my architecture is x86 Back to top darkluminan00bJoined: 06 Apr 2006Posts: 1 Posted: Thu Apr 06, 2006 10:30 pm Post subject: same here, and my arch is also x86 Back Thanks again for all the time and patience.... of course, I did do a kernel update. I had it working under FC3, which is why it's frustrating the hell out of me now.I know it's mostly me being Linux-stupid... his comment is here
Thanks for the tip, I'll look after my next attempt! Does anyone know the average turnaround time after a newer ATi driver gets released and then Livna-fied? -Ubence On Apr 13, 2006, at 04:22 PM, Lyvim Xaphir wrote: On Thu, 2006-04-13 You really should be using the livna drivers anyhow, IF you are going to be using one of the default kernels and not a custom kernel. Also, many Kernel updates tend to kick out the ATI modules, so you will need to perform these steps to reinstate the OpenGL drivers.
Ignore the part about running the "aticonfig" tool and click the Exit button. The current 8.23.07 that Livna repackages will do me no good in this respect because only the 8.24.8 driver has X1000 support. Kill the free variable! Now my 3D seems to be working!
We will be independent! I also found the installation instructions to be more complex then they needed to be and all the required packages listed were for a Red Hat distro...not SUSE. In the same directory, you should now have a new RPM that starts with the name "fglrx". Guess I'll just have to wait until it gets updated.
Registration is quick, simple and absolutely free. It installed without a hitch, however, I get this when I try to run aticonfig --initial as per the instructions:aticonfig: error while loading shared libraries: libfglrx_pp.so.1: cannot open shared object file: linux_0Apr 23, 2006, 12:47 AM Quote: I knew I'd figure it out eventually. Hopefully it reads "ATI".
I have to ctrl-alt- backspace to get back to the command prompt. Join our community today! FC5 should be better in many respects.

LinuxQuestions.org > Forums > Linux Forums > Linux - Hardware ATI Radeon x800xl driver install User Name Remember Me? Notices Welcome to LinuxQuestions.org, a friendly and active Linux Community. linux_0Apr 13, 2006, 2:08 PM Did you use the installer, the RPM or a repo package? I'm trying to use the ati installer (ati-driver-installer-8.23.7-x86_64.run) in sid and I'm always getting errors; I suspect I'm missing some packages.
We're one step closer, but I got this on rebooting after running aticonfig:(II) LoadModule: "fglrx"(WW) Warning, couldn't open module fglrx(II) UnloadModule: "fglrx"(EE) Failed to load module "fglrx" (module does not exist, this content All good. Today, I updated the kernel source (2.6.16-gentoo) and xorg-x11-1.0.2. I just saved the .run package to my desktop and ran it from a terminal window.

but a new vid card isn't an option for me right now. Now within yast/hardware, when I click on "graphics card and monitor", i do not get a response.....(A quick blue progress bar where it is gathering info, but...no answer!)ooopS! mdd1963Apr 12, 2006, 7:39 PM Well, as I had both an FGLRX (showed locked/protected, not recommended to remove?)and and an ATI installer routine done, and since my YAST/hardware/graphics card and monitor

The nVidia card is the hands-down winner when comparing the 3D quality, overall video quality, or ease of driver installation between the two. That's it! mdd1963Apr 8, 2006, 11:52 AM "It was just downloading the binary from SuSE, installing it with YaST and running sax from the command line."Is the procedure the same for Suse 10.0, Usually problems occur if you don't have the proper packages installed.
ZoronApr 23, 2006, 12:41 AM I knew I'd figure it out eventually. If the install goes right, enteringglxinfo | grep rendershould yield:Renderer: ATI Techonologies Incorporatedinstead of the Mesa Indirect. Death to X5! Once it has completed these tasks, it will present you with the initial Setup window where you will select "Generate Distribution Specific Driver Package" and click the Continue button.
There's nothing that will work worth a darn for at least a few months (until drivers get made by the F/OSS community) on that sucker if that happened. For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. You are all done! linux_0Apr 14, 2006, 11:30 AM Quote: ATI's Linux drivers already fall far behind those of nVidia.I am curious, with their announcing a long-term partnership with Microsoft, if their Linux support will
