Also known (in IBM literature) as....
- ATI Mobility RADEON
- ATI Rage Mobility RADEON M6
- ATI Rage Mobility RADEON M6MC

Linux driver - OpenSource
This adapter is supported by recent versions of the 'radeon' driver as found in X.Org and XFree86.
Display on the internal LCD works as long as you set the monitor settings correct.
For Xinerama to work properly on Fedora Core 4 you need to first configure it with the display tools, then manually add
- Option "MergedFB" "True"
- Option "MonitorLayout" "LVDS, CRT"
to the Videocard0 section.
External VGA port
Works fine with xorg radeon driver.

Linux kernel Framebuffer driver
- tested and working fine under gentoo

Problems (and Solutions)
Xorg & OpenGL
See http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-451151-highlight-.html for information on how to enable stable OpenGL support. Some of the tricks are:
- disable the console frame buffer.
- disable the hardware cursor in Xorg.
- plus some more.
NOTE: I (User:msoos) actually got DRI direct rendering with framebuffer and hardware cursor, without any fancy setting at all (apart from re-compiling the 2.6.16-9 with some more-or-less standard setting) on Debian testing.
