ATI and Ubuntu will it ever work?


Hello,

I have an ATI radeon, specifically a 9200 SE.
Hasent worked with ubuntu (dapper i386 6.06 LTS) since I got it.
And now my friends are mocking linux because of it, can anyone help me (and linux) to get some respect?

todd@todd-desktop:~$ fglrxinfo
[fglrx] API ERROR: could not register entrypoint for SelectTextureSGIS
[fglrx] API ERROR: could not register entrypoint for SelectTextureTransformSGIS
etc...

Lightbulb Ok, so it wasnt that hard...

All right, appears to be a library problem heres the link with a good description of the solution that worked for me...
Looks like the new drivers don't work with the r200 cards (this doesnt mean much to me as a newbie)
but you can download this file:
Actaully, you need to 'save link as' and put it on your desktop:

http://www.ground-impact.com/libGL.so.1.2

and then move it like this:

sudo mv /home/username/Desktop/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib/
