--- Comment #28 from madbiologist <s.j.turner at uqconnect.net> ---
Better power management for AMD/ATI Radeon R600 and newer hardware is finally
available in the upstream 3.11 linux kernel. 

For people using Ubuntu, the first release candidate (3.11-rc1) of the 3.11
kernel is available at http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ and
instructions on how to install and uninstall it are available at

Fedora users can get the 3.11-rc1 kernel from Rawhide at
For more information about using Rawhide, see

Users of other Linux distributions will need to obtain the 3.11 kernel by other

For now, to use this power management for the AMD/ATI Radeon you will need to
select it at boot by adding radeon.dpm=1 to your GRUB kernel boot options as
described at
