Yes, it works wonderfully:
built against 22.214.171.124 pulled this morning (05:30 BST)
2.4.4-pre3 (BK yesterday)
Please note that "make World" fails for me (with build Servers only as an
option in host.def) [the mesa stuff, amongst other things falls over]
However, the drivers build and I copied ati_drv.o, ati_misc.o over Kaoru's
126.96.36.199-0b rpms. (I also copied libfbdevhw.a - but, of course, that no
+ no more flickering lines 2cm from left of screen
+ excellent scroll acceleration.
I'll do X11perf if you're interested - otherwise there's plenty of other
things to do... ;-)
1/ the cursor disappears after about 5 seconds __only__ when it's over the
active window (it stays there fine when over an inactive window or the
desktop) -- KDE 2.0beta.
2/ how difficult would it be to plumb the scroll acceleration back into the
console driver? (would one need access to the NDA stuff?) -- the scrolling
of console is a real problem in blocking sound :-/
thanks for the excellent work,
