Petition ATI: Demand better drivers!
I'm sure many of you running laptops with ATI cards or the latest and greatest AIW have the common problems. If you can get your ATI card working, it runs like a GeForce2MX. Drivers for the TV Tuner? Hell no. Drivers for my mobile card? Dream on, sucka.
Make a difference: petition ATI for better Linux drivers. This site is a start:
There are just over 19000 signatures already. Even if you don't run an ATI card, you should help out. :wink:
If you feel that this isn't enough, email ATI directly. Eventually they'll have to turn their ears to the Linux communities pleas for support. Nvidia did and they have excellent 3D support under Linux. I've used both Nvidia and ATI cards personally. My ATI card (AIW9600) is sluggish running Neverwinter Nights; my GeForce4 Ti4600 ran it flawlessly under the same settings (max visual effects). The Ti4600 was new in Q1-2002. The AIW9600? Q1-2003 with newer tech and twice the RAM.
An email including this type of information from users across the Linux community is sure to get the attention of the suits at ATI. 8)

What about the GATOS drivers for ATI tv cards i know they dont support all features but they work? And my ATI mobile worked fine under Linux.
