New Linux driver "ati-driver-installer-8.29.6.run"

Discussion in 'ATI' started by Tony DiMarzio, Sep 22, 2006.

  1. Wow..... finally!

    This is the first Linux driver that I have gotten to work, at all, with my
    X1900XTX. I have tried the previous 4 linux driver releases with nothing but
    frustration (X server tries to start then the monitor goes blank and stays
    that way until reboot). This one was just, 1, 2, 3, done. X starts no
    problem. Even managed to modify AA and VSync settings and play the UT2K4
    demo :)

    I think ATI is finally reaching acceptable Linux support. Now they have to
    add a GUI Control Panel to modify all the XF86Config and xorg.conf settings
    so I don't have to do this shit off the cmd line.
