I've posted this question on centos forums 4 days ago, and got no answers, and I hope it's not rude to post it in here.
I have an old ati graphics card, with a rv350 chip (radeon 9550) - I know it's ancient but I have no choice at the moment -.
I'm new to centos, I'm using centos 6.4, and I wanted to install the legacy fglrx driver.
I noticed when installing 13.10 I was confronted with the question of whether to use the x.org driver or the proprietary fglrx driver. I went with the default x.org, but I'd like to know is someone knows the difference and/or advantage of one over the other??
I was just wondering if anyone has used the new drivers on karmic yet? I was wondering how well they work. The last release (9.9) gave me all sorts of problems. Also, if I install fglrx from the repositories will that install the new 9.10 driver? And one more thing, does the new driver help much with battery life on your laptop?
