First of all thanks to the team and personally to Patrick. Not just for 64, but for all this years and years of working on the product.
I use Slackware for quite a long time now. I really love it for a lot of different arguments which I am not going to write here to safe your time.
I've started somewhere between 99 and 00. In the beginning of my Slackware history, I used to do some programming, since I was related to science and I easily followed the history of distribution and did a lot of compilations myself. I also translated slackbook into Russian and wrote few short articles in Russian about it (http://sle.how-to.ru/
For the past few years my major activity is not related to programming. I simply use Slackware as my Desktop. I feel like to many things have changed for these years. So maybe I will ask a little bit silly questions, but please do not kill me for that.
I own a SONY VAIO VGN-SR11MR laptop with ATI 3470 (which uses R600, I believe).
Is there any way to make 3d working on 64 bit system?
I tried to download ATI proprietary 9.5 driver, which was released few days ago, but it dies on the newly installed slackware64-current with --buildpkg Slackware/All.
Is there any ideas on how to get it working? Or how to use open source radeon driver for this chip?
Another questions are about skype and googleearth for slackware64. Please advise if you have any idea.
