xf86-video-ati 6.6.193 released

I've done another beta release of the X.org ATI driver.

This contains some fixes for a segfault in the DPMS paths on certain cards, RS480 support for 3Ds (requires newer Mesa), better VBL support for lowering power consumption if the kernel drm supports it, along with a bunch of bugfixes and cleanups.

There is a blocker bug 11749 for the 6.7 release.

Dear Arlie,

If I had a chest worth showing you and I thought Gia wouldn't mind, I would. I love you. I love you so much. (You see, I am not crazy, I just own a RS480 :|)

Thanks for all the good work by you and others!


Same thing

Like R. said, but more prudish.
Thanks !

Thank you very much

Another big thanks to all developers of open source ATI driver from a user of ATI Radeon Xpress 200M based laptop. You rock and I can only hope that AMD/ATI starts cooperating with you much more in the future and make your work easier.

Great !

I'm no RS480 owner but I wanted to thank you anyway.
Any news on the radeon driver is good news !
I've been using it for month now, and it's so wonderfull to have a compeletely free driver after all the hassle I used to endure with fglrx...
Not to mention the out of the box support for compiz fusion !! :D

Great job, and many thanks to you all.


I'd also like to thank you for all your work. Another comment mentioned compiz - does that run on the rs480 now?

Re: Compiz

I tried it the other day. AIGLX works without crashing, glxgears and general 3d as well. But there's an issue with texture. Starting beryl/compiz works, you also get the wobbly effects and stuff, but the textures are garbled. Sometimes with a bit of luck some small window, like say, a panel, gets displayed correctly. What's funny is, if you resize the window, the scaling of the texture seems to do the opposite - when enlarging the window, the window contents get smaller, and the other way around.
