Ahoy Hoy!

I've just installed 9.10 to my HP2133 (1.2ghz / 2GBRam) and everything seems pretty good. My only issue is that the display is a little choppy and slow. I'm aware that VIA had released drivers for 9.04 which sorted the display and enabled 3D, but I was hoping someone might know if there was any other alternatives e.g. Openchrome. I think if the display was working to it's best, my system would run a lot faster.

Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I think if I had the display / xorg.conf set up correctly with a decent VIA or Openchrome driver running, the system would be very fast. When I got my system, I had OpenSuse SLED10 installed and it went VERY fast.

It's a shame as like using Ubuntu and want to support the cause.
