OK, now I'm just annoyed.

UT2K4 runs fine... AS ROOT!

But I don't want to log in as root just to play a game...

It's not a permission problem with anything UT2K4, because I even tried doing a chmod 777 -R...

So can you still send me the drivers, Micro420? It might be a problem with that...

The missing symbols is a common problem and look up this website for the answer.

I just sent you it at your rogers . com e-mail address. let me know if it works or not since other people would like to know.

That's not what we're talking about. We're talking about teh drivers load fine but UT2004 won't, wiht an error about missing symbols. Other OpenGL stuff works fine, though.

I'd like to get my hands on 3.2.5 as well, as they supposedly work better in UT2k4 than 3.7.6. BTW, I got rid of the error and got UT2k4 to run by swapping to Slackware 9.1 and installing the drivers that way with rpm2tgz and pkgtool. I'd like to try different driver versions to check out speed comparisons, because performance sucks on my system with the current drivers.

Micro420, could you email those drivers to me as well? funk [at] grics [dot] net if you'd be so kind.

I sent the 3.2.5 driver to your grics.net e-mail address.

Let us know if it works or has speed improvements or whatever. This is the current driver I am using and everything works flawlessly.

Well, I installed 3.2.5 and it was pretty good, actually...I get Windows-esque performance out of UT2k4 with them. However, I'm locking up after about 2 matches or so. I don't know if the temperatures reported by my MSI KT6V-LSR are accurate, but if they are, it's a little warm (~58 C) but not hot enough to crash it I wouldn't think. I downloaded 3.2.8 from the article that originally taught me how to get the drivers working under slack 9.1 with a KT600 board, and got the same. Either way, performance is there, now I just need stability.

Like I said, I don't think that's accurate. The same CPU at the same speed setting in the same case on a different motherboard (so all else being equal, this is a different motherboard...upgraded from a rev. 1 GA-7VAXP KT400 motherboard) and under load I was an easy 10 degrees C cooler. The heatsink (a CoolerMaster Aero 7) feels warm to the touch, but not overly hot...about the same as it was on the other board. Also, on this board temps dont' fluctuate at all...it's 58 under load and it's 58 after sitting idle for an hour or so.

edit: That, and it never locked up with the 3.7.6 drivers, and the temps were the same (like a CPU is going to get hotter with different vid card drives, I know)

Possible solution with new ATI drivers?

I kept getting the "Missing Symbols" error when starting UT2004, and after reading this thread, I spent hours looking for the 3.2.5 drivers to no avail.

I think the problem might be related to Mandrake 10.

So I strace'd UT2004 while I started it up, and noticed this:

open("./System/tls/libGL.so.1", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("./System/i686/sse/mmx/libGL.so.1", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("./System/i686/sse/libGL.so.1", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("./System/i686/mmx/libGL.so.1", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("./System/i686/libGL.so.1", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("./System/sse/mmx/libGL.so.1", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("./System/sse/libGL.so.1", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("./System/mmx/libGL.so.1", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("./System/libGL.so.1", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/X11R6/lib/tls/libGL.so.1", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1", O_RDONLY) = 148
read(148, "\177ELF\1\1\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\3\0\3\0\1\0\0\0`\225\0\0004\0\0\0000\30\3\0\0\0\0\0004\0

It was looking all over for the libGL.so.1, and finally found it at: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1

# ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 May 16 12:44 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1 -> libGLwrapper.so.0.2.0*

Interesting, so I checked fglrxinfo:

# fglrxinfo
Loading required GL library /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9000 DDR Generic
OpenGL version string: 1.3 (X4.3.0-3.7.6)

/usr/lib/libGL.so1?!? UT2004 was using the wrong GL library.

cd /usr/X11R6/lib
rm libGL.so.1
ln -s /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 libGL.so.1

UT2004 fired up like a charm right after I did the above.

Not sure if it will have negative side effects or not, but the game works now with ATI's 3.7.6 drivers!

Enjoy.

Try what ipso (post above this one) and see if you get it working. If not, then I can e-mail you the 3.2.5 drivers, but I don't know if they'll make a difference or not.

Thumbs up yes!

Thank you very much, Ipso! I had this problem since I first installed ut2004 (right after it came out) on my ATI box. I too had searched a good while for older ATI drivers online in vain - but your fix made it work instantly! I'm a bit disappointed with the game's performance in Linux (as compared to how it runs in WinXP on the same box) but I figure that has to do with ATI's linux drivers just not being as good as their windows ones. Once again, thanks!

Glad to hear it worked for you. I too am very dissapointed with the Linux performance.

Many people say the older ATI drivers are much faster, but I couldn't get them to work with the 2.6 kernel. If ATI doesn't do something about this before DOOM3 comes out, I'm gonna have to switch back to Nvidia unfortunately.

Yeah, seriously! ATI is a pain in the a$$ with linux! I rarely hear of Nvidia driver problems. It's always ATI problems on this board. I'm fortunate enough to get my ATI card working.

My next purchase will be Nvidia because I hear so many horror stories with ATI in linux. Bye bye ATI.
