    Yes, I understand that, but at the same time it is not nearly as bad as you are making out. I mean, you loose some clarity on the edges, but it does not drastically hurt the graphics as much as you seem to be implying. Plus you can also just run it windowed, and get around all of the associated graphical problems. This I imagine would not even be much of a problem if you are playing on a mega-huge screen, which 1920x1280 really actually is. Most modern desktops have smaller screens than my comparatively dinky "17 LCD. And most games I play on R600g (and I play a lot of games) can handle 1280x1024 just fine.

    Thanks Unigine for supporting the open source drivers!

    I ran Oil Rush 1.01 on my GeForce 310 using the following drivers on Ubuntu Oneiric 3.0.0-15.

    Code:
    OpenGL vendor string: nouveau
    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on NVA8
    OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 8.0-devel (git-f9f8ce3 oneiric-oibaf-ppa)
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20

    You have to enable it under Options. It's the last tab, I think.

    Keep in mind that if you're using a composited environment, it usually unredirects fullscreen windows. This does not happen if you're running the game in a window, and that can be a considerable performance hit.

    Yes, though I actually turned that option off on the Xfce compositer as I actually got a more stable FPS with compositing on. I do not know why, but that was the case. So it is not all cut and dry.

    I also have a copy of good old Blackbox installed so that I can play games without anything else in the background. But that is probably just because I personally still have a strong affinity for that environment. And my CPU is not the strongest in the world either.

    There is also an interesting project called XGamer which will basically do what I do above by loading games in their own separate Openbox session, leaving your own desktop isolated in the background. May sound like a bit of a hack, but it is actually kind of fun to use.

    i tested 1.02 now it works fine with the radeon r600g driver but only 13fps. on my hd4770

    any suggestions for a new card? they should work faster on the hd7950 opensource driver

    My best suggestion is to use the binary blob. At least test, you will be surprised how it flies compared to open source one.

    Well, judging by this article: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...cie_gen2&num=2

    the 4890 or 6900 series would probably give you a decent sized boost. Although maybe still not enough to be playable.

    In the short term, your best bet is probably using the binary drivers.
