ATi Drivers & Linux
Some questions for ATI from our HardForum readers about ATI's Linux drivers. Some of these answers will likely make things a bit more clear for our Linux users
1.) "..Nvidia's (video driver) installer is not distro specific, and can be used in varying setups. ATI's are specific to Red Hat from what I have seen. Nvidia’s aren't perfect, but are about on the same level as their Windows drivers. They can get a little behind in support for hardware, but they don't fall too far behind."
ATI's Proprietary drivers are not Red Hat specific, they are currently packaged in RPMs for convenience for dominant market players. Distribution vendors including SuSE and Gentoo regularly simply repackage the drivers for the convenience of their distribution users.
There are a large number of users covering SuSE, Red Hat, Gentoo, Debian and Mandrake. Careful examination of the documentation and download site will show only glibc and XFree requirements.
