    "Work well," is an understatement. It locks the machine hard. Forget doing HDTV, which even little Shuttle boxes do these days.

    Well you can try the pts iso in 2 ways:

    a) without option -> uses radeonhd (1.2.0 + 1 git patch as compile fix)

    b) with: live fglrx -> uses 8-3 as driver (currently)

    http://debian.tu-bs.de/project/kanot...tix-ng-pts.iso
    http://debian.tu-bs.de/project/kanot...ng-pts.iso.md5

    It has a nice game on it too Designed to run the PTS in live mode. With working internet connection via router you can also boot with

    live fglrx=8.40.4

    or

    live fglrx=8.39.4

    to force older drivers directly on bootup.

    I have some questions...
    What is PTS?
    Does this distribution has an opportunity to run latest fglrx with good performance?

    So, the new driver is out. The performance with it is better, but not enough to say "good".

    PTS stands for Phoronix Test Suite - a live cd for benchmarking - and you can play NEXUIZ for testing.

    Thanks for your comment.
    After your comment I understood that it`s better if I`ll stay using radeonHD and there is no necessary to try new fglrx 8.4 driver instead radeonhd.
    Still waiting new "good" fglrx...

    Got a quick question: since the only guide I can find is from September of last year, how would I install the radeonHD drivers? Is that guide still relevant, and if yes, do I literally copy what it says to type into the konsole?

    And to summarize, does radeonHd have drivers for an HD2600XT AGP, or am I going to be continually waiting.

    For what it's worth, I'm a bit dense on linux, so be gentle. If I ask a dumb question, I'm probably not trying to make a joke.

    yes if you mean this one: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...item=843&num=1

    I am using the 1.2.1 Radeonhd just fine on my H.I.S. 2600XT AGP 512MB GDDR3 IceQ Turbo
