HD5470 and gaming
I know this is a long-shot, given the state of the Linux ATI drivers right now, but I'm wondering if anyone has had any success with getting gaming/3d acceleration to work for an hd mobility 5000 series.
I'm running Ubuntu's Lucid on a Dell Studio laptop. The resolution works great, most things I'm happy with, but I'm trying to avoid being forced to dual-boot windows just for games.
I'm hoping I'm missing a setting somewhere that will make life more enjoyable, but not holding my breath. Thanks!
did you install fglrx?
What are the specific problems are you running into?
can you pastebin Xorg.0.log and the output of glxinfo?
