Windows Vista Resolved, Unresolved and Desesperate Issues

ATI openGL Drivers, Second Life and Vista. What a shame!

This is not an article. This is only the nth blog to exhaust ATI and convince them to release a ?&%&% openGL Vista compatible driver… 😦

We’re talking about ATI. Not of  small unknown Korean hardware company.

For some more details on this issue, please, pick an article randomly among the tons available on the net.

I suggest this one from Kelly Adams, another guy a little bit nervous with ATI….

In the meanwhile, appreciate the fabolous 3D effect of Linden Second Life app:

Of course I tried. Very faithful in the Vista openGL emulation sytem.

And this is the magic moment, my entry in Linden Country:

Nice, isn’t it?

For news duty, I have an Acer Aspire Notebook with 2 GB of RAM and an ATI  Radeon X700 driver board

Ah….. I was missing….

If you try to run Second Life on an XP Guest OS hosted by Virtual PC 2007 in Vista, no miracle’s allowed.

Questo non è un’articolo, bensì l’ennesimo tentativo di stimolare ATI a produrre un driver openGL per consentire agli utilizzatori di Vista di fruire di alcune funzionalità 3D, previste a prescindere in alcune applicazioni tra cui Linden Second Life.

Ovviamente, ci permettiamo sarcasmo e critiche perché parliamo del colosso ATI e non dell’ultimo produttore coreano un po’ sf…ortunato.

Nella marea di articoli disponibili, ne consiglio uno a caso, quello del buon blogger Kelly Adams: anche lui leggermente incavolato con ATI.
Nel frattempo godetevi quel paio di instantanee sopra riprodotte che frustrano i desideri d’accesso al fantomatico mondo Linden.

Per dovere di cronaca, informo che l’evento occorre su un Notebook Acer Aspire 9502 con 2 Gb di RAM dotato di una fiammantissima, ma priva di benzina, ATI Radeon X700.

Per evitare l’esperimento a qualcuno, Second Life non funziona nemeno su XP SP2 ospitato da Virtual PC 2007 installato su Vista. Nessun miracolo, quindi….

  1. I’m rather annoyed myself on this one. Any luck? I’ve been trying since Oct. to find a way around this hardware incompatiblity…

  2. I’m in the same boat. Also thought I’d try to run SL in Virtual PC 2007 w/ WinXP Pro SP2. No such luck. This is so not cool. As someone told me, “being on the bleeding edge hurts”…
