Description Alexander van Loon 2013-01-25 04:12:08 EST
Description of problem:
After the installation of F18 on my computer, which has an AMD Radeon HD7850, the very slow LLVMpipe driver was used. "Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x301)" to be exact according to "Details" in GNOME's "System Settings". It would seem to be more logical to use the xorg-x11-drv-ati driver. However, after some searching I'm doubting if the HD7850 is already supported? According to http://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature the Southern Islands family (which the HD7850 belongs to) doesn't have 3D support yet, does that mean it doesn't work with the xorg-x11-drv-ati driver?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
7.0.0 0.8.20121015gitbd9e2c064.fc18

Using F19 now, which has a proper open source driver for this video card.
