or 64-bit, linux-headers***all, and linux-headers for 32-bit or 64-bit. Install those three packages. Then skip directly to step 5 in the guide (you don't need to build your own kernel).
Thanks again! Hooray!

For ubuntu users, and possibly others depending on if your distribution rolls out a package for it, there is a way to avoid the kernel compilation (first 4 steps). To do this, install the drm-next kernel.
- Go to http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...-next/current/
- Download the linux-image for your arch (64bit or 32bit), linux-headers (all), and linux-headers for your arch.
- Install those three packages
- Make sure in /etc/grub/menu.lst that you are booting the drm-next kernel
Now you can go straight to step 5 of this post (after the kernel compilation).
Is there anybody running Debian testing/unstable who can no longer get this to work? For the longest time, this guide has always worked and ever since I installed a bunch of updates, it doesn't. I'm running 2.6.32 and I get the error: "(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration." And then it says something else about no video modes being available, even though I have them set. I wish I could figure out what package broke all of this, but I have no idea which one it is. I know this is a pretty vague problem, but again, I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and/or what I can do to resolve it.
