Mandriva 2006 for Dell Latitude C600


Hi There,


I have a Dell laptop, its a Dell Latitude C600. I would like to tweak the video to the max, so that I may get best video possible. When I run (from the command line) glxgears, I can get a very high frame rate. So I guess what I am asking is what must be done to tweak the video for the best performance, and simply just great video. I am not sure if I have to recompile the kernel for the best video and/or tweak the info in the Xorg and XFR86Config. I had another system before where I tweak the XFR86 and added the chipID. But as for the Dell Latitude C600, the video card on this laptop is ATI Rage 128 Mobilty. So can someone be so kind as to provide me with good information as to what must be done? I appreciate it very much. Thank you.


Al_Khidr,
