ATI and Slackware
Posted 19 April 2004 - 01:47 AM
I had trouble last time with Mandrake 9.1 and the official Radeon drivers for Linux and they would not install.
Was wondering if anyone could help me out in advance or ready for tommorow when I install with setting up my ATI 9600XT 256mb.
Just as some added extra information, my full system specs are as follows.
AMD Athlon XP 2200+
Sapphire Radeon 9600XT 256mb
512mb TwinMOS PC3200
Jetway KT400 Motherboard
The default kernel with Slackware 9.1 is 2.4.24 if I remember rightly, so would also be upgrading to 2.6.5 or 2.4.26, which ever has the better support for ATI?
Thanks in advance,

One of the guys on the Mepis Forum claims that the new beta does include and configure the ATI drivers, 3d and all, for his 7500 laptop. That's nice, but I'll still wait untill the beta is a little further along.
