    If only it were even slightly funny!

    I am so glad that I didn't wait, and hacked 8.42.3 to work instead.

    chrisr - which version of the hacks did you use? Looks like your T60p may be closest to mine based on resolution and such that I've seen listed here.
    Also - what distro are you running on?
    Thanks

    I used Kano's method which has been described by ambro814 in this thread. I'm running Ubuntu 7.10 and it worked on the first try.[/QUOTE]

    Thanks - I have F8 installed currently. I had no luck getting past the boot screen with 7.04 so didn't try 7.10.

    I won't upgrade to Fedora 8 until 8.43 is released (assuming that I can hack that too).

    I can't remember which version of the hack I am using; there is a patch for the driver, and I add a ChipID to xorg.conf.

    Why doesn't an ATI engineer dare to show there face here?
    Because if a ATI engineer showed up in here, and started praising things about the next driver, and then a bunch of people have issues with it, that guy is in big trouble hahaha. Personally if I was a ATI engineer, and just took one quick read on this forum, I would probably just close the browser and forget about it. Its not that people are only having problems with the drivers, they seem to want to kill the people responsible haha.

    Its like a mob with torches and pitch forks chanting give us working drivers or die.

    If they don't have firegl support by 8.44 they are definiately in big trouble. Hell I'd say they already are but they did just hire some more people so we'll see what happens.
