wow thats a rare post!
many people here in the forum are either crying or complaining
I second this post. Had the same experience with the oss drivers with my hd3650 last time I tried it. Unfortunately I had to switch to fglrx because of HoN. A game I had to buy to sponsor linux games.
Maybe I'll give the oss drivers a shot again soon.
Can I dev plz tell me howto hack mesa to report opengl 2.1? Maybe HoN would run on the oss drivers.
There is power management with radeon right now. You have to enable it, but you got ClockGating, DynamicPM, and ForceLowPowerMode, all of which work (already tested them on a 200M and a HD4850).
i know of the new powermanagement patches, but since they are experimentul + dont clock the memory, or change the voltage and im generally to lazy to compile stuff on my own and fiddle with the kernel i will stick to fglrx for the time beeing.
lets see what the spring releases of the popular distros will bring.
so i wait for nice on the fly powermanagement and some more advanced 3d
