    Another release with no Xv support on amd64.
    Instead, they had their tremendously overqualified team of driver developers working on communicating error condictions in aticonfig.

    Every time I look to see what’s new in these releases all I see is you people complaining. If you think that these drivers are that bad either stop installing new versions or write them yourself. What, you can’t? Then stuff it.

    I think AMD will need about 6 months or so to get their linux code manageable. AMD has too much to gain to let linux suck on ATI’s drivers. Even if every directx coding canuck has to get his ass beat every hour on the hour, that code will either be open- or pristine.

    Anyone here have any idea how much amd server hardware is running linux? Most of it. I’ll bet the $60,000 bladeserver takes precedence over the $300 radeon card. Just a hunch.
