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?
I have AMD Radeon HD 4850, with the latest drivers. I just dont get several things, what is x.org? What is FGLRX? Also, what is RandR? And why in the info section of the control centre it says Catalyst version is 12.6, but Catalyst control centre is 2.14, what is the difference between Catalyst and Catalyst control centre?
