    3. That link is a search request that lists the articles found (below "Tesseract Linux News") and is not a link to a single article
    I'm the german guy here. And I'm pretty sure that link wouldn't have worked in 2005 or would at least not have found any relevant articles.

        Why not just try then if something like that happens, a fedora rawhide? its a distro where many developers from the free drivers work as major distro or package directly for it. or use ubuntu if needed and compile it yourself.
        can you downgrade packages easily in fedora? do you have alternative, PPA-like repos in fedora?

          What made the HD5750 stop displaying?

          I have one in one of my machines, running Mesa versions from when Evergreen was first made to work through what came out in the Xorg-edgers PPA when Raring was released it didn't once lose the display. What was running when this happened? Maybe I need to blacklist that machine from being upgraded to my current OS image with current Mesa?

          That card is curiously slow, never getting over 350 fps in Critter (2d game in OpenGL) while it's full-spech HD5570 cousin will do double that. Wonder if a firmware bug is the culprit here?

                  I still use a Geforce 4 MX 420 on one of my boxes (with Athlon XP 1700+, 1GB RAM) and am quite satisified with it (although recently Firefox was quite slow).

                    I have a similar system somewhere around here (XP 2000+). But honestly these oldies consume more power than they are good for anything

                      very nice

                      To play devils advocate, you could make a list like this for Windows also, with the closed source of course. It's unfortunate Bug reports can't be filed, but we all appreciate your time with this.
