No that's the one, but try with the BusType PCIE which by not trying to use AGP can help with problems that AGP motherboards/cards have.I already tried the ati/radeon driver, unless you are talking about a different one than I'm thinking
Not sure really, Some AGP motherboards seem to have more problems than others, the card may not be faulty, but the crash with vesa doesn't sound good. Maybe you could try a different distro CD and see how it goes with that.worst comes to worst the card is defective and I'll have to get a new one.
do you have any suggestions in the $100 range that won't have the driver issues this one has had?
ok, now it's mostly working again, when using the ati driver, the pcie option did help out a lot.
and messing with the bios reveals that I can set everything to there highest and it doesn't crash the system (might not be having any effect at all).
I still cannot get opengl compositing to work though.
my current conf and log
it still locks up with the radeonhd driver though
unless anyone has any other ideas I'm probably going to leave it like it is for a few months until the hd driver is a little bit more mature.
oh, and video is now working well for the most part
