Ive been wanting to get the 3d working on my ATI Radeon mobility whatchamacallit for ages - its the IGP 320m - all that DRI and kernel building stuff looks waaaay hard.. Im using Mandrake 10 at the moment but ive downloaded the new slackware, im hoping it'll be easier to build a kernel under it because i dont need a "mandrake" kernel - hopefully anyway..

Like predatorX said .. any tips would be appreciated

Thumbs up

Hi guys,

I tried the the latest drivers for Suse, 8.10.12 I believe.
Seems Ati finally did their home work, since my frame rate is lots better!
I can even play UT2004 on 1 screen and watch a background on the other !

To crazytigger: It states here that the IGP should be supported in X
I don't have a card so do not know how to make it work.
Seems you have to configure X properly.

So then it seems you would not have to recompile your kernel.
It's been some time since I used Mandrake, but I think it has a modular kernel and tries upgrades automatically.
This hides kind of what happens.
Never used Slack, but it seems closer to Unix, little like gentoo, with a lot of manual stuff for configuration.
That might clear up how thinks work, you will see configuring and compiling a kernel is not such a big deal.

I'm sure you can get your card to work, just keep on looking and trying!
We'll help .

If you want a smooth crispy automated Linux, my guess is to try Suse 9.2.
I love it!

Cheers !
