because sources (also if installed) do not reflect the settings of the current kernel. Which version of the ATi driver did you use??For comparison here is a copy of my xorg.conf file;Code: Select all# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display
Identifier For example, if the former command outputs "8.55" and the latter "126.96.36.199", you need to name the patch /etc/ati/patch/patch-8.56-188.8.131.52. At last, i added a new section to the /etc/X11/xorg.confCode: Select allSection "DRI"
And...........yes, as you thought it......it doesn't help. have a peek here
Unable to make GCC_VER_MAJ=4 KVER=2.6.22-gentoo-r5 KDIR=/usr/src/linux kmod_build. With fglrx drivers prior to 8.42.3 will need to disable composite to enable 3D DRI acceleration. 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? I cannot seem to get ati-drivers to install. http://www.filewatcher.com/m/ati-driver-installer-8.39.4-x86.x86_64.run.40085391-0.html
Basic lesson: Not all ati-driver packages work with all kernels. FedoraForum.org is privately owned and is not directly sponsored by the Fedora Project or Red Hat, Inc. The fglrx-x package contains ATI's OpenGL libraries, and these libraries are located in the same directory of the Mesa libraries, so when you install the fglrx-x package Mesa OpenGL libraries are
Log in as root and type: yum -y install kmod-nvidia glx-utils The above command will install the video driver for newer Nvidia cards. And discover the GLOO Cannon was nearly removed from the game, and Mimics were a lucky mistake. This can happen: because the kernel source were not installed. It's the same version like you have: 8.39. 4I used the "ati-driver-installer-8.39.4-x86.x86_64.run" and generated a rpm package with it, instead install it directly.
EndSection Section "Device" ... With recent x11-drm-20060608 driver (gentoo) and thinkpad t42 (ati 9600) the speed is confirmed as 1900fps and stable. its pretty games seem to run horribly now though, is there a solution for this? After doing that you need to make sure that the ati-drivers package you have chosen matches up with the kernel you are attempting to build/install.
In this case should be enough to install the source package which can be found in Slackware k/ directory. http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=155503&highlight=mobility+radeon&page=27 Since that ATI drivers don't have this type of license, they aren't compiled. the transparent AMD logo in the lower right corner which says: "AMD Unsupported hardware" is a known issue. When you're back, open up Konsole and type: glxinfo | grep direct If the output of the above command is: direct rendering: Yes the ATI driver installation was successfully completed and

There is no output message, so the module isn't loaded.
