r_picmip resetting to one everytime I exit and join a new server on linux
As the title suggest my autoexec is seta r_picmip "10" but it always resets to "1" everytime I join a game. Having to do vid_restart everytime I join a new server. Im running ubuntu 12.10 and already tried the seta r_lastValidRenderer as the suggested solution. Any help will be appreciated.
seta r_picmip 10 is in repconfig.cfg and autoexec.cfg if there is one?
If you have an autoexec, and you don't \writeconfig autoexec after a change, it will not save.
If you do use /writeconfig autoexec.cfg you need to find the file and remove any "web_" prefix cvar lines from it, or it will stop the start a match or practice game options you chose later from running.

I'm guessing you either missed the point about putting trailing space there, or something else happened :)
Here's what I did the first time I searched the forums. Went on quake and typed in r_lastvalidrenderer and got "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 series" and I went to my autoexec in my baseq3 folder and at the end of my long config put in "seta r_lastvalidrenderer "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series" " my r_picmip in autoexec is already 10
You dont need to use autoexec at all. If you completely remove using it your video settings well always stay the same unless you change it yourself and vid_rsrt. Same thing for weapon binds and everything else but chat spams? or something like that
Adderall, He needs to use autoexec with the single command. That's to work around an ATI/QL bug. No other stuff (like r_picmip) is needed in autoexec if the work-around is in place.
DeadIyNoob, if you did what you say to the letter, you did it wrong. Again: paste my commands into a terminal, paste results back in here. We can't help you otherwise.
Lam is that needed for *.nix users that have ati issues? Thats good to know if it is. DeadIyNoob have you tried these drivers. Good place to find ati drivers is here -> http://benchmark3d.com/

It's needed to stop QL from resetting picmip to 1 with ATI proprietary drivers. There are open drivers and there are other issues people might have - this workaround won't help there.

Why do you link Windows drivers to a Linux user? Is that your way of suggesting him to switch OS? :)
I didn't even think about taht when I linked them. I dont see that driver for *.nix ;/
