Well I don't plan on compiling my own kernel on this slow pc nor using source distro(s)
I've used Arch yea it works why because arch is not using Xorg 6.9 correct?
Also the way Arch configs X is horrible because your not even able to go 1280x1024, the max I get is 1024x768 when before in other distro(s) I've played with 1280x1024 or 1024x768, but now Arch blocks that and when I add 1280x1024 to my xconfig aan error comes up saying is out of sync thats b/s lol.
i would say that "distro blah configs X" is not correct.
you make it
if you can't reach the desired resolution, this can be a combination between the xorg.conf file + some kernel config.
in theory this is distro independent.
don't expect graphic acceleration and maximum resolution "out of box" with this card.
edit the files and you will get it.
