Hi,

I currently have xfree 4.3.99.16 (unstable).
The purpose of this choice was to have the Radeon 9600 supported.
Now, emerge would like to downgrade to the new stable version 4.3.0-r4.

Does it support the Radeon 9600 ? Does it work fine for the Powerbook 15" ?

Actually, I would prefer to be sure before I do the upgrade.
Did any of you try this out ?

Regards,

Ok, the upgrade is done now. Not to say it was smooth (I had to reconfigure X from scratch afterwards) but it finally works.

Regards,

Actually I started with 4.3.99.16 and 2.6.1-r1 following your recommendation: it worked well.

Two days ago I saw that the 4.3.99.xx disappeared from the portage tree so I thought it might mean I could upgrade/downgrade (I do not know which is right) to the stable version but I was very concerned.

Now I did it I think it works exactly as before (not worse not better). I still use the same configuration files as you mention on your web page.

Thanks for making it available !

Xavier
