    Phoronix: AMD Radeon HD 5750/5770

    In late September AMD had introduced the Radeon HD 5850 and Radeon HD 5870 graphics cards as the successors to the Radeon HD 4850 and Radeon HD 4870, respectively. These graphics cards, which are part of the Evergreen GPU family, have been performing quite nicely according to reports, but we have yet to test either of these Cypress graphics cards under Linux. Today though AMD is introducing the first midrange graphics cards in the Evergreen family. Under the Juniper codename, the Radeon HD 5750 and HD 5770 are being launched with both graphics cards being quite similar except for the ATI Radeon HD 5770 shipping with slightly higher core and memory clocks along with a different heatsink. In this review we have the first Linux-based benchmarks of these two new graphics cards, which are also the first publicized Linux benchmarks from any AMD Evergreen graphics processor.

    There are 29 pages in this thread, many issues being discussed. Which one do you mean?

    amd really should pay you ;-)

    i think i use your skript to test this wine kernelbugfix:
    https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15395#c34

    in the 2.6.34 kernel..

    @mugginz: I was trying to boot from a live system, not installed one. But the boot options to boot into a live-textshell do not seem to work with Lucid

    @Kano: ... neither does building anything against the Kernel on Live Lucid. (This LTS is really sloppy done.)
    Thanks for the script though. I installed to HD, and there the script ran like a charm.
    Now, do I assume right that I better ignore the packet management nagging me about available updates for Catalyst?

    WTF, Shuttleworth!!!
    Re you able to boot to a text console by using the standard procedure?

    To boot into text mode
    • Reboot machine
    • Hold down shift key before GRUB starts so as to go into the grub menu
    • Press E to edit the boot options
    • Add the word "text" (no quotes) to the list of kernel options
    • Press CTRL-X to begin booting into text mode

    you can use it this way too:
    Code:
    sudo -i
    DISPLAY= sh install-fglrx-debian.sh -z
    reboot

    So your suggestion is to make deb files?

    Where do you place them to make sure that jockey will not get the Ubuntu distributed ones? (again: they do not work, they fuck up the X Server)
