This is what I don’t get. Try out Mepis 6. Furthermore the Radeon driver supports some older chipsets that fglrx does not. Performance is crap which means fps in shatt, fps most other places but I get used to it, because I’m stubborn. The fglrx driver will not support the built-in Compiz feature in Ubuntu and we need Xgl to run our new version of Beryl with an ATI card. I’ll trade a few fps for a fast pointer.

This driver provides 2D and 3D acceleration in your video hardware. For too many years he has kept giving Linux honest tries and things mysteriously happen to sabotage his efforts.

Identifying your graphics card or APU First, check your graphic card name and chipset: Chipset Graphics cards and APUs So i guess what i would like is someone with the same video card to tell me how to install my video drivers properly.

I assume Peo is the culprit here, my xw is a bottom-of-the-barrel thing. You don’t even have to run it in OpenGL anymore For me, opengl is a bit faster.

Try out Mepis 6. Nvidia has probably gotten a half a dozen vard sales to me as an individual solely because of their Linux drivers. Few months ago I linx guttsy and i ran into a problem with my videocard, i tried to fix it many ways. The sad thing is that the opensource drivers are not comparable to proprietary drivers when it comes to 3D acceleration and, in my case, smooth windows compositing.


Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

Sep 25, Posts: The lagging mouse drove me crazy and caused me much harm in-game. Mon Dec 31, 3: I’ve been using ATI cards, primarily because they come in Thinkpads, for some time now. Still, it says it downloads the appropriate driver from the ATI site and the ati site doesn’t list my at their driver list If it’s any consolation I tried every conceivable way to get the X to work both with EnvyNG and manual attempts.

Can’t get anything above x in Windowsand I even reinstalled the OS May 21st, 3. The specifications ATI has released thus far have been regarding setting video modes and controlling the display outputs. See this page Recommended configuration for X.


The Hardy repositories will apparently have the new ones in them. Due to a lack of programming skills on my part this is the only way I can really contribute to such development. Peruse the Phoronix forums.

Jun 13th I really appritiate all your help, ill be sure to try it and ill post here for other ppls sake if it worked. Ok, no one with experience on the topic so i’ll take the save way and stick with nvidia once again. If you’re running 8.

What better way to learn? Yeah, the opensource drivers are always improving, linuz who knows when they’ll be ready for our cards although you may be lucky. Why there are dead links? I’ve noticed, when I was trying D3D for the cursor, that in instances the tradeoff was usually good because of the closed in environments that were simpler to render anyway.
