    Going for the ATI.2 Gatos 3D accel


    Okay, I've read just about everything I can for installing the ATI.2 Gatos driver to get 3D acceleration working. Can it possibly be as easy as simple as:

    Code:
    urpmi ati.2
    According to http://gatos.sourceforge.net/ati.2.php, I don't even have to change settings in my /etc/XF86config file?

    Perhaps I'm just to used to recompiling kernals, is it really this easy?

    BTW... How do I know if 3D accel is actually working?

    best way to tell if its working is install benchmarks, or you can just load a 3d game like tuxracer, and if its absurdly slow, then thats you answer.

    Thanks qub!

    That's exactly what happens. When I try TuxRacer, it's so dang slow I can't believe it. I'll try the ati.2 drivers tonight.

    Wish me luck!
