I'm agree with youDuring 2003 and 2004 a lot of company like Sapphire, GeCube, Powercolor, Asus etc made some cards that they sold like Radeon 9600Pro or even 9600XT but they have TSOP memory with 4-5ns so they worked at 400-450mhz.One example is the Sapphire Radeon 9600pro EZ Advanced (I have used it for few months years ago, and it had TSOP hynix at 4ns) so they were Radeon 9600LE Real 9600pro and XT used BGA memory at 600mhz So if I were you, I would use a TI4600
Then i installed the latest radeon drivers. but when i try to enable radeon from gnome \"screens & Graphics\" control panel, i am now left stuck in 800x600 resolution and it automatically reverts to vesa driver.
Other then that i have nothing installed so maybe i need to be pointed to some tutorial to get dependency packs. After fresh gutsy install no updates installed even when software updates informs there are updates. I manually installed latest radeon drivers from the link given above, its version is 6.7.196. I installed these 2 packages.1. xserver-xorg-video-ati-dbg_6.7.196+git2071112-0ubuntu0tv_i386.deb2. xserver-xorg-video-ati_6.7.196+git2071112-0ubuntu0tv_i386.deb
reconfiguring the xserver results in the same problem, it detects ati as appropriate choice RV280 \"Radeon 9200 PRO\" but it still freezes.I manually changed xorg.conf file and selected driver to radeon from ati and it still gets stuck. 59ce067264
