AMD Open Source Hardware Acceleration

Postby Chocrates on Sat May 03, 2014 12:46 pm

I am trying to uninstall my FGLRX drivers and go back to the open source ones. I have them installed (i think) but am getting the software rendering error and glxinfo says i am using llvmpipe, which i think is the software rasterizer.

I thought the open source drivers had hardware accleration. If that is true, can anyone help me get them installed?
