    Radeon 9100 IGP and S-video out

    Hi. Tonight I am a very unhappy Gentoo user. I have a couple of older Asus Pundit-R machines that have ATI Radeon IGP 9100 controllers onboard. I've run these machines for years using the S-Video...

    Michael,
    I am still having troubles with this upgrade. I've gone back to 2.6.19 and 8.28.8 but when I try to start X I get messages about mismatches having to do with xorg-x11-7.1 vs. 7.2.

    Thanks Michael. I'll give 2.6.19 with 8.28.8 a try.

    This may be the end of the line for these machines as MythTV frontends. Linux pushes forward and without support for the onboard video chip it...

    1) If you know then where is a list of what drivers work with which kernels?

    2) Can you suggest which kernel does work with 8.28.8?

    Thanks,

    Does the Tarantula work at all in Linux? I found an article on Phoronix implying that it did but on my son's Gentoo system it's not doing anything. Here's the article:

    I tried out the newest ati-drivers package today - 8.29.6 - and notice a marked improvement in all areas. It's not nearly as good as the much older pathced 8.14...

    I did try disconnecting the S-Video out. It didn't change anything. I don't have an S-Video to composite adapter. Maybe Radio Shack or Fry's carries something like that. Don't know.

    Not much to say here. It just listed 'tv' as the only thing it saw. No clues I can gather about how to get proper X11 video/graphics on the composite video output so far.

    OK - thanks. Digging out a keyboard to see what I see when I'm hooked up directly. I'll have to save outputs into files and then scp them back here to provide data back.

    Back in awhile.

    Hi again,
    After viewing the quality of the video output I'm seeing a LOT of video 'tearing' as a scene changes quickly. It's like the mpeg stuff was only doing part of the frames or something.
