Actually, I believe somebody logged in a bug that DRI and E are mutually exclusive so far. Radeon 2D seemed mighty smooth here while I had it, ran KDE and KDE2 just peachy, low CPU util. on all 2D stuff. Windows/game related bugs and no support from ATI on questions made me trade up to a GF2 Ultra, though. Good tune, BTW. Isn't that off the C&C:RA2 soundtrack? Or was it TS?
P.S. Please forgive my idiot www mail if it attaches the whole digest, I'm trying to edjumacate it not to do that.
