I managed to get Direct Rendering (required for EVE and many other apps) on my ATI X1600 mobile GPU (laptop - HP NX9420). I never managed to get this before and it was the only requirement I was missing so far to run EVE on linux. If I manage to run eve I will post here the guide for it.. Gonna find out in an hour (I has a slow connection and it takes time to download EVE)


The guide I was using is located at for Ubuntu 7.10, ATI Cards.. I used method two (manual installation - it uses a newer driver that supports direct rendering) on a fresh ubuntu 7.10 installation.. If you have any questions please ask :)

The biggest pain was to get direct rendering to work on my Ubuntu Laptop (Dell Inspiron 9300, ATI Mobility Radeon X300, 8.42.x driver)

The actual EVE installation was great. Just install the package file, click Eve-Online icon and it downloaded all necessary data files.

It runs about at the same FPS as under Windows XP on the same machine, but has some graphics glitches:

- Portraits seem a bit too bright
- In-Station textures are mashed together (texture repeats itself)
