Re: Where is the ATI Radeeon ???

Hi Rich,

ATI is normally Ok, but in conjunction with Dell LapTop  ???. Mostly labeled
"Mobile". I can understand your frustration. Try this:

In  XFf86Config:
a)  Driver:"VESA "(Slow but working).
b)  Driver:"ati" (If you have it, nice working).
c)  Driver: "r128  (The ATI Rage128 driver).
Not sure this help, but may be an "approach".
