    ati radeon 9800 pro drivers


    i am running suse 9.2 and it did not support the radeon 9800 pro graphics card so i selected the 9700 pro instead and everything works fine accept for openGL support. Is there anyway for me to get drivers for my radeon 9800 pro so it will work and so i can have openGL support.

    You can go to ATI's website and download drivers from them.
    As far as I know there are a few people out there who were able to install them, even then they perform really badly. ATI simply doesn't care about Linux users. Nvidia on the other hand is great.

    I have tried to install ATI drivers for my 9800pro on FC3, but no luck.

    it is possible to get them working, there are some third party drivers floating around that work prety good (your 9800 pro will run simular to a 9000 though) i have no idea were to find them anymore...

    What about the rpms? Doesn't http://rpm.livna.org have some rpm you can just download or something? I think it only works with yum though...they might have apt.
