Talking Problem with ATi Radeon 9250


As I seen on this forum and on most of other forums Ati RX 9250 is really hard to make work under linux (hell it was hard to make it work under windows xD)So my question is if someone have that card please tell me (step by step if you have time) how did you installed drivers correctly.And my second option is to buy an NVIDIA because I see almost everyone is working perfectly
|Btw I have full 2D and 3D right now but its slow on 3D esspecially on 3D cube in compiz|
|lspci | grep ATI|
Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO] (rev 01)
01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO] (Secondary) (rev 01)
|fglrxinfo|
Code:
apoljon@ubuntu:~$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R200 20060602 AGP 8x x86/MMX+/3DNow!+/SSE2 TCL
OpenGL version string: 1.3 Mesa 7.2

|my xorg.conf|yeah I know its weird one...thats why I need your help
Code:

# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*

#
# Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously

# here are ignored.

Hi, which driver are you using? The opensource radeon or the proprietary fglrx? The first thing I'd try is using the other one than you're using now. Do you have direct rendering (glxinfo | grep direct)? To install the opensource driver, just search for x86-video-ati in the package manager. (run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg" afer having installed the driver.)

Hey, are you using a larger screeen than your card can have textures? I know I have this problem with an old 7200. setting "Option" "AIGLX" "0" in the serverflags section and adding
Code:
Section "DRI"
    Group "0"
    Mode 0666
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
        Option "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection
helped my case...
