ATI Radeon HD 4350: Lucid Lynx performance


I was wondering: I currently have an ATI Radeon HD 2400 graphics card in my home-built desktop right now, but have a boxed HD 4350 (or, should I say, ASUS EAH4350 Silent) downstairs, ready to install when my family moves and settles down.

Has anyone had any luck getting the 4350 to work with Linux? And if so, how well? Specifically: How well does the 4350 work with GNOME Shell? I know with the 2400, GNOME Shell causes the screen to flicker, especially when zooming in and out of the Overview. Does the 4350 do the same thing? Do I have to roll back to the version of the Shell in the Lucid repo instead of in the PPA? I certainly do not want to do this.

my wife uses ATI 4350. It works well, but closed source ATI driver seems no longer support this model. So there is with Xorg ATI driver no 3D acceleration and there is no Xv per default. I cannot find any problem with gnome shell.

That just isn't true. The HD4350 is supported by the proprietary driver. And the open source driver also supports 2D and 3D acceleration (including Xv).

possibly it is supported, but it seems my CentOS 5.4 does not like this card, or Xorg version is somewhat old. xvinfo reports "no adapter present". Loaded r500 drivers seems to work well in all other cases, but 3d and Xv not. I should mention that i did not investigate in this deeper, because of a lot of other work

Well I don't know what version CentOS ships with, but 2D and 3D acceleration have been supported in the open source drivers on r500 GPUs for over a year now :-)
