Re: First time X1000 Linux user

Yes not rushing to change gfx cards. Seems using two pcie cards in the x1000 would be a bad idea anyway. Wouldnt mind some guidance on tidying up the mesa install here. I added a fex things, which slowed glxgear from ~200fps down to ~80fps. Can you take a look at the picture above and advise what I ...

Re: First time X1000 Linux user

Ah. Disappointing.
I only upgraded from a 6850 to get si_warp3d in Amigaos. What an awful clash.

Will have to think this one through a bit.

Re: First time X1000 Linux user

I followed the aeon guide to install mesa graphics drivers. Glxgears runs OK now. I take it that this means gfx hw acceleration is working. I noticed Xeno74 hosts an unofficial mesa archive. Should I install that? You installed Debian 7.9.0, didn't you? For Debian 7.9.0 you don't need to install th...

If so how? It seems that my current install has no hardware a...

Re: First time X1000 Linux user

Yeah, seems like the PATA drive should be sdc (?) , maybe with the jumper on. :? Hooray! I put the jumper on, reset my bootargs to sdc1. The system boots reliably now from the menu. I updated and have a working GNOME 3.4.2 install. Should I test newer kernels now or do I need to install MintPPC? Re...
