SDB Talk:Radeon

Jump to: navigation, search

I think this article needs to be updated to work within /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf when it comes to performance tuning. Please check this URL on the ARCH wiki as an example that we might use as an starting point. People who want to tune need a source of information to determine what they can tweak according to their specific AMD/ATI graphical hardware. Therefore I added on the wiki page a link to the xorg wiki where in my opinion these info is to be found. Is this correct? -akaper

good ol' xorg.conf is just split onto many files under /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d and the two are interchangeable. For section "Device" there is /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf, as well. Perhaps tweaks might go there. Good refs: SDB:Configuring_graphics_cards#4th_thing_to_try_.28edit_.2Fetc.2FX11.2Fxorg.conf.d.2F_directory.29, -acsaf
Thnx! I wasn't aware of oldcpu's work on this (It never came up in my search efforts(???). How to edit this article is however unclear to me: should we just refer to oldcpu's posts or copy paste the radeon related stuff?

Okay, just finished applying the new wiki style guidelines and a bit of a rewrite. I hope you guys don't mind me barging in like this. But I will soon find out, when it is reviewed. I would like to propose to move the manual tweaking options to the SDB troubleshooting article. Imho this is an article about installation and not about tweaking. And I think this article is a tad too long now -akaper
