  • 6850 on Ubuntu Oneiric

    I'm considering upgrading to 6850. Anyone know if it works fine out of the box (open drivers) on Ubuntu Oneiric 11.10? I don't care about 3D, except to the degree that Compiz does.

    Or if you know 6870 works/doesn't, I'll take that too imply the same for 6850.

    Alternatively, I might be persuaded to rely on fglrx, if it's possible to get real video acceleration without jumping through hoops - i.e. just installing packages from default repos. I have no idea what the state of that is.

          "NOT yet" vs "Should work fine."

          maybe write it next time like this "should work fine.* *=NOT YET"

            Thanks for that. I really appreciate it. You've added a lot of useful information to this thread. It's genuinely helpful to someone looking for help.

                The original poster asked about enough support to run Compiz. Response was "should work fine". A separate, completely different question was asked about HDMI audio, response was "not yet".

                Wondering why the responses to two different questions need to be combined into a single answer in the first place.

                    Sure, but lack of HDMI audio doesn't mean a PC without sound, it means a PC without the ability to route the sounds to an HDMI-attached TV or audio system.
