    I would wait until the distro releases next spring. The SI driver is under heavy development right now, and you can get it working, but if you wait 6 months i think you'll be a lot happier.

    (The 3.11 kernel does help, a lot, but the 3.12 kernel and Mesa 9.3 already have a lot more fixes that you'll probably want too)
