Ati Xpress X200 no 3d?


I can't get 3d on my ati x200 card, when i try using fglrx as my driver and startx, the entire screen turns white, then flashes to black, yellow and so on...
Can anyone help me with this?

I had to change the kernel .config
look under # Ftape, the floppy tape device driver

Look at lsmod and see which one of those modules are loaded.
Also what is your hardware?
Did you use the ati installer, from there site?

The only way I got it to work was to use ati's driver;
https://support.ati.com/ics/support/...e&folderID=300
and I think I had to load the RADEON module.
I used there new installer.
