Some Radeon Work

Post by satch » Sat Dec 16, 2006 23:23

I'm sorry to contradict you, but Sabayon Linux works at least with Radeon X1600 cards. You can check one of my posts about my strange config.
Anyway, I suppose it's dependent on boot options. You can check forum entries about that, or press F2 and F3 to check them upon boot.

I tried to use SL 3.2 DVD in my work computer, with a X550 Radeon (dual head), and boot hanged too. I would check boot parameters, but I'm on holidays.

I'll be happy to provide whatever debug files are necesary to troubleshoot ATI issues

Can you confirm if 3.25 with XGL is working well on X800?
I have X800 Pro [R423] and 3.2 worked fine; however 3.25 with XGL doesn't work anymore.
It might be a bad combination of X.Org 7.2 and ATI drivers, because I've had issues with OpenSuse 10.2 (X.Org 7.2 also) on the same machine. Other distributions that have older X.Org versions work well.
