The card will work out of the box (and have 3D on Lucid), but you'll need the proprietary ATI driver (fglrx/Catalyst) to play WoW ( http://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonProgram )
I am looking at a new system and just starting with a linux based OS.
I a newb with linux. I am thinking of starting with Ubuntu
Now i read that Ati Radeon cards work with ubuntu
Would this XFX Radeon HD 4350 DDR2 1GB PCIe still work with the radeon drivers for ubuntu.
Mainly i want to get World of Warcraft running on ubuntu.
I havnt bought the system yet. Its a barebones system bundle that i will put together my self. But the graphiccard that comes with it is
XFX Radeon HD 4350 DDR2 1GB PCIe.
Does anyone got any help for me?
AMD Athlon II X2 240 Dual Core Processor
Kingston 2GB PC5400 DDR2 Memory
XFX Radeon HD 4350 Video Card
500gb Western Digital WD5000AAKS Caviar Blue Hard Drive
PowerUp ATX Black Mid-Tower Case with 450-Watt Power Supply
I checked that website link it says the r700 sucks for World of warcraft??? Confused
Or am i missing something?
I would like to start with ubuntu/linux based OS but seems like thats not going to be an option for playin WoW. But i have Seen youtube videos of people running WoW on linux OS
That link refers to how programs run with the open source drivers, not the binary (fglrx) drivers. DanL is saying that you need the proprietary drivers to run WoW.
There's a link at that Xorg page to the FGLRX driver info.
I think Ubuntu has the Restricted Driver Manager so you would run that and it should install the binary ATI driver.
Maybe an explanation of how to switch driver is in order? Just install/uninstall, right, guys? If you want to watch video, the radeon driver is better? An uninstall of the binary driver and the radeon driver is in the repository (where your packages are - check Synaptic Package Manager) will then be used.
I probably said too much but I'm debating upgrading my card to an ATI one so I'm sticking my nose in. Hope something I posted helps.
Kano abaut ubuntu 10.04:
"Btw. do you know the correct way to swith from fglrx to mesa or back? This is different than before as you can switch simply using:
update-alternatives --config gl_conf
rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
To switch to fglrx do this additonally:
aticonfig --initial --nobackup
Then just reboot. Be sure that the kernel you use has all needed kernel headers and is not newer than 2.6.32 for fglrx without any hack. "
the best card for radeon is (X800/r300)to(x1950/r500) this cards do have r300g means Gealium driver with openGL2.1
the R700 can handle WOW because of the FGLRX cloused source driver.
but not every wine versions brings the same good result i think 1.1.37 is good...
just start this and klick on 'aktivate' to install the FGLRX
i think catalyst 10-6 fix some viedeo problems to
I don't want to spread false info (RE: my previous post) and I was just asking what to do. It is good to know in case I buy an ATI card myself. Thanks for correcting...
