Radeon HD 4770


Ok, so... does a thread on Video drivers go into the Video forum, or the drivers forum???

I'm guessing Drivers; so here goes.

I've got a spiffy brand-new HD4770 video card in a machine I'm building and trying to put a Red Hat install on it. Once the video portion comes online, my screen goes techni-color on the bottom 2/3 and is quite unusable.

I reran the install in text mode and had no problems, but I 'm still no-joy at getting any GUI.

I've tried the latest Radeon and the generic driver with no luck.

Anybody have success with this critters? (or at least similar problems? or did I just get a dud card ...???)
