Re: Hercules 9800 Pro and XFree under unstable.

Hi Yall & Rus,

who is having some grief with his Radeon 9800 under Tux.

Yeah, I've been down that road too & now have my 9500 Pro up with full 3D, on a nForce2 board

[haralambos@localhost haralambos]$ glxgears
13880 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2776.000 FPS
17298 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3459.600 FPS
6000 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1200.000 FPS
2319 frames in 5.0 seconds = 463.800 FPS
4514 frames in 5.0 seconds = 902.800 FPS

[haralambos@localhost haralambos]$

I changed from small window to full screen....

Check out the howto @ this URL....


Failing that, add this to your apt-get sources list for OK 2D & wait for newer & easier to install drivers out of ATI

deb http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-trunk/ ./

I found the latter easier than downloading the full XFree86 4.3.

Up to you & *HTH*
