OS: KateOS 3.2
ATI Radeon x800XL
I installed KateOS and updated all my packages from its repositories. But I'm still having problems with no hardware acceleration. As far as I can tell i have transparency turned off (since the option isnt available from Windows Tweaks). I'll my suspicion as the problem.
from xorg.conf Section "Device" Identifier "VESA Framebuffer" Driver "vesa" #VideoRam 4096 # Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate EndSection
Do I need to install ATI's proprietary drivers (which requires Xfree86 whatever that is)? Or would one of the alternatives be better. I'm just looking for 2d acceleration openGL/3d acceleration is not a big concern for me.

I go super fast again
My old ATI Radeon 7000 is not in the list. Don't you know, will it work with this drivers?
I too have a Radeon 7000 and I'm afraid that there is no good news for us regarding drivers. I spent a long time searching and was not successful in coming up with a real driver just a few changes in xconf that do almost nothing.
Radeon 7000 users are out of luck....although it is a very old card.
