I've been following video card stuff regarding the various flavors of
Radeon and Geforce, but not too closely.
I hear that the Radeon 8500 is only supported in the CVS versions of
XFree86. (Either that or the 7500, but I'm pretty sure it's the 8500.)
I *think* there's a Sourceforge-project-whose-name-I-can't-recall that's
working on this too. From a quick Google search (try "radeon
site:.sf.net"), I came up with http://gatos.sf.net/ -- I *think* that's
the one that I heard of. Or it looks like TV capture stuff. Well, you
might want to try
Short answer: No, it's not supported in the current release version.
