Linux Open source 3D graphics drivers for ATI R600 garphics cards has been submitted to the kernel-next tree for possible inclusion in the Linux kernel 2.6.32. "David Airlie has pushed a horde of new code into his drm-next Git tree, which is what will get pulled into the Linux 2.6.32 kernel once the merge window is open. Most prominently, this new DRM code brings support for kernel mode-setting with R600 class hardware as well as 3D support."

Ah, SIGPIPE, bane of my job. My boss likes to solve all problems by popening onto external applications (from compiled C code)... which means that I get to spend a lot of time worrying about catching and handling SIGPIPE.

That and, if the graphics server or graphics driver dies, I think it's reasonable for the whole session and all running apps to go down. It's certainly not surprising. At least for me, the problem is that X goes down a lot, and isn't really stable, high-performance or bug- and glitch-free while it's up!
