Ok, I'm going straight into the facts.
I have 2 systems, 1 a laptop, 1 a desktop. Both have ATI graphics cards (xpress 200M & 9600XT respectively). Laptop has Gentoo, Desktop has Ubuntu Dapper.
Explain this. I try to run UT on either of those machines. The gameplay is great, though a little smudgy. But both machines have issues relating to 'input (mouse and/or keyboard) lag'. This is very apparent on the laptop, where UT is totally unplayable. The desktop machine has issues relating to the switching of resolutions. It won't get 800x600. It will get 640x480 or 1024x768, but the latter is on a weird refresh rate (like 80 instead of 60).
Not to mention that I can get perfect visuals with Q3A on the Desktop system, but no sound ever.
Is this just a case of the ATI-tis or UT unplayable on both distros.
This is really pissing me off, to the point of being aggro.
Some input or answers would be great.
