Mobility Radeon X1300


This page is dedicated to getting the Radeon X1300 working under Sabayon Linux with XGL and Beryl. This has been tested on a Dell Inspiron 6400 notebook. I cannot make any guarantees it will work anywhere else, but please add a line in the Working section if you have another laptop or desktop it works under.


Thanks to Chris Vecchitto and his Enable/disable_XGL_or_AIGLX_after_Install page.
