Subject: Re: [SLE] ati

I have an ati all in wonder pro, it has 32 megs, and it dows not work, at least
until now I have not had any lucky trying to use it unser linux suse 6.4, I will
try with suse 7.0, but anyway it is ridiculous to have such a fine card and not to
be albe to use it under linux easly, beside the support that suse gives sucks, I
am sure that if all linux companies give the same kind of support then it will
matter much if microsoft keeps giving us shit like millenium, any way works with
most of hardware, in the mean while suse linux all they can sy about a support
demand is something like we are no longer giving support for suse 6.4, only for
suse 7.0..... that is more than ridiculous, I bought a box suse distribution for
full price, and a u$ 200 video card, and can not use not the one not the other,
sax frees with this video card, what am I suppouse to do? change the video card
everytime I will run linux? and who gives support I ask again... suse as a
corporation? no they do not, the mailling list? until now yes we may say so, even
if until now I hae not had any real solution, I am affraid that no matter if suse
is a great distribution, with out a real support no matter how good the
distrubution be, this is a complain about suse as a corporation , a corporation
that has no respect for its coustomers, a corporation that do not take care for
its coustomers troubles with their product, a product for with they pay in
cash.... I understand that most of the facts about installation must be solved by
the user, but I do know that things like for example the adecuation of a
distribution for being able to use a video card sucn an ATI must be a part of the
corporation in this case suse, or at least give a real solution to those of us who
have bought the suse distribution and an ATI video card, I am really frustrated
because not being able to use a computer just because the OS do not accept the
video card and no matter how many times you mail of fax the corporation you just
get no response from them..... well makes you think about the sense of buying a
legal product ana paying full fee for it, do not want to disturb any of you, just
that I am very ungry about this suse and ati video card, cheers
