Well, in the mean time, I've just copied the radeon and ati driver from the 6.8.1
build to /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers, and it more or less works.
Now the only problem is that GL applications hang... When I set LIBGL_DEBUG
to verbose, it looks like it's hanging when trying to open
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/r200_dri.so... Must be a problem when mixing the
6.7.0 server with the 6.8.1 3D drivers.
I'm curious if there's anyone working on getting 6.8.1 to build and run on
