ATI/AMD Graphics and MythDora 12.23
Hi all, currently I have an ATI 9600XT AGP card (i know it's old, but it works and is silent) powering my MD box.
I've just installed Fedora12 on my other, main PC (which uses an ATI HD3870 PICe card) for testing and etc. Unfortunately I have found that it's pretty much impossible to get this 3870 card working under Fedora 12 (and thus im assuming MythDora 12.23 as well).
A stack of people have reported that the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental have sorted their ATI driver problems for them (and some even had to resort to using the Rawhide (fed13) drivers), alas I've had no success. I'm not aware of anyone getting any of the official ATI drivers (v9.8 thru 10.2) working on Fedora 12 at all.. Fedora 11 and 10 yeh, but Fed12 comes with Xorg 1.7 (please correct me if im wrong) and this stuffs up the ATI driver.. 2d works fine, but I've found that I need the drivers to get installed correctly for me to get 1080i/p video to play without stuttering..
Admittedly I haven't tried my 9600XT in Fed12 yet to see how it fares - that's next on the list (but requires me to take apart the HTPC, which the wife isn't too keen on), but it hasn't been easy going with my 3870 yet..
Has anyone come across a way to solve this? If this is workable, will the appropriate drivers for my 9600XT (or other ATI cards) be available on the MythDora disc? or via a yum update?
I dont really want to have to go buy new hardware for MD12.23...
Thanks for any info.
