I used the free driver sever months because the proprietary ati driver caused some system crashes on my notebook. But now the 3d desktop packages are coming into debian etch and i want to test them. Unfortunately they can only be used with openGL which I can only get from the propritary ati driver.
So, again, I’m testing the new ( 8.29.6) driver and will report how they worked… btw I’m using this tutorial site for the install
The installing of the driver and getting the system working with 3d were no big problems, but the crashes are still there. So I disabled the propritary ati driver another time…
For people who are curious, my graphic card is: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility X700 (PCIE)
