Ati Video problem

I have an install of Debian unstable that recently had a pile of upgrades, and afterward had extremely slow scrolling in Iceweasel/Firefox/Epiphany and even Opera. I have the fglrx drivers installed. I tried safe mode for Iceweasel, but no improvement. I finally resorted to "vesa" drivers in xorg, which seems to have fixed the problem. More if I discover the cause.

Perhaps I'll try an aptitude reinstall fglrx to see what happens.

In the mean time I have installed...

Having used Ubuntu as my main OS for over 3 years, I'm still a Linux beginner. Ubuntu has made it (relatively) easy to do my day to day computing, and the forums make it easy to fix things that go/are wrong.

I recently pulled out and dusted off a previously obsoleted box that I bought when I was living in Perth in 2000/2001. I was never a gamer so system specs were never too much of an issue. This baby has 64MB of RAM and a Celeron processor.

I usually looked for the...

A simple way to get ATi working on Mandriva 2009.0 (X1300)

I always ran in to multiple problems while trying to get my ATi card to work properly. To be more precise it is X1300 PRO (AGP), and here i wish to show you how to do it!

First off, make sure that you don't have any previous drivers installed, so remove them. If you don't have the drivers installed skip this step:

If installed from the repository:
Code:
su -
<password>
urpme dkms-fglrx
If installed with the ATi installer:...
