    What good does it do to push 400 FPS when your monitor only refreshes itself at 60hz?

    Even the low FPS (in the 30s to 60s) reported by the open-source drivers should be sufficient.

    Yeah, but mini PCIe to PCIe adapter cards don't exist, except from one company that charges $100 for them.

    I'm not sure that this $6 card will do the trick, even though someone else linked it...

    I got some more interesting results:

    I ran the game with LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1, and suddenly it was playable. Framerates still sucked; it wasn't even close to smooth. Also, there's quite a bit...

    I tried it, but it runs TERRIBLY on my RadeonHD 4550. It runs worse than even Enemy Territory/Doom engine-based games. Aquaria ran at 1FPS all the way 'til the title screen, and it took about 4...

    Meh. Now that I've been running git checkouts of Mesa/xf86-video-ati/libdrm for a few months, I don't think I can give up my addiction just for an actual point release.

    Meh. I'd prefer worthwhile hardware accel of regular DVDs, non-next-gen codecs (plain ol' mpeg, avi, etc.), and Flash.

    Neither AMD's Catalyst nor git checkouts of the open-source driver stack can...

    Thanks for the links, much appreciated. I may have to post to the bug after finding out what they're looking for. Long as it won't nuke my hardware, I'm up to the challenge. :)

    I just hope it'll support GeForce 8200 GPUs, like the one built into my motherboard, an Asus M3N78-VM. I use a RadeonHD 4550 with the latest git driver stack, but I'd be willing to try Nouveau if it...

    Pingu, might very well be a regression. I'll be updating my checkouts soonish to see what effect that has. I did find it very odd that the only Quake-based game that didn't work was OpenArena.

    So...

    You'd be correct, it does. In fact, if the RadeonFeature page is up-to-date, the only thing the radeonhd driver has that radeon does not is HDMI audio for a couple more cards.

    Wrong, Michael. You've got your facts wrong.

    The Gnome team hasn't yet made the decision about whether 2.30 or 2.32 will become Gnome 3.0.

    It's mini-ITX computer, not DTX. And DTX motherboards and cases have been around for quite awhile now. They're not as prevalent as mini-ITX, but they've been around.

    But for normal usage, say for playing hardware-accelerated 3D games or desktop work etc., the graphics card does use all its available memory, right? For both the open-source drivers and Catalyst?

    fglrx is proprietary. There's no such thing as an open-source version of it. fglrx is the module name of ATI's proprietary Catalyst driver.

    There is no "open-source fglrx."
