Without #1, it would be impossible. #2 and #3 are the only things i can think that would tempt me.
    I don't think that *anything* could convince me to switch to the blob... Even on the nvidia side of things, I use nouveau. It just works so much nicer

    Question

    Here's the relevant phoronix news article relating to it:
    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...item&px=NzQyOQ
    I stumbled across this post as I seek a solution to system instability that seems to be arising out of the graphics system for my 785G board with Radeon HD 4200 IGP [Gigabyte GA-MA785GT-UD3H (AMD 785G chipset AMD SB710) BIOS updated to version F8].

    I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction to set up my system correctly, or participate in some way to assist the Fedora community in getting open source support for this hardware.

    I have tried Fedora 12 through to 14 on my system. I have tried to poke under the hood as far as I could with my limited knowledge. Things have definitely improved.

    My system was plagued by SIGSEGV and SIGABRT errors earlier. I was able to achieve some stability on F13 with the Catalyst driver and a specific kernel version. I installed F14 this weekend. Keen to stick with the open source driver, was glad to see Compiz work initially. Ran ok for a while, then started getting SIGSEGVs again. So I turned that off and went back to the default (The standard desktop effect is 2D, I guess). Don't know where to go from here. Or is this the best that is presently possible with this hardware? Would appreciate some direction.

    I am trying to maintain a history of my findings << here >>, hoping someone with knowledge of linux graphics can point out how to get this right.

    As far as I know, that board should be running perfect in F14. You may have a defective board or possibly RAM. I would suggest, if possible, try installing an add-in video card and see if that functions normal. Also, if you have more than one stick of RAM, try pulling one and then the other and see if that solves it. Also, be sure that your RAM is clocked properly!

    i don't get it no one in this threat say anyhing about 'Q' ?? or do you use my 'Q'ness just to say thinks what you officaly can not say ?

    Q'ness wispers something about the shader based video acccleration in the OS driver and Q'nessness also buys an hd42xx pc last days and he thinks that system works well for kick out his mom intel igp shitty shit pc.

    Qness also thinks Fusion is getting fucking nice for system for his next pc..

    thalk in Qnessnessness is fucking awesome you know what Q means if you use the Q you are lighted up by QQQQnneeeessss

    It's a typo on HP's behalf, they've fixed it up now. I should of been clearer.
