[ubuntu] state of open source ATI driver vs. the closed driver for 'old' cards?view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I wonder what the state / performance of the open source ATI driver is now, when compared to the closed source driver for 'old' cards. currently, I'm stuck with Ubuntu 8.10, as that's the last edition that comes with the 'old' ATI drivers, that support my ATI Mobility FireGL V5200 card. (which is 'old' according to ATI/AMD, even though it's a 3 year old top-of-the-line card). (Hardware)

[ubuntu] Please help! Replacing graphics card...view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I hope I'm OK posting this here, since it's really a question about hardware and not Ubuntu. I'm traveling in Vietnam, and my laptop has developed a serious graphics problem. Basically, anything involving hi-res graphics freezes the computer, but I can still boot in text-only mode and everything works fine. So it would seem to be the graphics card, right? (Hardware)
