A line in the sand for graphics drivers

https://lwn.net

Support for certain classes of hardware has often been problematic for the Linux kernel, and 3D graphics chips have tended to be at the top of the list. Over the last few years, through a combination of openness at Intel and AMD/ATI and reverse engineering for NVIDIA, the graphics problem has mostly been solved - for desktop systems.

The problems with ATI graphics and Ubuntu 7.10

http://blogbeebe.blogspot.com

I've had a Sapphire ATI X1950 Pro video card for over 30 days now, and it's crossed my mind more than once to send it back to Newegg and get an nVidia replacement.

http://www.phoronix.com

The open-source Avivo driver is currently bound to supporting the ATI R500 GPU family and with efforts now being focused on the RadeonHD driver, this reverse-engineered driver will likely never support the newer GPUs (The Death Of The R500 Avivo Driver). However, the RadeonHD driver that was pushed out into the public a few hours ago does support the R600 series.

ATI R200 Linux Driver Redux

http://www.phoronix.com

While ATI/AMD claim that they provide enough support for developing open source ATI Radeon drivers, developers of open source drivers tell a much different story. Very few of them have specifications, and those are stripped down and a lot of needed information is missing from them so they have to use time-consuming error-prone reverse engineering.

GNU/Linux - Avoid ATI Video Cards

http://forums.whirlpool.net.au

We need to give ATI some bad press. Unlike NVIDIA, they refuse to provide driver support for GNU/Linux. They can't continue to get away with this: Many Windows users are starting to want GNU/Linux compatible hardware, because they have "the switch" in mind.
