Is there a set date / catalyst version when this will be supported under Linux? A lot of notebooks are sold with these latest cards and no sign of any support for them.
This is the same old boat I was in years ago when I owned a 9600xt. Crappy driver...but currently worse: NO DRIVER!
No OSS no closed source. Screw it.
UPDATE: 10.1 is working with the card! It adds an transparent Unsupported HW icon in the bottom-left corner, but works on my Arch Linux. I had to edit the xorg.conf manually, aticonfig is saying no supported device present. Look below for details in the replies.
If you happen to run it successfully on your Mobility hd 5xxx drop a reply, I will append this list:
10.1 runs on the following HD 5xxx mobility config:
Mobility HD 5650 - arch linux 64bit, 2.6.32 kernel, downgraded X to 1.6, 10.1 catalyst from AUR repository. Supsend-To-Ram and opengl games work too.
