Re: My initial experiances with FC2-test2



I've tried xorg's generic radeon driver, and it worked fine! Gave it a good try for a day, and haven't found any glitches.. My vote would be to include the chipset id in hwdata :-)

Ps, performance is ofcource a bit slower then the ati drivers, but i think for most ppl 'just works' is preferable over 'if you perform this voodoo magic it might work, and a little faster' :-)

Thanks for the hints,

1) My machine is currently equiped with a ATI Radeon 9800XT card, XFree86 (scrap that, xorg nowadays) has no support for it, and your forced to run in VESA mode. While this is fine for a server machine where you only run the occasional vnc server or a system-config-... tool, for a workstation it's just to damn dog slow..


Can you trying using the radeon driver with xorg-x11? Although hwdata stuff hasn't been updated yet, the radeon driver in xorg-x11 should support a lot of the newer stuff (at least for 2d).
