I have an old ATI radeon M card in my laptop and i am confused about if i should try the separate drivers? I know xorg just included better ATI drivers and ATI annouced they were opening their source (?) anyone knwo what is going on?
:? Hi dibblewrecker, I'm having the same problem, same laptop.
I used the ATI RADEON generic in xorg, don't know if it's
working properly or not.
I had widget installed on the c610 for about 6 months, worked
fine. I just finished formatting and reinstalling, using the same
disc(widget). I then did a pacman -Syu before downloading
xorg and kde. I'm now running wombat. I used hwd -s to get
the info to use in xorgconfig, and copied the info from
xorg.conf.hwd to xorg.conf.
What's bothering me is I have to use 1024 x 768 screen
resolution instead of 800 x 600, which I prefer. If I try to
change it to 800 x 600 the screen goes ka-flueey. I can't
shutdown properly and have to kill the system with the
I also just did the same procedure on a IBM t-23 and it
worked fine. I'm typing this from the c610, so it seems to be
working, but I think something is still not right.
Anybody know what is going on??? -- Thanks -- Larry
