Ok im installing RHL 9 on my new build, and i have ran into a problem installing the video card. (a radeon 9600 non-pro 128mbs) Which one do i pick? I know that their are drivers FOR radeons, except that they dont have the 9600?! So i checked the rest of the list and found FireGL. and thats where i flipped out. i didn't know what it was, so i checked ati's site and found this "FireGL", i started to read what each had to say, but i went insane trying to understand what the hell firegl was!!!
So i researched some more, and i think i found some answers, and im not totaly sure if it is the right one.... but that is why u guys were put on earth. So u can help out the linux illiterate people, that have dug themselves a trench which they cant get out of. anyway after i read some more i came to the conlusion that I have to use the FireGL 8700, and/or 8800, because it said so. I may be wrong, so i need ur help! I've already tried 2 and they both couldn't boot the up after the second time i try to use my linux box.(which by the way is incredably GAY!) Is there a SPECIFIFC ONE i should use to use my graphic card??? I want to play my emulated games and I've heard (read) that the FireGL drivers are the best drivers to get for ur radeon, and im gonna stick to that. O yea and I read this on one of the firegl drivers installation tips and wanted to know if its true...
"On distributions that come with pre-packaged drivers for the
graphics board a native graphics mode install will work."
I dont want to reinstall RedHatLinux again so answers would be great, thanx!
