Either radeon or radeonhd should be fine. Feature-wise, they are at the same level. No other changes are required. Very recently DRM support was added for those cards, giving them much faster 2D acceleration via EXA (without DRM support, only XAA is supported) and Xv support as well. Unfortunately, this is limited to linux at the moment, but I *believe* Robert Noland has begun investigating how to port those changes over. -- This message has been scanned for viruses and dangerous content by MailScanner, and is believed to be clean. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
