Kernel 2.6.20 requires some patching (see fglrx patches section). 8.34.8: Radeon Xpress 1250 support, X-Video on x86_64 fix, hibernation mode fix. The system tries to start X but it can't, and get a "no screens found" error. Now I have upgraded to Ubuntu Dapper and I have lost the 3D acceleration. It might be easier to --reinstall your kernel binary package once your linux-source is unpacked... https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-users/2006-February/068204.html

Please don't use the radeon driver as that does not have 3D support.Hope the above helps and please let me know how it goes.Cheers!stevenEdit: Added second guide. The current 8.14.13 has shown 400% improvement over using the open source radeon driver: 1200 FPS for glxgears1!

To do so download this file: libGL.so.1.2 and then copy it to the /usr/lib/ directory. Since Ubuntu is among the distributions of Linux that has no compunctions about putting binary drivers in its repositories, installing the binary drivers is normally relatively easy, especially as there are Power saving Power saving is much better than with the radeon driver, but doesn't work in dual-screen configuration (see How to make use of Graphics Chips Power Management features).

Depending how recently updated your Edgy installation is, you You may be able to preserve VideoOverlay acceleration if you explicitly remove the OpenGLOverlay using: Option "VideoOverlay" "True" and Option "OpenGLOverlay" "False". If you don't want to reboot for some reason, you may manually shut down Xorg, unload any old "drm", "radeon" or "fglrx" modules and then start Xorg again. The computer started up fine, but was extremely unstable and crashed in about 5 minutes of work.

It seems for some reason using sideport memory (the card's onboard memory only) leads to an apparent system crash although the logs show successful initialization of DRI. Cue fanfare!I have painfully reconstructed the steps that I took to get it working (part of the problem was that I thought I had it working and started plowing ahead on That systema was Breezy. It might be necessary to create a symlink to get accelerated OpenGL: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/dri /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri AMD64 users: It may also be necessary to update /etc/profile if using GDM.
While the open-source drivers are fine for everyday computer use, they do not work well when trying to do cool graphical things like running OpenGL screensavers or XGL. However, the version that comes with 8.39.4 doesn't seem to handle switching into Big Desktop mode, does anyone know how to get this to work?
