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
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*
