Re: x86_64 and Radeon 9600

It works for the 9600SE as well. Make sure you take all defaults when the install script runs. I didn't the first time and it brought up the basic window manager (not sure what the name of it is, but there was no task bar, just 3 ugly terminal windows). I didn't know how to fix that and didn't have much to lose so I just reinstalled RH9 and tried it again.

There was no 'ATI Radeon 9600SE' listed in the Display application so I selected 'ATI Radeon AGP' instead.

How do I enter it in bugzilla so it's assigned to FC2?

On the eMachines M6805 notebook, which uses a Radeon 9600 Mobility, compiling XFree86 or later results in a working Radeon driver. You might try the same approach for the desktop card and see what happens.

The reason this is required stems from the Mobility chips being somewhat
different from their desktop counterparts.  They are essentially new chips,
and the driver was not present in the Fedora Core timeframe.  The 9600SE is
in the same boat... It says 9600, but is not nearly the same chip as the
full 9600 series.  If it works in 4.3.99.x bugzilla it and hopefully the
driver will be backported to FC2.
