Re: To Any One Who is Having ATI issue Here is Some Help

Isn't anyone watching hd video in here? I agree that the desktop is usable with current drivers, but if you are using the same computer for multimedia stuff you can forget all current gnome3 based desktops with ati cards....

How's HD video playback?

Re: international mirrors for latest and incoming?

yeah well whenever I change that, only the main mint server adress changes - that is not where the bulk of the packages are - just trying to update a fresh install here - takes ages.....

alright - seems this is going somewhere.

Re: ATI drivers fix

although it's not a mint porblem per se - i hear things are the same on the ubuntu side of things and I presume that most other distros with similar package versions suffer the same problem atm.... i do not concur, in ubuntu 11.10 it works perfectly fine with the default drivers from the repository...

LMDE live-cd on recent ati cards

I was checking back in on lmde - or was planning to. But somehow I can't get the live cd to boot. Now I know that with my radeon 5850 (approximately *g*) no linux live-cd ever boots right up, but usually passing xforcevesa and nomodeset on boot makes it work. Not so with the most recent lmde respin....

I've also tried it meanwhile. A definite improvement. The system in general is in fact usable now. Only HD-video playback still isn't working the way one would hope

Re: To Any One Who is Having ATI issue Here is Some Help

hrm I'm back on mint 11, so I can at best reinsall mint12 on my distrohopping partition (doing that richt now in fact) to test, but if this driver works passably then I strongly suggest maintaining up-to-date fglrx packages on the mint repos because mint 12 as-is is completely unusable on current at...
