Has anyone got kmod-fglrx (ati 9250 ) to work with Fedora 5 and I have the most recent Kernel which is I belive 2. 16.11 FC5 or something like that?

I was able to do a " yum remove kmod-fglrx" to get back where I was before installing it..

Maybe this kernel is to new for the Ati Driver?

Thanks..
Mitch.

I've been using NVidia proprietory drivers directly downloaded from nvidia.com on SuSE, Slackware, Mandriva and gentoo for the last 1.5 years and never ever had any problem.

Maybe, we shouldn't blame the proprietory drivers alone !

I'm using a ATI 9250 AGP 128 meg video card with my Nforce 3/250.
I don't have any experience with 3d and linux on ATI cards.
Now I've had success with my Nvidia cards in linux.

As a matter of fact, I did have Slackware on my P3 550 Pentium with a TNT2 Pro 16 meg card on it and I did get nvidia installed on that.

Just trying to see if I can get the ATI 3D installed on this Fedora 5.
I just think my Kernel is to new for it at this time.


Thanks...

Mitch

Oh yeah - it is also to do with how fedora uses and updates glx. The notice does say that the problem comes when you uninstall the nvidia drivers. The fix would be simple with access to the code - the workaround is also simple and supplied.

The ati drivers for the distro kernels should come in livna surely? Anyway - if you run into anything you need help with, just start a thead in the hardware forum. Someone will get to it.

Don't we still have ATI drivers support for 64bit Fedora 5 ?.. Or may be I can try ati.com ones, rather than livna. Thanks in advance.

Actually I wrote this, because of bug report on livna's main page, later I found answer in fedoraforums.org web site claiming that it should work. I tried two weeks ago, and had not any results, may be now I'll be more lucky. Thanks by the way

I did get my 3d working, though it does not work very good.
I'm at work so I don't have the link. Just go to FedoraForum and you'll find your answer, or just search my posts.

I used the proprietory driver from nvidia.com too and never ever had problems until decide to play games via Wine.
I had a error message for incorrect libGL library and couldn't play any games.
I prefer rpms from livna. Fast and easy instalation.

FC5 Nvidia Install Solved

Hello all

Searching through the fc5 threads for a (wireless) ethernet bug and came acroos this.
The solution was posted previously on a another thread so here it is again.

To install nvidia (or ati i imagine) should be done as follows:

The following link contains the livna rpms...
http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/5/i386/
... so in my case "yum update kernel" upgraded to the 2.6.17 kernel and then use the name given in the above link...
"yum install kmod-nvidia-1.0.8774-1.2.6.17_1.2174_FC5".
Sorted!

Hth : )

I worked on FC5 x86_64 and till the 2.6.18 kernel my ATI graphics wouldn't work so after the 2.6.18 kernel x86_64 is supported by the fglrx driver

nVidia x11 drv

this is ported to fc5,6, and the test3 of fc7, and you can use http://freshrpms.net rpm for the driver x86/x64 both supported, and they work. i'm heating the bedroom with a 512mb nvidia card, and it works just fine with doom3, americasarmy, quake3, urban terror4, scorched3d and good old armagetron!

you need to ctrl-alt-backspace, then ctrl-alt-F6 to the console, then do # rm -f /tmp/.X0-lock

then # vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf and make sure you have a setup like this (enter your own Monitor/modes values):

edit: a note, the rm -f is to do a straight restart of X # startx from console for the gifted and impatient....

if dri or glx values appear, delete them. the files Section will take care of necessary modules. reboot; dkms {dynamic kernel module support,this is a supported dependency CentOS5/fc6 on. load it manually from http://rpmfind.net manually for earlier CentOS/fc} will auto install the necessary module on reload, and you should have a new problem: cooling that really hot GPU card!!!

luck! -O.

During installation, the card is supported by the nv driver though usually works well with the standard vesa. At least for install.

However, if you do not tell us your distro (fedora something?) or what it is about the "gfx" that doesn't work?

Note: if fedora, then anaconda's text-based installation will do for you. Then you can use nano and make sure /etc/xorg.conf is using the nv driver... bingo: gui land After that you can think about the above instructions.
