Re: 12" PB less supported than 15", 17" ?

the radeons above 9200 are not supported by X. :( Since ATI has not released
specs on the r300 chips.

nvidia chips have x86 only binary drivers....
ati drivers are also x86 only.


I'm still getting a powerbook with the 9600, but I will not be able to do
much with debian. There may be a way to trick X into thinking the 9600 is a
9200, anyone had luck with this?

any way to support the cause and show ATI the value of thier linux market?
(I've already sent many mails to support@ati.com, all they do is restate
what we already know.)
