What Works

- Using xf86-video-ati the following works:

What Does Not Work

As of Catalyst 10.7, the new ATI 2D Acceleration Architecture causes black rectangle corruption. (See ATI bugs #1839 and #1845)

Currently, the fix involves reverting back to the old XAA acceleration. To do this run the following as root:

aticonfig --set-pcs-str=DDX,ForceXAA,TRUE

What Has Not Been Tested

  • Bluetooth
  • HDMI Audio
