Some time has passed since ATI released specs and since the initial free and open version of a new driver was announced. So I thought I'd take a look since most of my boxes are all ATI based.
git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/driver/xf86-video-radeonhd sudo apt-get install xorg-dev ./autogen.sh ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc make && sudo make install
Then just change your _xorg.conf _file for the new radeonhd driver and be done with it. Works like a charm here, congrats to everyone involved ;)
