afaik you may also need to add "nomodeset" to your boot line in order to enable 3d acceleration.

amandus,

read a few posts up in this thread, and apply the "nomodeset" in the grub configuration, then

Code: Select all

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg


that's the other key as I recall.

good luck!

What I did:

Code: Select all

equo remove xf86-video-ati
equo remove x11-drivers/ati-drivers-12.10#3.7.0-sabayon
equo install sys-kernel/sabayon-sources-3.7-r3
equo install x11-drivers/ati-drivers-12.10#3.7.0-sabayon
reboot and done :D

no need to add nomodeset to grub or do something else. Removal of xf86-video-ati may be unnecessary but is the first thing I did :mrgreen:
