|yesterday i was setting up xorg-x11 on my g4 with ati radeon 9000 gpu, but i got completely lost in the driver selection...
as i see it there are 4 drivers i can choose from:
1 - radeon driver provided by my kernel (development-sources-2.6.6)
2 - radeon driver provided by xorg
3 - ati driver provided by xorg (also usable for radeon tells man xorg.conf)
4 - radeonfb framebuffer driver provided by my kernel
(5) - ati-drivers from ati itself, but they don't have ppc drivers, so this is no option for me...
what are the differences between these drivers, are there advantages/disadvantages?
thanx for any advice!!
