No screens found
Seems like xorg 7.5 don't work with fglrx or something else... How to fix it?

Did you also update fglrx?
Check to see if your card is supported by free software drivers.

I am getting a lot of support requests concerning fglrx due to ATI dropping support for a lot of cards. The upside is that these cards are supported in the free software radeon or radeonHD drivers.

my card is hd2600XT... How can I try open source ati drivers? I never did it before...

Seems like xorg 7.5 is currently not supported by fglrx((

Yes, fglrx does not support X server 1.7.* yet. Hopefully in the next month or two.

You can use the open source drivers. They should have worked out-of-the-box on a Slackware64 -current installation, but are probably now broken that you installed fglrx. Remove fglrx, reinstall mesa and the xserver packages, and then switch to the 'radeon' or 'radeonhd' driver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

I removed fglrx and reinstalled all the XORG and MESA packages... and now /etx/X11/xorg.conf is ignored...

xorg.conf is empty (size = 0b), but KDE still runs... still no hardware 3D...

OMG, how can I make open source drivers work

Show us your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file.

Oh, I'm sorry) (named xorg.0.log.txt because I can attach txt files only)

adamk75 03-05-2010 04:10 AM

This is the problem:

Code:

[drm] failed to load kernel module "radeon"
What is the output of 'lsmod | grep drm' and 'dmesg | grep drm'?

Dinobot 03-05-2010 04:29 AM

both are nothing...

adamk75 03-05-2010 04:58 AM

How about the output of 'modprobe radeon' (either as root or with sudo).

COmmon issue with -current:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...pgrade-792578/

Basically, rebuild the kernel with CONFIG_PREEMPT_NONE=y
