Nightwulf|work: hi all
desti: is this project really dead at all? http://techrights.org/2010/05/07/radeonhd-ati-driver-and-rht/
yangman: we haven't had a feature addition in months and SUSE pulled it from its default install, so I think that speaks for itself more than any official announcements
xeer0: Hi! I've got Ati HD2400 which should support video scaling. I have activated restricted driver. Yet when I make a video fullsceen it suddenly drops to 1-2 fps. How is open source driver on this?
agd5f: xeer0: open drivers support Xv just fine
xeer0: xeer0: Yeah, I found radeonhd drivers in synaptic, but everything else bogged down, but scaling worked, though. But I also lost sound over HDMI. I think I'll have to bite the dust and buy a more linux-compatible video card ... my hd2400 is from my windows era
xeer0: ^ agd5f
chithead: xeer0: open source drivers should give you xv acceleration out of the box on recent distros, without having to touch anything "restricted" or needing to install extra packages
chithead: actually many people worsen their configuration by installing those extra packages
xeer0: chithead: Does those drivers supply sound over HDMI as well?
chithead: hdmi audio is supported with the latest code from git. I expect that it will work in fedora 13 and maybe in ubuntu 10.04
xeer0: Ok, I'll have to reinstall ubuntu, everythings messed up now. Sound is gone even with the fglrx drivers back, and ccc won't open. So when I reinstall, I'll try displaying video without touching the drivers
xeer0: That probably won't work (haven't dont it before). After that, would http://wiki.x.org/wiki/radeonBuildHowTo#xf86-video-ati.28ddx.29 be the next to try?
xeer0: haven't dont it = haven't worked before (with 9.10)
xeer0: Ok, I'm doing a fresh install of ubuntu 9.04 now, just to try something that has worked before. What is the first driver I should install if it doesnt scale video out of the box?
xeer0: ^ati hd 2400
xeer0: Now I have installed 9.04, which solved the xvideo scaling problems. What has changed from 9.04 to 10.04 with regard to xvideo scaling and my gfx card ati hd 4200?
