Now two things I noticed. 3 times I have done cold reboots and 3 times the monitor goes black and the machine resets back into AmigaOS etc
each time my session lasts about 20-30 mins, all I've been doing is browsing with firefox, I also noticed that I couldn't get any movies to play
in youtube at all (not that I actually care LOL) or on other sites, no smooth playback
Now I recall when I used the DVD when it initially arrived my 4890 in it at the time played any movie I threw at it easily, it was a little weird that double
clicking on a youtube movie on the right handside didn't make it play in the window in place of the old movie?
Here's the thing, the 6870 that I have now, which arrived from the states a week or so okay performs just fine on the AmigaOS side, it plays everything just
fine and I even put it through it's paces with gfxbench, which I will attach at the end of this post
Is it possible that my card is a oddity? am I missing something? LIke said, I think it's nothing to worry about, it's just one of those things? I don't think Linux is
placing too much strain on the card since the fans sound just a happy speed... also, doesn't matter whether I use the ethernet card or the GB plugged into the
GB port of my router, exactly same
I just remembered I played a few movies from a USB HD and a USB Stick and they played just fine, sound in sync as well, I guess it's a streaming problem?
But why would the 4890 cruise along where the 6870 can't do alot - is there some switch I need to flick? Is OS Installation a factor?
I'm willing to beat it's just an incompatiability with this card? It's a sapphire 6870 that I brought specifically for this DVD
Does the log of performance show anything to indicate somethings wrong?
And do I really need to serial the crash? If so, how do I turn on debug on the Linux side to capture on the other X1000 through term
