i wonder how is ati going to react to this. people are definitely more enthusiastic towards new driver, than they ever were towards fglrx :]
avivo driver might become serious competition for their fglrx someday (which doesn't seem that hard ;-) ). nvidia decided not to help and not to interfere with nouveau. i wonder what does ati will ati say about avivo once it matures a bit.
i really hope that they don't try to interfere.
Suppose I owned an R200 card and wanted to use its XvMc functionality. Is there anything I could do to get the ball rolling, please? (I have an LCD monitor - the most recent version of fglrx that supposedly supported R200 just resulted in a blank screen.)
And is there anything I could do to ensure that my R530-based laptop's XvMC capability doesn't languish too?
