  • How about the recently released 10.6 drivers? Isn't the new 2D acceleration feature complete-ish?

    • Yes, but when I made that post they were soon-to-be-released, not recently-released

      • Ahh, it's all clear now, thanx much. I'm on ubuntu right now using ubuntu's open source drivers, lag free. When the new drivers come out, i'll give them a spin. I haven't even come close to diving into Wine yet, i'm still trying to work out the indicator applet. It's more complicated than it seems on the surface, i haven't grasped its power. One step at a a time eh.
        I must thank you all again for taking the time to answer all my questions, and so quickly too.

        • wow

          Well this thread has spiraled way off course since I started it.

          Ok, so where can I find ALL the WORKING patches I need to install the ati drivers for linux (using the ATI installer), against my 2.6.34 system? As I said in the original OP, I have had this issue with using pretty much any kernel beyond 2.6.28 and have had to scavenge around the net for patches.

          I don't feel like having to wad through 1000 pages of posts. Perhaps someone should start a thread on this, make it sticky, and have it purely for patches only, so they don't get lost in the thousands of posts.

            kano's script has fixed it. I missed that post on the first page.
