hardware-happy, part 2November 1, 2007 9:25 am hardware
The things got more interesting when I changed original nv 5200 fx to ati 9800 pro. First, the wrapping effect immediately disappeared (does it mean ati and nv drivers read DDC dirrefently)? Second, the output is now _deadly_ slow. Scrolling (one line!) in xchat window is visible (takes a good fraction of second!). Tried both XAA and EXA acceleration. It seems something important is missing… DRI is also a mistery – in Xorg.0.log it is said to be enabled but glxinfo clams it is not.
Looking for some repository with xorg 7.3 for gutsy – may be it would help.
