    ati card slide show


    I know I am asking for massive cerebral hemorrhaging by even trying, but does any one know how to get a radeon 9700 working with 3d support.

    I am running slack 10.2 on a 2.4 kernel
    I used the "new and improved" ati installer to get my card running

    I tried installing return to castle wofenstein to test it, and it was a freaking slide show. I had to drop to a command prompt outside of x just to shut it down.

    thnx
