Apparently the new catalyst drivers (9.4) which are out soon will drop all support for any chip older than the R500. So, if you have anything below an ATI 2400 running, you are SOL.
Now here is the big catch. The new Xorg server that is also coming out, requires that if you use ATI drivers that you have to use a minimum of Catalyst 9.4, or that you use the xf86-video-ati drivers. While this my not be a problem for some it will be for others who require the ATI drivers for games and other activities because the Open Source drivers do not work.
