I love you guys for putting this wiki entry together and maintaining the repositories with the Catalyst driver and the patched mplayer with support for hardware acceleration. It would have taken me many, many hours to make it work as flawlessly as it does.

XvBA-Video Repository

Note to editors: DO NOT REMOVE that since it works and helps users getting it working!

Why keep it around if the information is obsolete now?

deleted note on nomodeset warning

the nomodeset option si mandatory using catalyst, cause this driver doesn't support kms. The note is useless. 4javier 07:50, 25 April 2011 (EDT)

HD 6870

I think the problems with Radeon HD 6870 are outdated, I use that graphics card and I didn't have any problems at all, even OpenCL works fine. -- Lykos42 14:04, 14 March 2012 (EDT)

I cannot speak for speak for the HD 6870 but I can confirm that the problem still exists for the E-350 (APU with a HD 6310), and that the posted solution works if the device name is changed (and perhaps without changing it, I didn't test). I have therfore removed the disputed banner and generalized the answer. (As is suspect the fix works for virtually any "unsupported" device). If someone could confirm the naming scheme for the Xorg identifier I would appreciate it. --Eric Vuhl (talk) 12:19, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
