    Improve Laptop Graphics

    Hi all,

    I have been using Ubuntu for a couple of years now, but looking to improve the speed of my ageing laptop I found myself in this forum. I was impressed with everyone's enthusiasm for Arch and made the switch this weekend.

    So far I love the speed difference - everything is much "snappier"

    The only issue I am having to date is in getting the ATI Rage Mobility P/M AGP 2x video card working with any driver other than the Vesa driver.

    When I change the driver from "vesa" to "ati" I get a message saying "Failed to load module "mach64" (module does not exist, 0)"

    I have searched on here and on the Arch forums, but have not been able to find a solution that works. Any ideas?

    Steven

    Install the xf86-video-mach64 driver through Pacman.
