    I did not write that description. I create Kanotix which is Debian based.

    Kano, you're listed as a Debian developer. You should understand questions like "When can I play Zero Ballistics or Doom3?" are useless.

    "When it's ready"

    I can understand these kinds of questions coming from the average user who doesn't know better, but from a Developer...

    That's why they are working on the "game" part.
    I still get tearing with videos (R700) is that normal?

    Don't you think it is a bit uncomfortable to uninstall fglrx when you want to watch a video and then switch to fglrx when you want to play a game?

    For GLSL on 6xx/7xx you'll probably want to stay with fglrx for a while longer. I expect you will see GLSL in open drivers on 3xx-5xx before you see it on 6xx-7xx.

    Or when can I play Zero Ballistics which requires GLSL... Also I don't know of any oss driver that can run gl2benchmark. fglrx 9-2 and newer runs it or nvidia binary.

    I doubt anyone has tried it yet. We're focusing on getting the low level tests passing first.

    How far is running Doom3 on it then?

    thanks guys

    seems like I can put back in my 4850

    (I'm having loads of problems with flgrx - hopefully the opensource driver just works?)

    kde 4 with accelerated / composited desktop (most preferably opengl) will work, right ?
    With EXA, render based compositing will work. GL-based compositing requires a 3D driver which is not available yet.

    We hope to push some basic stuff out soon.
