DO gAyTI MOBiLE drivers for linux exist?


Deleted by request

If anyone knows where I can get an ati 9600 mobile driver that will work with my card on my laptop running SUSE, i'd greatly appreciate it.

A search would have helped you find the answer quicker than waiting for my post.

ati.com

The fglrx drivers should work with anything based on a radeon chip, though they say the mobile cards aren't supported. Give it a shot.

If not, the kernel includes a "radeon" module which will at least give you 2D acceleration.

yea - I did that - I have 2d acceleration. I want 3d. If the drivers do not support mobile, then they probly wont work. The windows ones wouldnt even install :S

All I can say is mine is a mobile and it works.

It's not of much use to you though because it's not a 9600.


Try knoppix and suse live cd and see if it works.

According to this official ATI changelog on there Linux drivers, your card is supported, and the newest drivers finally support X.org.

I have an ATI Mobility Radeon, just use the regular drivers off ati's website.

The best resource I found is http://odin.prohosting.com/wedge01/g...adeon-faq.html

It's for Gentoo, but most of it (kernel options, troubleshooting) should work on any system. Remember if you use Xorg to rename your config to xorg.conf and change the keyboard driver from "Keyboard" to "kbd".

glxgears gives me about 1300 FPS and I play World of Warcraft via Transgaming without any issues.

Good Luck!

I am using Suse on this now but RedHat worked as well.

Yes, drivers provided by ati.

They do say on ati.com to check with the manufacturer for mobile chipset drivers, you just need to try it and see.

It's possible your's is not supported. If it were I would say it would work. You need to check the log files for x and see if there is any problem noted on the ati driver.
