    Hi.

    Thanks for the review of the card. It went straight into the shopping basket

    However I wanted to do the test myself on my current setup so I downloaded the phoronix-test-suite and ran as suggested on page nine of the test: ./phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1102134-IV-SENSORS4225

    Since I'm new to this I have probably missed something, but no tests were run. Below is the output of the try

    Code:
    jpe@ubuntu:~/Hämtningar/phoronix-test-suite$ ./phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1102134-IV-SENSORS4225
    
    Phoronix Test Suite v3.0.0

            The test executable for pts/unigine-heaven-1.2.0 could not be located.
    Any hints to what I need to do in order to get this to work?

      Update on oss drivers for HD6870?

      Hi,
      I've been thinking of buying a HD6870. Could anyone give an update on how oss drivers work atm? I use linux(gentoo+gnome) on daily activities(browsing,videos etc) but gaming is mainly on windows 7 so 3d is not that essential on linux. I mainly care that gnome(and usual programs) works just fine with compositing (using metacity's compositor ).
