hey, so it turns out that the extreme lag I have on some of my old HP laptops under linux is all due to a open source driver issue and since ati has dropped all support for old cards I have spent a hour or so looking for their flgx proprietary driver from circa 2007... namely the linux catalyst 7.12 (or the last one that supports RS200)

I understand I would be stuck with a old kernel but it would still beat using XP on the HP laptops... trouble is all the links to www2.ati all the links to the files I can find are dead...

are these drivers gone for good?
