    Go back a few posts and read what I wrote about crystalhd. It may very well be the case that broadcom has already taken the risk for them.... or maybe even already jeopardized AMD DRM... or proven that its ok. In any case, they've blazed the trail, so it might not be all that hard now.

    I think.

    Default Where is the source available?

    I've been hunting on AMD web site and the web but can't find the source.

    Does anyone have a URL for this Ontario driver?

    Thanks!

    It's an open source driver, so you need to look in the upstream projects.

    Kernel code is in the radeon-testing branch of airlied's drm tree : http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kerne...radeon-testing

    Mesa and ddx code is in the respective freedesktop.org projects (mesa/mesa and xorg/driver/xf86-video-ati).

    Do you actually have Ontario hardware ?

    Thanks for the information.

    Of course I don't have Ontario hardware - I just wanted to look at the code.

    Default Any news on this front?

    I'm looking to pick up passively cooled mini-itx/micro-atx boards for myth frontends. I had originally planned on going with much more powerful sandy bridge machines, but since Intel screwed up so badly with the H67/K combinations, I've lost interest.

    Has anyone got a chance to run linux on the new e350's? Does 3D/video acceleration work acceptably? Have ATi's drivers really improved perceptably over the past couple of years? Last time I tried to use an ATi card in linux it was a big mess.
