Radeon 9600 Pro Support?
I'm really starting to get a little annoyed. I have a Radeon 9600 Pro (rv350 / M10). I've been trying to get this to work for about three weeks now. I've tried Mandrake, and Debian. I got Debian to work for a little while, but no 3D support. How can I get my card to work on linux? It works great with Windows XP. As much as I hate Windows, if I can't get my $200 video card to work, I'm going to give up on Linux. Come on guys, you gotta help me out!
have u tried installing the readeon 3.2.8 driver from www.ati.com
I was only able to make my card work on 2.6 kernel using ati's driver. If you want, I can post my kernel and x config for you.
sweet, im a newbie, could you post how to install the kernel, and driver etc?
Certainly is a pain!
I was running SuSE 9 on my old Radeon, and then when I bought a 9600pro, 3d acceleration went down the pan.
I'm now back on XP.
Yeah getting my 9600 pro to have 3d accell was kind of a pain, just have to find the right documentation.
i have saphire 9600 pro and its working in 3d accel. now at LAST :)
i use libranet 2.8 and i download and compiled kernel 2.4.23 then i downloaded and installed the latest ati driver fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.7.0.i386.rpm
After completing your X configuration using fglrxconfig, press CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE to restart X.
i hope it works for u also as i also now the pain to make it work but libranet 2.8 is the BEST
