ATI fglrx driver in Intrepid
I just got the beta up and running and ran straight into the first problem.
I installed the fglrx driver from the repos which was said to be the first one to support xserver 1.5.x and xorg 7.4.x
So installed it and t:he reboot just worked flawlessly and glxinfo and fglrxinfo confimred the correctness of what I did.
But ET:QW refused to render Strog Objects (at least it seemed like that, or it maybe something else alike) at least I got ugly triangles all over the screen when viewing certain areas of a map.
As I had this before, I added some advanced options to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf and updated /etc/ati/amd...conf
I rebooted and got a blackscreen, so.. I am quite stunned as these were the EXACT SAME options as I used in hardy.
I know thtat xserver / xorg are now autdetecting a lot of input/output devices, and xorg.conf will get deprecated within the next 3 years or so (just a guess), but if so, where can I put in my xcustom pimped options which whose etqw worked flawlessly??
... put your money where your mouth is ...
stop sustaining Microsoft (and its pet named Apple)!
