Hi,

I just installed the d3 beta with wine. After patching wine the installation was successful, but when I start the game I get the "your graphic hardware is too old :p"-message. Is there any way to play d3 with the open source radeon drivers (xf86-video-ati with KMS)?

Or will there be in the future. Does anyone know which features the xf86-video-ati driver is missing and/or if those features are on the 'todo' list?

I know that I could use the fglrx-drivers, but since my system is running totally fine now and installing fglrx is a major pain in the ***, I would rather install windows on a separate partition..

Teegrins, danielcb!

Unfortunately, I know very little about using ATI graphics with Linux and I know about Diablo 3 even less (except for that it looks like Diablo 2 with a quick glance), so I don't really have any tips on it specifically. I would like to suggest you to, if you haven't yet, check the #winehq channel at irc.freenode.net where many a knowledgeable person oft dwell.


Good luck!

Well, how old is your graphics card to begin with?

Code:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Caicos [Radeon HD 6450]


Not one that is on Blizzards list.

And for D3: there are two patches on the winehq bugtracker. Without them I couldn't install the game.

Thanx for the patches, if u have HD 6450 why not use fglrx driver? U should get better performance with that.

A shot in the dark, but do you have media-libs/libtxc_dxtn installed? It adds some additional functions to Mesa that some games want, but it's patented and can't be added to it.

Thanks Etal! After installing media-libs/libtxc_dxtn it works.

@tomtomp because I really like the idea of opensource drivers and because I like KMS. Also I used fglrx in the past and got screenfreezes, kernel panics and the like.

What system are you running DIII on and how is the performance?

I've got very bad performance and _very_ low framerates. It's not playable, but I think that might be, because of the xf86-video-ati drivers?

My system:
Intel Core2Duo E8400 3.00 Ghz
ATI Radeon HD 6400 2GB DDR RAM
4GB RAM

Although not a super fast gaming system, it should be more than enough for good framerates on reasonable settings.

Hm... thanks.
I have a 512MB nvidia gforce 8400gs. I hope that is enough for DIII.
Will have to try once I got it.

So... I'm probably out of luck with my good old GMA4500 onboard graphics... :lol:
