How to ATI Radeon® Xpress 200M IGP


I just got my hands on a Compaq V2312US AMD Turion 64 ML-28 (this baby is fast!). It comes with the ATI Radeon® Xpress 200M IGP 128mb graphics adapter. I have always complained about the poor support from ati for linux drivers. The story has changed now because ATI support has made it really simple to install linux drivers.

The installation has been simplified and no longer need to be in telinit 3 because all you need is the terminal. I am using the lastest ati linux drivers 8.19.10 [http://support.ati.com/ics/support/D...deptID=894]ATI Radeon 8500 Series or higher which supports Xpress 200M IGP[/url](right click on link and SAVE AS for download to start). My laptop is 64 bit BUT I decided to install fedora 32bit version to make my life easier

Installation should be same for laptops and desktops.
1. Download drivers from link provided.
2. Open terminal and become root
3. Run:
Code:
sh ati-driver-installer-8.19.10-i386.run
4. Example of installer lauching in terminal:
Quote:
[root@laptopFC4 imdeemvp]# sh ati-driver-installer-8.16.20-i386.run
Creating directory fglrx-install
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

Detected configuration:

X Server: Xorg 6.8.2
Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install
5. Run:
Code:
fglrxconfig
6. Press "enter" and JUST FOLLOW THE PROMPTS WHICH WILL INDACATE YOU WHAT TO DO and you are done. You dont have to edit the xorg.conf ati will do it for you

7. My latest FPS:

Hello

Yo man....i guess from 2005 to 2007 ATI has updated the drivers. Do you happen to know from where can I download the newest ATI drivers for an Ati Radeon XPress 200M ?

I have the ATI Radeon XPress 200M, and I got it working today by simply installing kmod-fglrx.

Hope this helps.
