The Chimera graphics bug page
lists a FireGL V3400 (desktop) that also causes system crashes on volume
display. I helped Gary with that and the latest ATI driver had the same
problem. We did not find a driver that works.
> 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
> imply that.
> 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
> late-generation cards.
