Debian sid ATi driver problem, no module love?


A few things: Running Debian sid, GCC 3.3.6, 2.6.12.3 custom 32 bit k8 kernel

Ok, so I downloaded the official ATi driver package from the website and ran it. Went through the interface and installed stuff automatically. The I ran fglrxconfig and set all the stuff. Then I reboot, but I notice that GL programs are still slow. I check the logs, and sure enough directrendering is disabled. fglrxinfo shows this for the renderer:

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 6.2.1)

So, after searching around, I find about a dozen "guides" to installing the drivers peroperly. I tried this one:

http://xoomer.virgilio.it/flavio.sta...installer.html

However, I failed pretty much every step of the way. For example, here's the error output I got from each of these steps:

I'm completely at a loss as to what needs to be done. It seems I've tried everything I can think of and everything I've read over an entire night and into the next day, but it still won't give me 3d rendering! Can anyone help me here?

I'm using a Radeon on this desktop. My fglrxinfo shows following info:

display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9600 Generic
OpenGL version string: 1.3 (X4.3.0-3.9.0)

I think your problem is wrong GL libraries. I installed Fglrx maybe a year ago, and can't remember the exact procedure. I'd check all possible manuals and try to find how to make Radeon to use correct OpenGL version.

The first error in 3a. is the one holding you back. The others depend on it getting set up correctly. I'm not exactly sure what went wrong there. Have you attempted it from the beginning? Making, sure you did it to the letter?

I encountered #3a tonight as I followed that guide to set up ATI drivers for the first time, and resolved it by fetching packages libxxf86dga-dev, libxxf86misc-dev, and libxxf86vm1-dev.
