godsend: eviljames on freenode

EDIT: While eviljames has a working card, I have duplicated this problem again with his exact setup. I will need to pick his brain about installation methods, and compare version numbers and see where the problem is.



After 4 months of begging, prostituting, and offering to clean the apartments of various reputable developers and sysadmins in the slackware linux community, I finally found someone who'd gotten this card working on Slackware.

You'll need to install slackware64, and while installing slackware64-current is not recommended for most users, this seems to be the working magic combination.

His working specifications:

Kernel: 2.6.32.6-kms #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jan 27 18:05:09 PST 2010 x86_64 Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5200 @ 2.50GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

libdrm: 2.4.17
mesa: 7.7
xorg: stock from slackware64-curent

And here's the xorg.conf:
