    Radeon 9000 (R200 Series) and Xorg 7.2

    Since the only ATI drivers that support Xorg 7.2 (thus supporting openSUSE 10.2) do not support the Radeon 9000, anyone with these boards cannot use these recent OS versions.

    I know we can use the opensource driver, but I like very much to connect my computer to the TV, and the opensource drivers do not allow that. (or is there any way to do it with the open-source drivers?)

    Hopefully you get it working.

    I tested, and tryed a all bunch off different options according ot what I found on the internet, but was neve able to get TV-out working. I allays got just a bunch of lines on the TV.

    Are you sure th TV-out has been merged with Xorg? From what I have read, it seemed that only tv-in was merged (see http://gatos.sourceforge.net/theater_out.php).

    Xorg 7.2 should support that card with 3d acceleration natively. I was using an Ubuntu 6.10 derivative distro and my 9200 worked fine with 3d acceleration.

    It is pretty good but not as good as the ati drivers. The 9000 seems to be among the best performing without having to recompile drm though.

    Well, given ATI's history it was expected. Thanks for the info.
