Uuuuh. Sounds like quirks for every second mainboard are coming up. How I hate this. Why do they have to mess around with the chips? Nothing against some individuality but this "Extrawurst" that make things incompatible / not work without large workarounds really pisses me off. Or isn't it?

Well, but good to read that agd5f and team are up to these cuddly sweet things. Cause I am really thinking about spending my next free money on a Brazos or Llano machine, Laptop or HTPC. Okay, meanwhile I could also live with the fglrx.
By the way:
Is there anything ongoing in terms of the use of the UVD ASIC in the free drivers? Can it be used without causing the content mafia to scream when we just watch our correctly licensed BluRay movies on Linux?
Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
