I see, many people use ATI 9200 SE
, I also.
But this is true , This card is not supported for ATI and Mesa, ( drivers exist, but are old )
but you can use 3D Mesa

- I tested other app. on-line other app. and ... Graphic operations 58 FPS Linux, 66 FPS Windows
so this work ok, but when I open game Red Eclipse I have only about Lin 37 max - Win 130 max FPS ( on the wall),
and this is game for Linux and Windows , so something is wrong.
This can be problem with driver or this game is built a little differently on the two systems.
- In SuperTux Kart I don't see texture car when is the end of the race and turn on animation,
but maybe this is only bug i game.
I use LXDE, KDE work too fine. If you have problem with font, this s problem with driver, but I'm not sure , - I have this in KDE , LXDE
