I'd be happy to try and test your code on my RV535 chipset. I'm
running Ubuntu 8.04, and willing to update/compile my own packages.

If you can give me the directions on how to pull and compile your
changes, I'd be happy to give them a whirl.

I do too. Here's my initial attempt at a set of notes for getting,
building and installing all the latest parts for the RadeonHD stuff,
so I could at least help by testing stuff. Obviously, I ran out of
time and energy, since it's not well documented.

I can't believe that the RadeonHD developers don't have this written
down somewhere ,since I know I'd forget it all pretty darn quickly.

Any additions, or corrections appreciated.

You'll want the latest r500 stuff. the latest stuff is in mesa git on
the r500-support branch:

git clone git://
git checkout -b r500-support origin/r500-support

Getting the latest DRM/DRM code: 2008-04-29

- VERSION = uname -f

here again, this is old. You want drm master (no branch):
git clone git://
