ATI Radeon 9600.

But ah well

Um, excuse me. I spent half a weekend a few weeks ago, of my own personal time backporting support for Radeon 9200/9600/9800 from XFree86 CVS along with patches donated by ATI, and a bunch of my own hacking efforts. I have posted numerous times to these mailing lists requesting people to TEST this new support out and to REPORT BUGS and issues with hardware that does not detect yet.


I love the new XF86 packages, they "just work" with my ATI Radeon 9000 Mobility laptop chipset. Autodetected during install, allowed me to set the
resolutions and color depths I wanted with no problems.
The accelerated stuff like Chromium and TuxRacer work well,
and the screen can go into "power save" mode (blank and backlight off)
just fine. Love it.

BTW, support you whole heartedly, have a bugzilla account, but haven't
had problems that didn't already have ticket numbers (or that weren't big breaking
news anyway).
