    Default AMD 690G chipset under linux?

    I'm thinking of picking up a Asus M2A-VM(690G) chipset to replace my dead mobo and would like to know how good support for the chipset is under linux. Should i expect problems or should everything run smoothly?

    Hi, I'm thinking to build a cheap setup with 690G chipset (abit fatal1ty). But from the impression i got with ati graphics drivers in linux...i think it's better not to get this setup. :S

    Abit has a 690G board? I was checking their website and they only had Nvidia stuff for AMD as far as i could tell

    Ahh...my bad. It's not RD690....the one Abit has is RX1250 chipset?

    Default 690G works well in CentOS 5

    I use soyo 690G MB. It works fine in CentOS 5.0, following are sth noted during installation:

    1. disable the HPET (high precision event timer) in BIOS (for soyo MB, bios must be updated by winflash)
    2. update the CentOS asap after installation, the newest kernel can tolerate HPET enabled
    3. use latest alsa sound driver and use kmixer/alsa mixer to increase the volumn
    4. install the legacy software support in CentOS 5 and install ati driver for RHEL 4.

    Then everything works fine

    Talking Using 690G for a month with 64bit linux

    I am using Biostar TA690G-AM2 MoBo for a month now
    with 64-bit Xubuntu (as before)
    and everything is fine.

    Driver fglrx is working and even compiz is doing its job. MoBo have hdmi, dvi, vga and tv-out but only one digital and one analoge out can be used at he same time. Its graphics is faster then intel G33/690G
    Overclock is great on Biostar.

    See 690G MoBo list:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/690G#List_of_690_chipset
    Pay attention that only both Gigabyte 690G`s has 4x PciExpress port (beside 16x one).
    (And Albatron with Mini-ITX - Cute
