  • AMD64 & ATI Radeon Mobility 9700

    I am trying to make a switch to Linux (again). I own an Asus A4K laptop.
    Hardware specs are:
    - AMD64 Mobila Athlon XP3200+
    - ATI Mobility Radeon 9700
    - 1Gb Memory
    - ...

    I tried the Fedora ZOD Live-CD and it ran great so I decided to install the Fedora Core 6 64-Bit edition on my system. I noticed the following on my system:
    - Artifacts during install.
    - Coolers are going nuts as soon as something graphical appears.
    - The video card cooler is almost constantly on (is is occasionally on on Win XP)
    - Non-working wifi zydas1211 (trying to find a solution elsewhere)

    What can I do to get rid of the cooloing/artifact problem?

    Thanks a lot
