Parent article: The first ATI r5xx/6xx X11 driver release
My machine is running Fedora 7, and I manually installed the drivers from here a couple of weeks ago. I pulled the latest version (at the time) from their repository. When I bought this machine I followed the current conventional wisdom and went with an all-Intel model (intel video, intel audio, intel wireless, etc) because in theory everything would be supported by open source drivers. Unfortunately since it is such a new machine, the different bits are only just starting to get supported properly. I guess when I get a chance I will try redoing the install with a newer drop.
