i 8.6 mi facevano crashare la scheda, mandavano fuori segnali strani e lo schermo impazziva fino al
OUT of RANGE

grazie alla redazione per le news anche a queste ore

ad ogni modo speriamo che le 4800 abbiano in questi driver il supporto che cercavano da un mese
ArtX21 Luglio 2008, 21:18 #5
su linux l'installer è incapace di creare i pacchetti per opensuse.
almeno tra un pò arriverà il 3d anche con il driver opensource, che sto usando in questo momento e a parte il 3d che non è attivo funziona meglio di questi propietari.

@ per superbau

GNU/Linux

contento?

cmq instllato su ubuntu 8.04.1 con il bench fgl_glxgears e una x850 ho il 10% di performance in più ma mi riconosce sempre solo 128Mb di ram...

cavolo paolo addirittura a queste ore posti news?

cmq nn vedo l'ora di vedere come si comporta rv770 con finalmente dei driver ufficiali oltre che il rispario energetio (anche se nn leggo da nessuna parte "fix powerplay" o similare)
liquidator21 Luglio 2008, 21:50 #9
Finalmente hanno corretto il bug che impediva di generare direttamente i files *.deb senza estrarre e fixare il collegamento simbolico mancante...

Ma come mai su Linux la versione è 8.512?
thecatman21 Luglio 2008, 21:52 #10
minchia ma ne sistema di cose sto driver! mi sa che quasi quasi le nvidia hanno meno problemi di driver ne convenite?
