Need help installing ATI display drivers


I followed this tutorial:

linuxquestions.org/questions/answers.php?action=viewarticle&artid=598

word for word twice. The drivers appear to install correctly and after running fglrxconfig and rebooting everything displays correctly, but when I get to the part where I run the command:

Code:
fglrxinfo
I keep getting the Mesa junk and not ATI. Obviously this means I have no hardware acceleration from my ATI card even after installing the drivers. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong here?

Which Distro

Dear GameQber

Could you let us know which distro you are using?

For Debian (Ubuntu) see here:
http://xoomer.virgilio.it/flavio.sta...installer.html

Ubuntu already provides the driver in the restricted-modules. (Even though there are problems in Breezy (at least in my installations)

Looks like a kernel AGP problem. Can you post dmesg output?

I think I may have spotted what might be the problem:

can you post the output of cat /proc/mtrr?

Sure thing:

Code:

reg01: base=0x40000000 (1024MB), size=983552MB: write-back, count=1

If you did this on a fresh install but updated the kernel during the auto-update portion of the install and didn't reboot before installing then reinstall the OS again, and make sure you reboot before installing anything.

I think I've got this figured out. I did a quick search on Google and I found this thread: http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?t=33831753

It looks like your BIOS is giving Linux bad information, and it messes stuff up. I've never personally experienced this though. People say this fixes their problems, so I'd give it a go.

Good Luck

It looks like this could be it, but because I'm a noob, I don't know how to do this:

Quote:
Create a symlink: /etc/rcS.d/S02fix_mtrr
The symlink must point to: ../init.d/fix_mtrr
I'm sure it's something simple...

Assuming that the file /etc/init.d/fix_mtrr exists, you can create a symlink to it in /etc/init.d/rcS.d by opening up a terminal, assuming root privliges and typing these commands:

Code:
cd /etc/init.d/rcS.d
ln -sf ../init.d/fix_mtrr S02fix_mtrr

asldkfha;lksdfjlaksdf....no luck. I'd like to mention that the rcS.d directory did not exist in the /etc/ directory nor the /etc/init.d directory. So, I just created the directory in each and tried that symlink command for both, but nothing seems to happen. I run the command:
Code:
cat /proc/mtrr
and I just get the following

Code:
reg00: base=0x00000000 (   0MB), size=984064MB: write-back, count=1
reg01: base=0x40000000 (1024MB), size=983552MB: write-back, count=1
which is what I got before I did all what was said in that thread you linked, instead of getting:

Code:
reg00: base=0x00000000 ( 0MB), size=1024MB: write-back, count=1
reg01: base=0xd0000000 (3328MB), size= 128MB: write-combining, count=1
reg02: base=0xf0000000 (3840MB), size= 128MB: write-combining, count=1
(this is what I SHOULD get after symlinking and rebooting)

I'm guessing I'm not doing that whole symlink correctly. That, or I'm missing a directory that the HOWTO you linked assumes that I have.


I apologize for my lack of knowledge of Linux and a need for a step-by-step walkthrough of doing things. I've just started using it going into my second year of college and trying to figure things out. Trust me...it's very frustrating when things doin't work. X_X

UPDATE: I would like to note that although there is no rcS.d dir. in the /etc/ dir., there are rc0.d, rc1.d, rc2.d, rc3.d, rc4.d, rc5.d, rc6.d, and rc.d directories. Again, I had to make the rcS.d directory myself, which didn't seem right...

maybe it was just a typo in the post in that thread. I'm not too familiar with the way Fedora does its init scripts, so bear with me here. I'm pretty sure sure that instead of rcS.d, perhaps it should go into /etc/rc.5

Well, I put the link in /etc/rc5.d and that crashed the start up of linux:

Code:
Starting fix_mtrr...                                 [FAILED]
so into Linux Rescue I went to remove the link. I'm willing to bet it's one of those rc directories. I posted on that thread in hopes of someone being able to tell me which directory it goes in. I don't think it would be worth it trying all 7 directories knowing that probably only one of them is the correct one and I'd have to go into Linux Rescue every time I try the wrong one.
