So I just bought an ATI 3870 after having an nvidia 7800gt and gaming in windows is phenomenal. Unfortunately, I've been welcomed into the world of linux ati drivers and its not very pretty. Right now I'm running vesa and I would love to get compiz/3d acceleration. I tried 7.11 driver but that was a no go. What driver should I use? Does the open source driver support the 3870? I read on here that it did, but I'm not sure how to get a recently updated version or if it really even does support 3d. If all this is for naught, anyone have speculation that 7.12 will support my card? Thanks in advance, I hope ATI wakes up, running linux with my 7800gt was a dream come true.
No announcement yet.
what driver should i use for ati 3870?
