Wine, games and open ATI driver?

worth on Fedora 13, AthlonX2, 2G RAM, ATI Radeon x2300. Unfortunately, ATI dropped support for non-HD cards in the proprietary driver, we have to use an open radeon. So here. The goal is to cut yourself in POP Warrior Within or Fallout 3. On Windows it all ran. Under Vayn cheto crashes. In general, any Windows game that Direct3d uses or slows down or crashes. Even Diablo II. When you put DirectDraw in it, it flies. Direct3d slows down. Directx in Wine set from winetricks. Attention q... Read more

Video Card Selection & quot; Pro & quot; entry level series?

Worth link selection of video cards. I'm a mediocre 3d, and I run 3d editors occasionally for specific goals, as a rule, to render some kind of model.

Will all CUDA cha... Read more

Vidyashka as a gift?

I ask this question precisely because I hardly play computer games on my PC (I play on the phone or Flash toys, I don’t have time), so I apologize for my playing botanism.

We bought him a relatively good 23 inch monik for the New Year, but now I understand that it is clearly not enough. I thought and thought, and decided to give him another video ca... Read more

Missing permissions on ATI 6970?

In principle, everything is quite simple. I love to play in windowed mode. Before that there were different video cards, x1950, 2900, 4870, gt260, 5830, now 6970.

The remaining 1280 * 800 and 1280 * 960, immediately after them - 1680 * 1050. I really want to return the usual resolution, but the classic meth... Read more

Anti-aliasing thumbnails in Compiz?

The thumbnails in Compiz look like this: There is no smoothing, nothing is possible to understand. This is not very convenient. And with the rest of the plugins (window previews, scale, expo) the same thing, of course. At the same time, Metacity with compositing enabled (/ apps / metacity / general / compositing_manager) shows: Torsion of settings (ccsm) did not help (it seems, I tried everything related to texture filtering, mipmapping and bicubic filtering. Is there a way to fix ... Read more
