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 r300_dri.so in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/
it only has r200_dri and radeon_dri.so.
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..
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.
