Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 842194
Enable build of radeonsi driver
Last modified: 2012-08-02 13:01:52 EDT
Description of problem:
The new AMD Southern Islands video cards HD77xx have a new architecture and so require a new driver in order to do any thing beyond basic 2D. This driver is the radeonsi. This is a Gallium driver. This driver while a work in progress does already exist in the mesa-20120717 source tar ball. Currently the spec file does not enable building this driver. To enable it it might be as simple as changing
and then adding an entry to the spec file down in %files for it.
I am sorry I don't have a better understanding of the video stack or I would have tried to go farther before filing this. If you can build it on koji I can grab it from there and try it out before you push it to rawhide.
More info here.
