sorry to bump an old thread. Long time user and lurker. I love the potential of TCL and am very close to converting my main desktop to it.
Using Core 4.2.
A project I am working on involves a Dell Optiplex GX260 which I have plugged a PCI-e ATI 7500 (I think it is about 128MB onboard) into (disabled the onboard Intel video within the BIOS). This is to be a media centre. Everytime I load Xorg-7.5-3d or Xorg-7.6-3d, it keeps loading the radeon driver, even when I blacklist it at boot time. This will not give me fullscreen video. I compiled ATI-FGLRX, but it comes up with an error regarding not detecting the adapter. So I made sure that the recently compiled extension is loaded first in onboot.lst.
Still the radeon driver loads (with blacklisting). It is hooked up to a 1080p display and the playback looks like a box surrounded in black, even when "fullscreen".
Is anyone able to help me get this semi-old ATI card working? Have I missed a thread somewhere detailing this?
If anyone is able to help me get the ATI 7500 (I will double check to confirm this model number later) with full-screen semi or proper 2D acceleration, I promise to submit a new extension, for XBMC, which is what I want this working for anyway.
