I have an ATI Radeon 9200. When I got it I download it the driver from ATI and installed it with no problem. I didn't have 3d acceleration working but everything else was fine. I tried playing quake and it was ok.
Some days later, I don't know what happened but X would start. It was hanging displaying only a black screen. The whole system halted and I had to press reset to get it back.
I tried reconfiguring X but if I used that driver from ATI, X would hang again.
I decided to find another way to make it work and I found in this forum this howto
I followed it and X now starts and looks ok. Still no 3d acceleration though.
Now for the resolution part:
I tried setting it from redhat-config-xfree86 but it seems to ignore me and writes XF86Config file with modes 800x600 and 640x480 only.
I edited XF86Config file and added 1024x768 but when I start X, it startx in 800x600. I tried ctr+alt++ to cycle trough resolutions but it only cycles through 800x600 and 640x480
If I delete 800x600 and 640x480 and leave only 1024x768 X doesn't start and displays this error message: no screens found
What else can I do?
glxgears says only 70FPS. I was expecting more! What do you think?
