View Full Version : ATI driver?

Will there be a PBI for ATI graphic cards?
I've heard that ATI is not as open-source-friendly as NVidia. Correct?
It eats shit! Now there are two days from my first attend to compile an ATI driver for pc-bsd. I've done the job before in bsd 5.2 and, to test it I compiled the driver successfully on slack 10/r350/radeon 9600 pro. It seems like Mesa broke the source tree and with an older checkin < 05.4.2005 I'll get an working driver (on linux). Tried to manually patch source code so it could compile on 5.4 . When I attend to use test programs linked against SDL, I've got the pthread errors. Tried to use GLX in place of SDL. It just fucked up my screen.
To be continued...
It seems that this thread turns into my personal blog regarding ATI drivers.

and i'm readin it carefully cause i want my x600 on my notebook to get workin!
Ran NeHe's lesson 10 with GLX, looks fine for a second and then crashes. I do not yet understand why I compiles without problems and doesn't crash repeatedly on slack but I can't get it to work right now on pc-bsd.
