Thanks AMD, if all this become real, here is one new customer!
Okey so the following has been completely implemented (if the card has hardware support for this) across all ATI cards:
DDX (X server modesetting)
Old 2D acceleration (XAA)
2D acceleration (EXA)
Thank you to everybody here who made that possible!
Now this is what worries me: why is there not going to be support for KMS on the HDRadeon4870?
Did I miss something, Normaly Ubuntu releases new versions all 6 months, and that should be true for Karmic, too.Indeed. Sadly, the *buntus won't see r600/r700 OpenGL until NEXT APRIL when "Karmic Koala" comes out.
So it should come on 29th of October.
about my last question, I asked because I see since a few weeks something that looks like the new drm code.
black@saturn:~$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep r600
(II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized /usr/lib/dri/r600_dri.so
black@saturn:~$ glxinfo | grep Mesa
IRQ's not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 2 16
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R600 (RV740 94B3) 20090101 TCL
OpenGL version string: 1.4 Mesa 7.6-devel
I dont know whats missing to get this work but I think itīs not the dri version?
Itīs not software-rendering anymore but the hardware 3d (glxgears) does not work yet at least here (hd4770).
I hope they fix it soon, but I think they will till karmic release.

Is there/will be in current drivers support of Crossfire?
There has been discussion about adding support for Crossfire-like operation to the open drivers but it's a large task and I don't expect it to happen in the near future. Crossfire is not something you can just enable in the hardware.
