Lightkey has recently left us in an attempt to conquer several countries in Central Europe on his new bicycle, therefore I step in to bring you the news about the latest ATI display driver, version 8.29.6. If you happen to own one of the following products
- Radeon® 8500/9000/9100/9200/9250
- Mobility™ Radeon® 9000/9100/9200
- Radeon® IGP 9000/9100/9200
you can forget about downloading, as the support for these older cards has been cancelled and there seem to be no plans for anything of the NVIDIA‘s legacy driver sort, so you can either stick to the previous release or choose the free-as-in-speech drivers provided by your favourite distribution.
In other news, the 2.6.18 kernel is now officially supported and several bugs have been resolved. The fine folks over at Phoronix have some warm, affectionate words on the driver to share, so you might want to look at those as well.
