Hi all,

finally I did it again like Britney :) but with Ubuntu. I again upgraded. I readed a lot of forum threads. Yes I have X800, which is legace now and after upgrade my Ubuntu runs open sourse driver. 3D support is totally weak and as I am not enough good in tweaking it It simply does not works correctly. So I was not able to start Enemy Teritorry. But that's all I played in Ubuntu in 3D. Other games in 2D work perfectly.

One thing I am really surprised, mkv videos are now faster and some without any tearing. So I supose 2D is better with opensource than with fglrx.

My TV card is working without any problem. Sound laso. So I can live without 3d for now. If you don't need to be in 3d u can upgrade without problems.

Upgrade without data or email loss.
