 Stupid Refresh

For now 800x600.
I'm changin to 1024x768 when ATI releases linux drivers for the Radeon 9000.
Now, with VESA2 drivers I can't get more than 60Hz, and that hurts my eyes.

There are drivers for the Radeon 8500. In the website it says:

"XFree86 currently provides hardware 2D acceleration for most ATI graphics adapters. For new products it normally takes at least 12 weeks from retail product shipment for driver support to be become publicly available."

However ATI is not developing drivers, it provides information to 3rd party developers that want to make Linux drivers.

It's the last ATI card I will buy.
I hate to say that NVidia is better than ATI, but at least it has a better Technical Support.

I was checking their site and yeah they have released binary drivers for ati radeon 8500 and above. The 3d portion i think.

At last they are pulling out their fingers and providing better linux support. Ill give em a year to see if they can fix up things and provide proper decent drivers either through themselves or dri, i dont mind. If they cant ill stick with nvidia. As it goes all of the linux gamers are running nvidia. Oh well ati's own fault for not having the balls to provide the proper linux support, they originally were going to provide.

(wants a radeon 9700 with proper linux support :D -- curently got geforce 4 mx 440, before this i had ati rage 128. )

ATI doesn't release any Linux drivers, they just give the information to the Linux community so that the community can develop drivers. You can visit gatos.sourceforge.net for those drivers, or you can use the framebuffer device to get whatever resolution you want.

I've tried gatos drivers and it doesn't work. Anyway Radeon 9000 cards will be supported in XFree86 4.3.0 and I hope it will be supported in the next gatos release too.

 Size: The right way!

 
 by orcrist on: Nov 27 2002

Since my original comment appears as anonymous and is deep in a thread besides, I'll post this again in the main thread:

I guess I shouldn't be surprised noone has mentioned this, since I only found out by chance, but I'm still surprised at how few people know:
Don't set your resolution based on what size you want things (like fonts, etc.) to appear, that's the Windows way: set your resolution to whatever your hardware can handle (gracefully) and then use the "DisplaySize" option in XF86Config; it goes in the "Monitor" section and should look something like this:
Section "Monitor"
Option "CalcAlgorithm" "IteratePrecisely"
HorizSync 30-95
Identifier "Monitor[0]"
ModelName "AutoDetected"
Option "DPMS"
VendorName "AutoDetected"
VertRefresh 58-75
UseModes "Modes[0]"
DisplaySize 308 228
EndSection

The above is for a Dell Latitude C800 (15.1" display), which I'm using at 1600x1200 without having to set font sizes higher, etc.
This option essentially tells X what your physical screen size really is which allows X to adjust a lot of things (fonts at the very least) to their proper dpi, so you get the best of both worlds: high resolution, normal-sized fonts. Of course not all programs respect this (acroread, cough), but in the ones that do you get the additional bonus of a 1:1 correlation with real world size, i.e. if you set zoom to 100% in Open Office the preview will be almost exactly the same size as a physical piece of paper laid over the screen.

enjoy!

 1280x1024 is evil

1280x1024 is the wrong aspect ratio. 1280x960 is correct and what I use.

The only limiting factor for resolution ought to be the refresh rate of your monitor, not the size of things on screen.

Everything should scale according to the actual DPI of the display (this is also related to the "pixel sizes for web pages is evil" rant).

But it's not the case, so it sucks.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
