Fairly new to linux in general, I've tried it multiple times in the past but never really stuck. I've had a T21 for ages and decided to use it when I'm not in the mood to sit at my desktop on the couch.
Anyway I've installed lubuntu 12.04 on it and have been happy with the operating system for all but one reason... I can't do anything about the poor video performance. Now I realize that a Savage S3 MX/IX with only 8mb won't ever be anything special. I've done some googleing and found a few things, such as Xorg server no longer supports this card (correct me if i'm wrong please) as it did in a 2.6.x kernel based os. glxgears gets all of 3-5 fps. 240p youtube videos absolutely kills it where as in xp which i dont want to go back to could handle it fairly smoothly.
There is no additional drivers in jockey. I've downloaded a dri savage s3 driver but fails to install because it requires a 2.6 kernel.. I've searched synaptic for a 2.6 kernel to no avail.
If anyone would have any suggestions for me to try it would be greatly appreciated.
