I have installed the ATI drivers based on the how-to on gentoo-wiki. It seems the installation went fine but the openGL screensavers are not working (under kde-3.5.2). My system is gentoo 2006.0/kernel 2.6.16/X11-xorg-6.8.2
After install, the output of fglrxinfo looks good:
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON X300/X550 Series Generic
OpenGL version string: 2.0.5755 (8.24.8)
There are however a few warnings in the X11 log but I don't know what to do with them:
# grep -e EE -e WW Xorg.0.log
(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(WW) The directory "/usr/share/fonts/CID/" does not exist.
(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such file or directory)
(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:1) found
(WW) fglrx(0): Specified desktop setup not supported: 8
(WW) fglrx(0): [drm] using DRM defaults (QS_ID=99000000)
I don't understand why the BusID shows 1:0:1 in the warnings because my xorg.conf only references 1:0:0. Below are some portions of xorg.conf :
Identifier "ATI Graphics Adapter 0"
VendorName "ATI Technologies Inc"
In case this is useful, lspci returns the following for the card:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV370 5B60 [Radeon X300 (PCIE)]
01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV370 [Radeon X300SE]
Oh and in the KDE Info center, if I try to access the openGL section, KInfocenter crashes
What can I do from here to get openGL working properly?
Thanks in advance,
