Re: ATI Linux Driver Packages

Are these drivers much better then than XFree ones or is there a reason
to be promoting nonfree drivers? I orginally packaged up the nvidia ones
in the way they are done due to the fact the XFree ones had no 3d
acceleration at all and that it was illegal to distribute nvidia's
binaries directly.  Also binary only drivers will taint the kernel and
can cause the user to have trouble getting help with kernel related
issues. I got rid of my nvidia cards (some poor sucker took them) and
now use only ATI cards. 8)
