Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

Diamond Stealth S60 Radeon 7000


I'm gonna buy one of these because I got a new 27" flatscreen in my room and it's begging for a computer connection. So I was wondering if anyone has this running on linux and if it's good as a TV-out card.

I suppose that would depend upon which model you were looking at, the 32MB or 64MB model.

Before you buy though you need to heed the warning at this link > http://www.diamondmm.com/s60.php

Check the AGP voltage on your motherboard! It's it not right then there's an answer....

I have 4 Radeon cards but they are made by ATI, not Diamond Multimedia. All 9200's with 128MB and it seems that there is no support for the video driver from ATI for 3D acceleration with Linux yet. Something to consider too. I finally went with DRI > http://dri.freedesktop.org for 3D.
