    Default Open source radeon driver with Xpress 200 chipset?

    I am using :-
    1. Fedora Core 4
    2. Xorg 6.8.2

    the open source driver does not seem to work for me.
    It gives a message like: -

    No chipset found ......

    also i dont have in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/

    it only has r200_dri and

    Is that the reason that my chipset is not detected.

    If yes then do i have to reinstall Xorg and mesa to get radeon to work....

    Also i wanted to know the following..

    1. the features currently supported by readeon driver on the chipset. (eg.. 2D,3D accel, AIGLX, will compiz work,)

    2. glxgears FPS. I currently get 1600 with fglrx driver..

    Thank You,

    You need to upgrade for open-source R300/400 support as it didn't happen until X.Org 7.1 where as you're still using 6.8.2.

    The Xpress 200 has really been a black sheep on Linux... The open-source support for this IGP is quite poor. You may have a bit more luck using the binary fglrx driver.
