It is what it is, "change is good", "software development is about
enforcing changes", etc ;-) Long story short, the new way is to use
evdev / libinput and the drm-kmod + modesetting instead of old ati /
intel drivers. Xorg modesetting should autoconfigure for you. You may
try the old drivers with the older hardware but I found them
problematic. New ati driver is called AMDGPU and you also need to
install firmwares package. It works for me on desktop with RADEON
RX580 with some tuning on UEFI. On laptop I use Intel drm driver. I
also use hald and dbus.
