Hi, I've noticed a lot of people trying to get radeons with R300 and
newer cores working with FreeBSD and 3D acceleration. At least there's
been a fair few unanswered requests for it for a while now.

So, does anyone know when the newer ati drivers will be put in the x.org
port, or when that will be updated.

I've managed to shoehorn a newer ati driver into the old port and now
have sort of working 3D on 6.2-PRERELEASE/amd64 with an x700 mobility.

If it's going to be a while before this is integrated into FreeBSD
and anyone wants patches I could make it available, but it might
need more work for i386 and it's a bit of kludge to get parts of
the newer modular X into our 6.9.whatever port.
