I have an IBM T43p (June '05 or so release) which has an ATI FireGL
v3200 (Mobility). In XP, it isn't possible to try out drivers from the
vendor, I am limited to drivers from IBM.
In Linux, I have been able to install proprietary drivers from ATI, but
there is no selection for the 'Mobility' version of the v3200 on ATI's
website; the install has not complained though, and basic stuff appears
to be fine (GUI is ok, glxgears, etc).
In both XP and Linux, chimera will crash when attempting to use volume
maps. It appears fine with pdb files, although I typically work with
volume data so haven't rigorously tested that.
I have been assuming that the FireGL v3200 (Mobility) is the same logic
as the v3200, at least documentation I have been able to find seems to
Does anyone know (or suggest) a chimera-stable driver version from ATI
that I might test? I might at least be able to get it to work in Linux,
as the driver suite downloaded from ATI appears to cover most
thanks for any suggestions,
