what about fglrx + 2.6.12 FC4 kernel?


Did anyone get any ATI drivers working for 2.6.12-1.1390_FC4?

I first tried these drivers here, with the 2.6.12 kernel, so i installed rpm --force ati.rpm, patched and it did not work, when i did sh make.sh.
Then i tried the rpm's from livna, and they don't work either. Could it be that i ruined something, because I did rpm --force ati.rpm first?

Drivers from this site were working for me on FC3 with 2.6.11 kernel flawlessly.

EDIT: I resolved the problem. Sory for bothering, but here's the thing I did:
I had to load different rpm and patch it with different patch, all here:

Yea, didn't work for me either. Fedora Core 4 with ATI 9600. Had this all working in Mandrake 10.1, but decided to jump to Fedora and no joy. Just hangs on the patch. I was able to sh make.sh, though. Seemed to build fine. But I still have no direct rendering.

What a pain. Wish I could remember how I got in working in Mandrake. Sigh...

Edit:

OK, after going back and reading the ENTIRE thread, I think I see my problem. Will try again tonight.

Well, still not joy. I installed the fglrx drivers as the HowTo indicate and was able to successfully patch them. At least it returned that it was all successful. The I tried

sh make.sh

and got this

ATI module generator V 2.0
==========================
initializing...
cleaning...
patching 'highmem.h'...
assuming new VMA API since we do have kernel 2.6.x...
doing Makefile based build for kernel 2.6.x and higher
ln: `./libfglrx_ip.a.GCC4': File exists
make: *** [libfglrx_ip.a.GCC4] Error 1
build failed with return value 2

There is a 21 byte file in the /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6X directory called libfglrx_ip.a.GCC4 that appears to be a symlink, but I tried clicking on it an it disappeared. Then I tried to run sh make.sh again and got:

[root@localhost build_mod]# sh make.sh
ATI module generator V 2.0
==========================
initializing...
Error: could not resolve matching ip-library.
[root@localhost build_mod]#


So, any ideas. I did this in a terminal and su to root. Should I try it again logging on as root?

Thanks (going crazy in Washington)

Edit:

Probably should post the complete make file log output:

In your file log output I see, you have 2.6.12 kernel. This driver works only for 2.6.11 (at list id didn't work for me at 6.12).
did you try post #35, for FC4?

alesz,

Thanks, I'll try that. What fun.

stunter

Edit:
That did it. Used the directions here:

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/...ad.php?t=63910

Did the trick. Unfortunately, I'll have to be sure to update these drivers whenever I update the kernel, but seems a small price to pay for everything working.

Hey!!!!! 2200 fps can't be all bad.

Actually, compared to nvidia's 5900 card at 16000fps it is pretty bad.

hi all,

i did the following to install my ATI Radeon XPress 200G Graphics Card Drivers.

1. i downloaded the ati driver.rpm from www.ati.com
2. installed it with rpm -Uvh --force [filename.rpm] . it installed successfully.
3. Then, i copied the 2 patches from on thread and saved them in /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod directory.
and ran it . it executed successfully.
4.Then i run the command sh make.sh & sh make_install.sh



Here i got problem. when i run first command ,

it gives the out put
'
ATI module generator V 2.0
==========================
initializing...
kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include not found or incomplete
file: /usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h
'

and the output of ' sh make_install.sh ' command is as following...

'
Tailored kernel module for fglrx not present in your system.
You must go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod subdir
and execute './make.sh' to build a fully customed kernel module.
Afterwards go to /lib/modules/fglrx and run './make_install.sh'
in order to install the module into your kernel's module repository.
(see readme.txt for more details.)

As of now you can still run your XServer in 2D, but hardware acclerated
OpenGL will not work and 2D graphics will lack performance.

failed.
'
Any idea.

Dear " Stunter "

i get the same error every time.

which ATI Card you are trying to install.

i strongly believe that we are beating the bush. nothing can happen.

any way, no success in my case, some time , one error , next time , other.

i am really fed up.

please let me know if any progress.


-regards.

antidelldude,

2200 fps on an ATI 9550 isn't bad at all.

Be.Gurmeet.Be,

try: yum install ati-fglrx. Be sure you have livna repo installed.

Hello

I've managed to install livna.repo and update through yum install ati-fglrx. After installing I've had to install the kernel module. That was easy with yum. But afterwards when I ran fglrxinfo I've got this message:

Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
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)

Does anyone know what this means and why isn't there any ati comment?? When I rebooted the system I saw that the Kernel? was "checking" for ati-fglrx and not starting the driver. Could that be the problem?

Thanks

Karmas

Did you run the fglrx config program?
