ATI 200m and Linux Open Source

It appears that they've discovered how to initialize the memory on the 200M with Xf86 linux drivers now. According to http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/ATIRadeon



[*]Radeon XPRESS 200/200M IGP

Broken memory initialisation for 2D/3D. ( git version has fixes for this since june 2007, needs more testing on differing models )"




I'd be willing to sort this out especially if any other developers are willing to help out, my coding skills are a bit rusty. I think once we get the memory initialized on these then we can sort out what OpenGL calls we're going to have to override if we need to, if that's possible?


Anyway, I think it's worth looking into. There are a lot of really good, really cheap laptops that come with the 200m, and even more coming out that make great hackintosh's. I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 and have everything work 100% almost out of the box except the QE/CI.


If anyone has any good experience going over the xf86 ati drivers let me know.
