Cinema Display on Linux

I received all the new hardware I need to hook my Windows XP and Fedora/Suse boxes up to the 23-incher. So I started to hook it up last night. Windows was easy. I did have to plug in a VGA monitor in order to install the Radeon 9600 LE drivers, but then everything just worked. As for Linux, that's a different story. I can't seem to download these drivers - it just doesn't work. I sent an e-mail to ATI Support, but that resulted in an auto-reply with this link that results in a bunch of links and suggestions, but no downloads. Anyone know where to get Linux drivers for a Radeon 9600 LE card?

2 minutes later: After posting this, I tried the download again. It worked this time. Figures. A kid's birthday party and a concert will likely keep me from tinkering again until tomorrow. Of course, there's a bug show tomorrow and a friend is throwing us a baby shower. Aahhh, living life is so much better than tinkering with technology.

Oh man, I am trying to move to Colorado Springs or Denver in the next few months but damn I wish I was there by now to see Todd at Red Rocks. I live in Florida and he never comes here AFAIK. Soon enough, I will get away from this swampy hell hole and get back where the air is rare.

I've had enough bad luck with ATI Linux drivers that I finally gave in and only use Nvidia cards on my Linux boxes. I still love my ATI under windows, but Nvidia seems to be a little ahead of them for Linux.

Matt, what is the verdict? Does the Apple display work well with video modes that Windows and that ATI card use? If it does then it is going to be hard for me to resist getting one! :)

The verdict so far? The Cinema Display works great with my PowerBook (as expected) and it was pretty easy to setup on Windows with a Radeon 9600 LE card. Linux is a different story - I continue to bang my head against the wall. Of course, if I knew more about Linux and ATI supported their Linux drivers better - I'd probably have it working by now. I'm sure it's possible.

I'm sure you know this, but is a great resource for ATI products. Back when I was performing the same "head vs wall" contests in getting my 9500 to work in Linux, I found a ton of help there.

Hey Matt, one of the GNOME developers has a post that may help you with this:
