ohk, iono what happened with the ati driver but...


i was using kernel 2.6.8 (custom compile) and then my 3d acceleration had started breaking. so i figured i would update the ati package o was using 4.somthing. At the same time i upgraded my kernel to 2.6.11 and that is when all hell broke loose. now that i have straightened out my kernel (i was using my .config from 2.6.8 and that effed everything up) i keep getting these problems when i try to load fglrx with mod probe
Code:
Farscape:/usr/src# modprobe fglrx
FATAL: Error inserting fglrx (/lib/modules/2.6.11/fglrx.ko): Unknownsymbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
when i check dmesg i get this (this has been cut down for relevance)
Code:
fglrx: Unknown symbol remap_page_range
fglrx: Unknown symbol pci_find_class
i have googled and forvm hopped and i have run into no solution except for those FC4-RC guys but it still doesn't help me much. please help me out. i even chanded all of those pci_find_class to pci_get_class and i am still getting this error and i have found nothing to help with the remape_page_range.

I have used the xoomer site before and that is how i got fglrx to compile on debian before but now it is failing me. (i was a redhat junky untill they stopped suppirting rh7.3-9 so i went back to my beloved debian but this is the only prob that i have ever had with her). if any can help please drop a line cause i am sure that i am not the only one.

since my post is getting no love...

what is the best supported 3d graphics card to use in linux (i know it is an nvidia card but which one)?
Also, what is the best cable/sat tv tuner to use in linux (is it aver media, matrox...)? I was looking at the pchdtv card but it is software based encoding and i perfer hardware based.
i guess i am officially giving up on ati and linux having a non-abusive, non-depressing relationship...marraige counseling can never bring these two together.

I have an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 in my laptop with Debian Sarge and everything works out of the box. Now I upgraded to Edge and still no problems.
Also I have an older ATI Card in my Desktop with Debian Sarge and everything works out of the box.
Never had any problems with my graphic cards ( only soundproblems, always ! )

You said you first used a self compiled 2.6.8 kernel and then the 3d acceleration broke.
Well, what did you do to make it break ? It did not break all by itself, did it ?
Then you said you updated the "ATI Package" you were using for "something".
For what ?
And then you say at the same time you upgraded to kernel 2.6.11.
At the same time ? I mean, now thats the point of confusion, because from this point I can't follow you anymore.
When I read on, I think you compiled Kernel 2.6.11 with the config of your self compiled Kernel 2.6.8, and hell broke loose, is that right ?
I think, without further information on what you did exactly, nobody can help you.
It seems to me that you messed something with compiling the kernel, I don't know.
But in this case, I would not blame ATI for this...

i was refering to 3d graphics and hardware acceleration (mesa and drm cannot really perform for todays games line ut aa ...etc)

no... let me clarify. I had built a custom kernel because i wanted to use the ati "prorietary" driver. Using the cupplied by debian prepackaged kernels had drm built into them. so i used debian kernel source for 2.6.8 and built the kernel, then compiled and installed ati's driver by following the info from this page http://xoomer.virgilio.it/flavio.sta...installer.html
After maybe half a year, i noticed that some things didn't work if they whent fulscreen (like tuxracer, xine). these progs had worked before but all of a sudden stopped. i use apt-get andi was thinking that it broke some stuff as i combined testing and ustable (with unstable as highest priority). so i tried to compile my own kernel again. this time 2.6.10 but it would work as i kept geting kmod erros and what not so i then proceeded to 2.6.11 (at first i used the pre compiled 2.6.11-k7 untill i compiled my own). now i am stuck with tis current prob, as i have tried to install the ati drivers in every googled way. i think that the patches for the ati driver don't work with deabian as they seem to solve nothing
