new ati drivers

Post by mebitek » Wed Oct 24, 2007 17:06

as u can see new ati drivers 8.42.3 have been released...
some problems compiling with my system. I have a 2.6.23 kernel x86_64 and this drivers will not compile on that kernel series. I found a patch that promise to work with 2.6.23 kernel but nothing happens...

my ati video card is mobility x2300

someone have tried this drivers???

I don't think you've read....I've said those latest drivers are in our overlay PATCHED AND WORKING!!!!! if you have a sandbox problem for compiling them since you don't have our sabayon-sources kernel simply write

Code: Select all

FEATURES="-sandbox" emerge ati-drivers
