Question [ATI Radeon HD 4350] Is my graphic card (ati 4xxx sries) compitable to pc-bsd 9.1?
I'm an Ubuntu user, but for a hars reason I have to leave linux land!

Reson: My graphics card is manufactured by AMD. Here's my card details:
VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV710 [Radeon HD 4350]
The card series ATI Radeon HD 2xxx, 3xxx and 4xxx are no longer supported by new version of Catalyst!. Latest version of Catalyst that can provide to support the 4 series cards properly is Catalyst 12.6, but it does NOT support Xorg 1.13! Ubuntu 12.10 and most new distros (as in Fedora 18) come with Xorg 1.13.
So I have two options:
1. Roll-backing to Ubuntu 12.04 where Xorg 1.12 is used
2. Migrating to another operating system that can support my card. However, the new operating system must not be Windows!

I'm here for a clear question:
Is my graphic card supported by the newest PC-BSD?

Kind Regards

Default ATI support

Yes with 9.0 version (not 3D desktop effect) and the 9.1 ATI doesn't work well.
The problem suppport ATI card come from FreeBSD

The best way buy a cheap nvidia card

PC-BSD pour tous... Faut juste en parler...
PC-BSD for all ... You just talk ...

What about open source driver?
Is "ATI open source driver" pre-installed on pcBSD? does it work well for 4xxx series?
