    Saphire (ATI) X700 Pro video Card


    Hi,

    Is there a driver patch I can download for this video card?

    Or how do I setup this card properly in linux? What card and features should I enable in the kernel?

    Is there a special configuration for X.org?

    Thanks.

    I am using Mepis.

    I was just getting some issues in KDE that were graphics related.

    I found the solution though. By default, Xorg used the vesa driver, and I found that the radeon driver works for this card. So I changed it and everything is working fine now.

    Thanks.

    jeeplvr4u I have a ATi brand x700 pro (agp) and i have having problems getting 3d acceleration working. I got the ATi propritary drivers and installed them via their .rpm but I'm really new to the whole linux thing and I'm not sure what step I should take next. I'm in the process of doing so research on the subject so hopefully I can get it solved before anyone replys.
