I've written the spell on a 64 bit architecture and the modular
xorg-server, and I didn't invest much into the non-modular X
versions, as they are going to be deprecated anyway and I was a bit
tired after making the spell. According to amd it supports any one of
XOrg 6.7, 6.8, 6.9, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2 or 7.3; XFree86 version 4.3
However, the X detection logic is not quite complete (it's in a
devel branch for a reason), but I would really appreciate feedback on
the necessary settings for different X versions. This part really
needs improvement. One thing you need for sure is a 2.6.x version of the
If you are adventurous, you can add the xfree86 settings to the "case"
structure in PRE_BUILD (around line 51). I guess it is
ATI_XVERSION=x430. I don't know if that installs everything else to the
correct directories (again, the spell is in a devel branch).
I hope that was helpful. Please let me know of anything positive or
negative you find out.
