    Ok...something's weird here, then. I think I have the radeonHD driver loaded (radeonhd as the specified driver in xorg.conf), but glxgears runs...slowly compared to the fglrx driver, but runs nonetheless.

    What gives?

    No 2D, no 3D acceleration.

    It will of course run with software rendering.
    That means, that your cpu is taking all the work.
    (So the driver doesn't have anything to do with it.)

    Well, I just compiled and installed it. Running 1.0.0 right now. I'm very impressed with it, yeah it doesn't have 2d acceleration yet (although 2d doesn't seem slow by any means) or 3d acceleration. This driver looks like its going to shape up to be a very very solid driver. I can't wait until theres 3d acceleration, I think I'll have to pick me up a new ATI card when the 3d matures.

    Default Build fix for Debian sid sources on etch or Ubuntu

    You need this source line in /etc/apt/sources.list:

    Code:
    deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian sid main
    And install the required tools:

    Code:
    apt-get install devscripts fakeroot pbuilder
    After that you can do

    Code:
    apt-get source xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd
    cd xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd*
    sed -i 's/^\(Build-Depends:\).*/\1 debhelper (>= 5), quilt, pkg-config, xserver-xorg-dev (>= 2:1.1), x11proto-video-dev, x11proto-fonts-dev, x11proto-randr-dev (>= 1.1), x11proto-render-dev, automake, autoconf, libtool, xutils-dev, x11proto-xext-dev/' debian/control
    # for use with Debian etch add this (would not hurt anyway)
    sed -i 's#^\(SERVERMINVERS =\).*#\1 $(shell cat /usr/share/xserver-xorg/serverminver 2>/dev/null||echo 2:1.1)#;
            s#^\(VIDEOABI =\).*#\1 $(shell cat /usr/share/xserver-xorg/videoabiver 2>/dev/null||echo 1.0)#;
            s#^\(INPUTABI =\).*#\1 $(shell cat /usr/share/xserver-xorg/inputabiver 2>/dev/null||echo 0)#' debian/xsfbs/xsfbs.mk
    debuild -S
    After that you can use pbuilder build xserver*.dsc (after pbuilder create) or just

    Code:
    apt-get build-dep xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd
    debuild -b

    Is this driver supposed to support the 38xx series cards?

    It's not officially been tested, but should work if all goes well.
