I new that the new ATI cards were supposed to be getting improved support,
that's why I got one.
However the man page for the radeon driver doesn't say anything about
support for anything past the R400 series. It might be nice if it at least
mentioned that R500 and/or R600 series support is under development so
we know that we should be testing that driver instead of the radeonhd
driver. Also, not even 2D is working now (at least for my card).
I should be able to file a bug against xorg-x11-drv-ati (that's the
correct component in this case?) tomorrow when I have access to the
Xorg.0.log file from the failed X start up.
