    Just use a different DE which doesn't need composite. KDE 4 can disable it, GNOME 3 can not. Für 2d incl. xv it should be really fast enough.

      Good catch, Kano. Running a compositor on that hardware would make for a great big pile of slow.

        was sort of able to figure out what went wrong with the open source driver


        the old ati cards, everything from before 2005 (cannot verify this) should be using XAA acceleration and the radeon OSS drivers default to EXA acceleration

        there are also more stuff you can change in xorg configuration but I will have to back some stuff up before I trying messing with X as it tends to break
