i8000 Rage 128 Mobility Speedup!
- Hey everyone,
I just bought by my i8000 Dell and been working on it for a little
less then a week. I found some info here and some other places that
had a XF86Cfg file to get the high resolution. That worked fine.. but
the only problem was that screensavers and everything was slow and
CHOPPY..... I figured out how to speed things up a bit.. The old cfg
file had some uneffecient values in it.. I tweeked them a bit and now
in XFree86 V4 it runs much better.. .change your Device section for
the card to this:
ChipSet "ATI Rage 128 Mobility LF (AGP)"
BoardName "Rage 128 Mobility LF"
Of course you may have to change the Identfier.... If you have a
diffrent Chipset (RL?) You can just modify the ChipSet ID to reflect
the extention it *should* work.. but if it doesn't check your X log
file, it will list the ChipSets supported.... Oh Yeah..
Now if anyone would be so kind as to tell me how to make my sound
not so freaking choppy, I am using the newest Alsa Drivers.
