Re: best video card for fedora 10



I don't have much faith in Fedora to be able to run ATI cards. I have Fedora on an Intel motherboard with the integrated video, and that one works 100%, with no fiddling,  now having to install firmware, or do esoteric things.

My ATI eah3450 card is accepted with Firmware (Proof is that under ubuntu it works 100%) but under Fedora, I cannot get it to work with compiz or with as many combinations of resolutions and horizontal sweep frequencies.  I wish I was able to lift the video stuff from Ubuntu and install it in Fedora.

I believe that it may work with R500 cards in Fedora 10. It looks like
I'll be stuck on Fedora 8 for the foreseeable future, so I haven't
tried
testing it.

I also suspect that a dual-head setup may disable it.

Couldn't get dual-head to work with the radeon driver.
