Re: Couple extremely general linux questions...
My buddy installed SUSE 9.2 and got it working with his 9700 Pro. At least he got UT2004 running. He still hasn't got the patch to go on there yet but he got cedega and from what he tells me it should be a piece of cake. So perhaps games will run with that ATI driver. I dunno... I'm tempted to try it but at the same time it's obvious to me from watching him struggle with it that it's definitely not as simple as Windows where things "just work" for the most part. It seemed to run smooth enough but I'm also curious to see how much performance I'd be giving up by going to their Linux drivers vs. the XP implementation.
He plugged his USB thumb drive in (256MB) and it took off and recognized it just fine. I was impressed with that.
