    bah! it still doesnt work with my gpu. fglrx works great with the gpu, but using the latest ati drivers actually cripples the card. glxgears shows over 14000 with fglrx. when i install the latest ati driver it shows 400. so clearly some issues. and i have to enable composite mode in xorg.conf and whitelist the fglrx for compiz. somebody screwed up somewhere. a lot of people with my card and with the 1950 cards also report problems.

    Be happy that your setup works... i have been unable to upgrade to this driver to FGLRX 8.42 due to frequency issues that arose with my monitor. ( it kept tyring to send 75khz horizonal refresh on a line that usually gets 80khz on the setting i use which is 1280x1024 )


    I think your in the wrong forum, but as for Direct 3D, try using Wine to run those apps, but keep in mind that it's not complete and will take a while to get almost everything working... the main thing is to get the OpenGL driver working first.
