This has led me to use a Tyan dual Opteron motherboard the s and various solid-to-high performance components. This universe is crazy. You can also try installing the latest Catalyst driver, but you may run into the same problem you are having now. I do 3d modelling, photogrammetry, 3d game engine stuff and video editing.

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. Puppy Linux is superduper lightweight and probably worth looking into. In order to have the Radeon card handle the graphic intensive process use: Your card is no longer supported by its manufacturer and has no official Linux enw. Make sure your OpenGL renderer string does not say “software rasterizer” or “llvmpipe” because that would mean you have no 3D hardware acceleration: Hosting provided by Metropolitan Area Network Darmstadt.

Wait until Ubuntu ATI’s website is devoid of any mention of linux in their “drivers” section HDMI audio should work automatically.

I find that for basically the first time in my life I can build the computer system I would like to have without having to worry about the cost.

FreeNX works fine, except than in Windows 7 machines NX Client shows only icons and no text but the only resolution I can get in the monitor directly attached to the server is x I know the arguments for and against free software and am firmly of the opinion that I will only spend my money on this computer’s video system if there is a free software driver solution that allows me to be both vendor-independent and able to fully exercise all the capabilities of the hardware.

I came to Ubuntu Mate after having issues with Mint and was so glad Catalyst worked out of the box.

I have found that Fedora works really well with open source video drivers. Give that I need opengl and, from what I understand from that article, the opensource drivers on offer will not provide it, I guess this means I either upgrade both my card and my OS, or neither.



Identifying your graphics card or APU Liunx, check your graphic card name and chipset: Just did a ‘apt-get dist-upgrade’ which upgraded the kernel from 2.

If you have previously used the non-free nvidia proprietary driver, then you need to uninstall it if you wish to use OpenGL accelerated graphics. Don’t forget the “.

Check the manpage of the Radeon driver for advanced options. What is the model of your GPU?

Submit a new text post. Tried on x and x M2 series servers. The thing is that the card you’re talking about is so old that I bet all the support it’ll ever had was long added to the Kernel and X.
