Hi there,

is it possible ?
There is no way getting 3D support for my
card ?
I can't believe it, this card isn't as new.

HELLLLLLLP

greetings,
Holger

Glibc 2.3 is glibc 2.2 compatible. Just install anyway. I'm using that
driver right now (RH9, not Mandrake, but glibc 2.3 based). I had to use
external AGP driver, though (modprobe agpgart).

Hi,

I did a force install and changed XFConfig
from radeon to fglx (don't remember the right name)

X didn't start.

So I went back to radeon.

modprobe agpgart returns nothing on the console.
Is this right ?

I'm sorry that I'm such a newbie ;)

What's wrong ?

Could you tell me the right steps ?

Thanks in advance

Holger

"fglrx" is the driver you've just installed, so that is the driver you'll
have to use.

I used fglrxconfig (was installed together with fglrx driver) to create a
new XF86Config file. It sets quite a few driver options you might need. My
Device section looks like this (just as messy as the script created it..):

------------------- snipped from XF86Config-4 ------------------ Section
Section "Device"

# === disable PnP Monitor  ===
    #Option                              "NoDDC"
# === disable/enable XAA/DRI ===
# === Screen Management ===
# Note: When OpenGL Overlay is enabled, Video Overlay #       will be
disabled automatically
        Identifier  "ATI Graphics Adapter"
        Driver      "fglrx"
        Option      "no_accel" "no"
        Option      "no_dri" "no"
# === FireGL DDX driver module specific settings ===
        Option      "DesktopSetup" "0x00000000" Option    
        "MonitorLayout" "AUTO, AUTO" Option      "IgnoreEDID" "off"
        Option      "HSync2" "unspecified"
        Option      "VRefresh2" "unspecified" Option      "ScreenOverlap"
        "0"
        Option      "GammaCorrectionI" "0x00000000" Option    
        "GammaCorrectionII" "0x00000000"
# === OpenGL specific profiles/settings ===
        Option      "Capabilities" "0x00000000"
# === Video Overlay for the Xv extension ===
        Option      "VideoOverlay" "on"
# === OpenGL Overlay ===
        Option      "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
# === Misc Options ===
        Option      "UseFastTLS" "0"
        Option      "BlockSignalsOnLock" "on" Option    
        "UseInternalAGPGART" "no" Option      "ForceGenericCPU" "no"
#    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"    # no device found at config time

EndSection
----------------------------------------------------------------

Most definitely gives accelerated OpenGL on my system...

Buahhhhhh, sniff,

Modprobe: Can't locate module fglrx

But it's under /usr/lib/fglrx

The driver is installed.

Call me a don'tknownothing ;)

Any ideas ?

Only problem, modprobe is looking in /lib/modules/<your kernel>/
and in /usr/lib/fglrx. Thats an issue.

Ok.

I can please only one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow

I am BOFH. Resistance is futile. Your network will be assimilated.

 
 
 

1. ATI Radeon 7500 on Mandrake 9.1 -- DRI does not load

Can I get DRI to work with this combination?

MSI KM2M Combo-L MS-6738 Motherboard
ATI Radeon 7500 64 MB (powered by--so a third party reseller, I guess)
AMD XP 24000
512 DDR ram

During the install Mandrake automatically loaded the radeon driver and
when I check in the control center it says it is using it with 3d
acceleration, but this is not the case. XF86Config-4 says that dri is
going to load:

Section "Module"
    Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
    Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
    Load "extmod"
    Load "type1"
    Load "freetype"
    Load "glx" # 3D layer
    Load "dri" # direct rendering
EndSection

Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier "device1"
    VendorName "ATI"
    BoardName "ATI Radeon"
    Driver "radeon"
    Option "DPMS"
EndSection

But lsmod does not list dri as a module, just radeon:

radeon                107428   0

Also, there is no mention of AGPGART loading in XF86Config-4.
Shouldn't that be loaded as well? I tried to modprobe radeon_dri.so
from /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/radeon_dri.so but the result is:
modprobe: Can't locate module radeon_dri.so
Even though the file is there.

Tried the same for agpgart.o in
/lib/modules/2.4.21-0.13mdk/kernel/drivers/char/agp. The agpgart.o
file is there but it is gunzipped (agpgart.o.gz) which I don't get at
all.

I have lurked on a couple newsgroups/websites for info and many people
say that this card works out of the box with Mandrake 9.1, and it
does, but with no 3D acceleration. I tried a 3d game (Enemy Territory
download) and it is using software 3D acceleration and is not
playable. The ATI site has drivers for many of their cards, but not
this one. Sorry for the long post. Any help is greatly appreciated.
