    Will this work for my HD 4850?

    IRQ's not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 2 0
    server glx version string: 1.2
    client glx version string: 1.4
    GLX version: 1.2
    OpenGL version string: 1.5 Mesa 7.7-rc1


    Can't vouch for the 4850 specifically but mine's a pretty close model so it's worth a try.

    Tried Football Manager in wine but no luck. However, at this rate I'm sure it wont be long.

    What card you using? Does anyone know if my Mobility Radeon HD 3450 will work?
    Lucid Beta 2 powered Studio 15 (Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz, 3 GB RAM, HD 3450) & Windows XP powered Scaleo E (Celeron D 3.06GHz, 1.5GB RAM, Intel GMA 915G). Please see Ubuntu Tutorials (my YouTube channel).

    There are some more variations than what I'll post here now, but this will get you going with multi-quote. You have to close a quoted section with the following command "[/quote]" (without the inverted commas) this is what I did to break your text above so I could type this.

    After which then I copy the persons quote=name line as follows "[QUOTE=rajeev1204;8445398]", (once again without the inverted commas) & place it at the start of the next part of the other person's (in this case your) text that you want to display, as follows:

    That is great news.

    Anyways,lets hope for the best.

    I do.


    Just a note on the keyboard shortcuts for copying, cutting & pasting, which is particularly useful when you want to reuse a persons quote=name (as mentioned earlier in this post) to break up their post so as to add your replies.

    Drag the mouse cursor with the left mouse button depressed, to highlight the desired text, then manipulate it with the following keyboard shortcuts:

    copy = "Ctrl" & "c"
    paste = "Ctrl" & "v"
    cut = "Ctrl" & "x"

    you can of course paste what you have cut. You probably know that stuff, but it is not hard for me to type it & it just might be useful.

    All the best.

    Far as I know HD3000 and 4000 series is good but the only way is to try it and see. Maybe install on a flash drive (clean) and run from there, see how it goes. If it plays nice, then try it on your main box. As I say, it's bumped stability right up for me, 32 is a fantastic kernel, and could be a real big deal for linux, the time when all 3 graphics cards have quality driver support.
