    Problem with new x86_64 ATI driver

    Hi,

    I just installed new 64 bit driver on my laptop. It's FC3 and kernel version is 2.6.10-1.766_FC3.

    I installed driver with yum, installation was flawless, but after rebooting, its still using old mesa driver. Output of fglrxinfo is as:
    Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
    OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.1)

    Why its not using new ati driver??

    any pointers?

    expecting tons of replies.

    Thank you in advance

    Anirudha

    Now this is a tad funny. I wanted to try ATI's drivers on Suse 9.2 instead of the packaged one's by Suse. To make everything work I only had to move the "xorg.conf" to "XF86Setup" in /etc/X11 and it worked off the bat. I had hoped to fix my crashing in both Wine and Cedega, but no success here. The drivers work since native games like Enemy Territory, UT2004 and Tux Racer work perfectly (and faster than previous 8.8.25).

    Hardware Specs
    CPU: AMD XP 3200+
    RAM: 1 GB PC-3200
    VIDEO: ATI 9600 Pro

    Sofware Specs
    Distro: Suse 9.2
    Kernel: 2.6.8-24.11
    ATI Drivers: fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1.i386.rpm
    X.org: 6.8.1-15.1

    I doubt that's the case. I think that the problem is in xorg.conf that ATI generates, however I'm not sure what part exactly.
    This is the ATI generated xorg.conf, that won't work:

    Did you check and see if you had all these packages installed before you installed the drivers?

    I get the exact same thing, but ONLY when I select DUAL HEAD Extended desktop or Dual Head Seperate Desktops. Clone Desktops or single monitor modes work great. I have a ATI RADEON 9600 SE with dual monitors hooked up.

    I would love to know what exactly is causing it to stop at "Configuring kernel parameters". I've tried about every setting in the xorg.conf I can think of. I'm even running xorg 6.8.2 with the ATI 8.10.19 driver in Fedora Core 3 2.6.9-1 kernel. I guess I should be happy it works with just one monitor or clone mode but I REALLY want an extended dual head desktop!

    well after some testing... I've found that the new driver is incompatible with radeonfb:mad:...

    when I try to swithc from X to console and then swith to X I have a corrupted screen and sometimes a X hang...

    I think that this should be fixed ASAP...

    Yes, it is a known issue that the fglrx driver cannot be used in conjunction with a frame buffer driver. As for your restart bug, it is covered here: http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=37

    If you want to use a framebuffer driver, use the vesafb one. It doesn't cause problems like the radeonfb driver. Sure it isn't accelerate, but who cares really? Either you are using X most of the time, or FB most of the time. The former case would benefit from using fglrx, the latter from radeonfb. The majority of people who complain about radeonfb and fglrx not working well together just log in and type startx right away 99% of the time anyways :duh:

    well first of all people buy the cards for use it without any restritions, well at least in theory.
    Second we shouldn't talk about the usage that other people make, there's a bug or a malfunction so it needs to be solved.
    That's my point of view.

    Try number 2. I have two things to say and it goes like this: Gentoo is soo much simpler than it looks and damn is it easy to configure your video card under this distro. An emerge here, opengl update there and voila! Gaming action in under 30 minutes (depending on missing dependancies). Everything works off the bat and if anything doesn't work, follow the gentoo wiki and voila again. I'm soo happy now. CS:S is running arround 25 - 35 FPS (DXLEVEL 70) at 1280x1024 on CS_COMPOUND under Cedega 4.3.0. Now if only I could get the mic to work under cedega... hehehe

    Well, what d'ya know? I have gentoo-sources-2.6.11-r5 kernel working with radeonfb AND the ati proprietry driver :) The good news is that using radeonfb vs vesafb is that there are no MTRR problems to fix :)

    Good thing I got this working as my GF really hates crappy looking things - and text scrolling by before X loads is .... well ..... crappy!
