X1600 Problems

Messages: 7

Hi everyone!
I use an AGP version (Sapphire, 256mb) of X1600, unfortunetely xvinfo returns

X-Video Extension version 2.2
screen #0
no adaptors present

This meens i won't have much luck with video playback, however I am interested if this problem is universal with X1600, or the problem can be solved

P.S. I use radeonhd, it does report that my card is unidentified in x.org logs

The driver does not support video overlay on your card, and textured video is only supported if direct rendering is enabled in the X server.

You can update the DRM from the freedesktop git, update to -CURRENT, or wait till the required changes are mfc'ed into the -STABLE branch once FreeBSD 7.1 is released.

Also, I have heard that the 'radeon' driver is better for video playback than the 'radeonhd' driver. However, it will also require that direct rendering be enabled in the X server.
