SabayonLinux 3.1 on Intel and ATi video cards (OSS drivers)

Post by lxnay » Tue Oct 10, 2006 8:37

Hey, welcome to this new section :) Today I noticed that the ATi freeze problem on my computer has been fixed too. So, after Intel and NVIDIA video cards, now even ATi ones (well, the ones supported by X.Org driver and its DRI) are AIGLX capable.
yay! ;)

Does this possibly include the Radeon X1600?

Radeon X1600 only works with proprietary video drivers.

Out of curiosity, is there anywhere I could look up what drivers work with what cards? I have an x800GTO which I got for my windows box for gaming, and it has been an absolute struggle in linux finding proper drivers. Where is the best place to look for this info?

[email protected] I have 8.29.6 and a x800GTO and runs XGL+beryl perfectly.
For DRI capable ,only have to launch Xorg server and disable Xgl (for me in KDMRC script).

ATI :evil:
May you burn in hell my friend who has betrayed me!!!!
May windoze be your undoing, and AMD be your savior!!!!
May your path of Sh**ty drivers, be the road to realization!
May your reality be soon realized that Linux RULEZ YOU!!!
