  • 30-bit Color - FirePro - Linux

    Is it possible to enable the FirePro 30-bit color support on Linux?

    I tried setting Depth 30 in xorg.conf and got the not-unexpected error:
    Code:
    (EE) fglrx(0): Given depth (30) is not supported by fglrx driver
    I am using the 8.72.11 driver on Ubuntu 10.04.

    And before anyone asks, I do have a 30 bit LCD.

    If you have those uber expensive toys, you need Windows 7 to play with them. Linux won't get you anywhere. Even if it opens 30 bit display mode, what ''APPLICATION'' can you use to utilize that? On Windows we have the legendary Photoshop CS4, that not only utilizes 30 bit color depth, but also uses GPU to do the actual processing.

    On Linux, we only have gimp, what a piece of joke.

      Also, if you have a 30 inch S-IPS panel display with RGB-LED backlight, you might want 3 of them.

      Eyefinity on Windows works a lot better.

        simple question what are you doing here ?

        there are linux software with more bitdeph than photoshop4/5..

        Cinepaint can handle 64bit colorspace!

        Linix also can handle more displays than windows7

        windows7 is limited to 8 sceens and linux is limited to 24 screens

        and yes catylst 10-7 support 24 screens.. .
