Is there a driver for ATI Radeon X300 SE ???
Posted 20 July 2004 - 02:20 AM
the new ATI Radeon X300 SE PCI-express graphics card ?
I don't need high performance, I just need basic
functionality. Does the proprietary ATI Radeon driver
work for this ?
How long does it usually take for new cards to become supported ?
Thanks for your help !

I am simply asking "Is this card supported? Have I made
a horrible mistake by ordering it ?"
Thanks Dapper Dan,
I also found this link but I'm not sure I trust it.
ATI's website does not say that this card is
supported and nobody else seems to know.

and the linuxforums.org Peripherals/Hardware board. You get around, eh?
Best I can tell, the X300 has the RV370 VPU and it probably going
to work with the radeon Xorg driver, being how it is still part
of the Radeon family - documentation here
You may need to 'trick' the driver by providing the ChipID for the RV360 VPU, however.
(see the documentation)
Install your distro, and come on back here if there's any trouble.

The 10.0 retail starts booting, then dies with
Kernel Panic: not syncing: attempted to kill init.
It looks like it is trying to use /dev/sda2 which would be correct.
The 9.3 and 10.1B load the kernel and immediately hang with the monitor black and its message saying "out of range" which I presume means the signal is garbage or invalid.

I have Win XP Pro x64 on the first (boot) SCSI drive and it runs just fine. :-(
FWIW, I have seen various installation hangups with Ubuntu (cant read the loader component). Fedora installs and runs but looks crappy with 800x600 (and its first kernel update panics). SLAX 5.0.7 boots fine and runs, but I want a more complete system, and what I really want is SuSE. Sigh.
