there is a preliminary driver available for ATI R500/R600 cards (aka
X1000 and higher) from the xorg git repository. For my laptop (ASUS
A6JE running i386 8.0-CURRENT), which has a Radeon Mobility X1450 card
* panel works in native resolution (1280x800)
* DVI out works. If I plug in a 1280x1024 monitor, I get 1280x800 on
both the panel and the monitor, but maybe my xorg.conf was wrongly
* VGA out works, but apparently only for monitors which support
reduced blanking. Other monitors are detected and set up, but
xorg-server bails out at the last moment.
As this driver is under development, there is no support yet for TV
out or 2d/3d acceleration.
I could make a local copy of the git sources and spam the PR database
with daily updates (the developers seem to be off in the weekend) for
Users might want to subscribe to radeonhd(at)opensuse(dot)org
