AMD articles: please review HCL and suggestion about SDB:RadeonHD

Andre Kaper en Edith Smit
Hello all,
 
 I'm still working on the AMD  articles (HCL and SDB).
 I edited the HCL:AMD article by copying hardware compatability info from the
 SDB:articles  and wish to go on, by deleting this information from the SDB
 articles themselves. I think this way the HCL article is easier to maintain.
 It is imho beyond our reach to maintain an updated article with every
netbook,
 desktop or laptop with AMD graphical hardware.
  So please review the HCL article. Then I know how to edit the SDB articles
 coering the drivers.
 
 I also have a suggestion for the SDB:Radeonhd article.
 Are there nowadays circumstances where you'd better use radeonhd instead of
 radeon? I think not, if I read this from the Xorg radeonhd wiki:
 Status 09/2010: Linux distributions, including Novell's openSUSE, have now
 abandoned radeonhd as the default driver, instead using the radeon driver.
 radeon has more features, including Kernel Mode-Setting support and more 3D
 support, and it supports all Radeon generation from original R100 Radeons to
 R800 Radeons (HD 5000 series). Radeonhd can be continued to be updated as
long
 as there are people find it useful.
 
 My suggestion would be to archive this page and to delete links from the
other
 AMD graphical hardware articles to this radeonhd article. I don't know how to
 archive a page, so perhaps someone can explain this shortly or perhaps do
this
 by him- or herself?
 
 Greetings and best wishes to all of you out there.

Hello all,

if you are looking for up to date information about AMD driver,
i would suggest to look into the German wiki:
https://de.opensuse.org/SDB:AMD/ATI-Grafiktreiber
Sebastian Siebert is as a openSUSE Member maintainer for AMD packageing
scripts and author of this wiki page.
He has also his own webpage: http://www.sebastian-siebert.de/


Best Regards

Wolfgang
