    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    I have a Radeon 9000 Mobility, and it works fine with the proprietary ATI drivers. I haven't tried svideo out yet though.

    Hi
    i have the same Grafic-card for my sony vaio PCG-GR250P.And i could it only make it work with Opensuse 10.1.
    Code:
    #lspci|grep Radeon
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M6 LY
    and someone told me that:
    'There's no support for that card in fglrx. Use the DRI project drivers instead.'

    but i don't know how do i do that.

    just cause someone told you doesn't mean it's true. Look at ati's webpage and see if you can find any info. If not download the proprietary drivers and just see if they work sometimes even if a card is not officially supported it will work. Lastly you can use the dri projects "radeon" driver which does have direct rendering support. Look for a "dri wiki" or something for your distro it takes some playin around but basically you need to have dri enabled in the kernel and your agpgart support. and the correct lines in your xorg.conf

    well when you emerge the ati-drivers please post any errors if any. Then when you run fglrxconfig command post any errors any. Then when you have the fglrx driver in your xorg.conf file try startx and post any errors from

    /var/log/Xorg.0.log

    you can do that by

    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | less
