Hi again ... sorry my delay !!
Since i try to end up with success, about what i was talking previous ...here on this posting = still missing at least a [Solved] !! ...because i know, how important that is, "don't forget that" is in my mind. In real life mostly, on Sabayon Linux (sometimes
) things develop different as expected ...though afterwards often to see, how "reality" teaches the best way ... Sabayon Linux is more "Smart & Nice" towards "Linux Newbies" as those "normally" would expect …:) Thanks to Ixnay + Developers + Community again !!
Last week i saw KDE 4.9.3 updates hit Sabayon Limbo Repos + reaching Sunday Night on Sabayon main (stable) Repositories. Causing this "upgrade" ... i decided to wait with my "fglrx" switch ...altough i saw equo commandline changing ...in general i was using "Sulfur Entropy Store" before ... but since 2 days ... with new amazing:"Ixnay Supertalent Code Developement" !!
i started to "like" what i was a bit "afraid before" = changing / installing / updating Sabayon Linux, using only „equo“ Commands in root Console = ... i like the "new Syntax" because:
easy to learn + light + all Essentials included the same as powerful + stable + efficient + working speed !!
"Commandline" Newbies like me ...following today with fascination "equo upgrade -v -a" Beauty MultiColor Code Upgrade Process KDE 4.9.2 - 4.9.3 on Konsole ... in between of "Bits & Bytes" (dancing over my Screen) there is to see some additional emerge / Portage Tips + short HowTo's. For me a bit irritating, while i am only using "equo commands" ...although a Newbie wants to learn first "Entropy only" methods.
Anyway, my delay here seems to have a sense ... i recognized watching this amazing Upgrade today, how many optimations are coming along with it ... "Equo" commandline looks "less" on the first quick view + gives "more" on a second view ... Since i saw this today ... Rigo = cool for quick "inbetween" installing / update ...but to many Mouse - Klicks have to be done compared to new "equo" in Commandline !!
Back to Headline of this posting: still i believe = Mesa devel ATI Gallium Drivers = cool !! they work as a Opensource Driver "great" + "easy out of the box" on Sabayon 10 !!
Getting fglrx ATI drivers to work, is the best solution for some "Hardware accellerated" Video encoding / opencl / Stuff + latest OpenGL extensions + optimized 3D (Game) speed a "must have" for me !! specially for Video encoding.
Today while watching Sabayon real " magic of (new) equo commands"
... updating Sabayon kernel 3.6 r1 - 3.6 r3 afterwards automatic update "grub + config files " with "auto inbuild intelligence" + a perfect reboot to a updated KDE Desktop
... everything seems to work perfect !! i got "in touch" again with Sabayons "Newbie friendly" Distro inbuild behaving !!
Now ...with new "improvements" and better KDE !! ...beside a lot of other things i have todo at the moment ... The "switch" to AMD fgrlx Drivers: is indeed what i never managed until now on Linux ... therefore, only "safely methods" i want to try ... unlike this Wiki: https://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?titl ... in_Sabayon
Same as some "Gentoo fgrlx install methods" not written for Linux Newbies, i suggest.
(Funny) Detail beside: since i am still frightened about manual fglrx install ... other Linux Newbies (maybe) similar. Previously, i had Sabayon "out of the box" fglrx drivers running ... i suggest: there must be a "simple and easy "Entropy only" !! installation method, beside the Gentoo way ! Also on Kernel 3.6 + "nomodeset"
According my "previous postings" ... i still have the idea for a little "HowTo Guide" ... as a said before: Maybe this exists already, i could not find it until now (!!) ... "Best Off" Web/Wiki /Forum Links already describing: "Safely non - Portage" (!!) fglrx - installation" including actual !! HOWTO's in case it goes "wrong" ... from scratch & easy to understand & Step by Step Method ... what is all ToDo, to prepare ,to think at ?? before a (safely) reboot into working "fglrx graphic-drivers" !
Any good Tips + Web (Wiki) links + "Newbie compatible" HowTo's = would be helpfull now for me.
Meanwhile Mesa is still "cool" + has a better 2D Performance !
After all frustration = i have too and i want too (!) learn + understand "Propietary" ATI Driver Installation on new Sabayon Kernels.
Because (funny detail beside, isn't it
) this exactly was, how i started to like Sabayon = "easiest fglrx out of the box" i ever saw on a Linux Distro !!
Sorry again ! ...from a special "green" + (a bit) stupid /(:-)) - Baby Chicken ...maybe hardly "understanding" ...what other Newbies learn "quick & easy" ... (?) ... as i already said ... i will try to write a "easy HowTo" + Happy End here !!
Some "Technology Hens" here ... probably start to laugh ... maybe i am (?) too stupid for understanding "easy commands"
Please remember: Everything about Linux/Unix "Bits & Bytes", is maybe "super easy" after you learned it ... but until you reach that point, it can be "sometimes difficult + abstract" ... especially for "Newbies" !! Focussing now: easy + safely + learn success = afterwards: ""easier as i thought"" = Linux getting more popular !!
User, brings after a while people (friends, frustrated Windows Users searching for alternatives etc.) towards "using Linux" = "a better future is possible"
Find/write a Mini - Guide as i described ... this kind of "Special Guide" it is, what i am looking for, since first steps on Linux some Months ago ... due to a lot of "frustration with other Distros" until my first
"Super easy out of the Box" fglrx running expierience = End of August 2012, Sabayon Linux KDE amd64 with Kernel 3.5 r7 ...without any switching/driver changing ... described in my initial "first posting" here in forum: viewtopic.php?f=86&t=27976
Give me some more Days … + any „helpful“ links i am collecting now ... Thanks ! for any „clear + easy + „Baby Hen“ compatible Tips / Infos / Weblinks ... KISSmeEASY + HowTo „tune up“ a „Sabayon Linux Ferrari“ !!
Optimal working video drivers is that, where i only want to go !!
