    "Work well," is an understatement. It locks the machine hard. Forget doing HDTV, which even little Shuttle boxes do these days.

      • Well you can try the pts iso in 2 ways:

        a) without option -> uses radeonhd (1.2.0 + 1 git patch as compile fix)

        b) with: live fglrx -> uses 8-3 as driver (currently)

        http://debian.tu-bs.de/project/kanot...tix-ng-pts.iso
        http://debian.tu-bs.de/project/kanot...ng-pts.iso.md5

        It has a nice game on it too Designed to run the PTS in live mode. With working internet connection via router you can also boot with

        live fglrx=8.40.4

        or

        live fglrx=8.39.4

        to force older drivers directly on bootup.

            I have some questions...
            What is PTS?
            Does this distribution has an opportunity to run latest fglrx with good performance?

            • So, the new driver is out. The performance with it is better, but not enough to say "good".

              • PTS stands for Phoronix Test Suite - a live cd for benchmarking - and you can play NEXUIZ for testing.

                  Thanks for your comment.
                  After your comment I understood that it`s better if I`ll stay using radeonHD and there is no necessary to try new fglrx 8.4 driver instead radeonhd.
                  Still waiting new "good" fglrx...

                  • Got a quick question: since the only guide I can find is from September of last year, how would I install the radeonHD drivers? Is that guide still relevant, and if yes, do I literally copy what it says to type into the konsole?

                    And to summarize, does radeonHd have drivers for an HD2600XT AGP, or am I going to be continually waiting.

                    For what it's worth, I'm a bit dense on linux, so be gentle. If I ask a dumb question, I'm probably not trying to make a joke.

                      yes if you mean this one: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...item=843&num=1

                      I am using the 1.2.1 Radeonhd just fine on my H.I.S. 2600XT AGP 512MB GDDR3 IceQ Turbo
