Xubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft

Tested and works "out-of-the-box".

  • ATI Radeon Mobility X600 (runs with the "ati" driver)
  • CardBus with Netgear WG511T wireless card
  • Network card
  • Sound (speakers, headset, front mic)
  • Suspend & hibernate
  • Wireless

ATI X600 & fglrx

Following the installation guide, no fatal problems have been encountered so far.

However, suspend and hibernate seems broken when the FGLRX drivers are used. Upon resume the screen remains black with only the mouse pointer and highlighted icons showing. No windows are drawn, switching to terminal and back doesn't help. You will have to restart X (Ctrl+Alt+Backspace).
