Updated xorg-x11-drv-ati packages that fix one bug and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The xorg-x11-drv-ati packages provide a driver for ATI graphics cards for the X.Org implementation of the X Window System.

Bug Fix

Previously, the hot plug detection and mode setting were not performed automatically. As a consequence, the user had to run the utility program to enforce the changes when plugging in multiple monitors. The driver has been updated, and the hotplug detection and mode setting now work as expected.


Support for new graphics processing unit (GPU) hardware has been added.

Support for hardware acceleration, including OpenGL, of the Radeon HD 7000 Series has been added.
