This driver is renamed from xserver-xorg-video-amd. The rename took place
by unanimous decision of the upstream development team, to avoid confusion
with ATI products that were recently purchased by AMD.
The code is still the same as xserver-xorg-video-amd, but the filenames and
the package name in configure.ac were changed to reflect the renaming.
The code also includes a fallback that allows it to respond to an xorg.conf
that requests the "amd" driver.
This source package will therefore include transitional packages that allow
users who already have xserver-xorg-video-amd to automatically pull the new
Likewise, the xserver-xorg-video-amd source package will be removed from the
Debian archive as soon as the first xserver-xorg-video-geode upload is done.
