Ati Radeon 7000 Driver Installation Problem.
 
damn ATI Radeon 7000 ... i waz going 2 install the latest driver but couldn't install that coz of following errors:

[root@localhost /]# rpm -ivh fglrx_6_8_0-8.12.10-1.i386.rpm

I have already posted about ATI DRIVERS before but couldn't solve the problem( OpenGL Support !!! ). i am using FC3 now.Plz help me.

N.B. my kernel version 2.6.9-1.667

Best regards.

There is no ati 7000 driver for linux. I have the same card and it works ok with the stock xorg wich comes with Fedora Core 3

hi Sharke,
thanx ... :) ... but why my FC3 is't supported by OpenGL??? ... have u edited xorg.conf file?

my xorg.conf file contains following datas:

plz compare these with your xorg.conf file.

Your xorgconf looks ok please run glxgears in console and also glxinfo this will give you your frame rates and also 3d dri & opengl.

hi Sharke,
as u said, i have tried with "glxgears" & "glxinfo" commands ... 1st time when i tried with "glxgears" my PC was hanged ... :( ... but it gave me this "1426 frames in 5.0 seconds = 285.200 FPS" before hanged ... but next time it work ... anywayz this is the outputs of those commans:

As you can see you do have dri & opengl working. your frame rates are similar to mine with the same graphics card.

thanx Sharke but my OpenGL screen savers don't work :scratch: ... so it seemed to me that my FC3 hadn't OpenGL Support!!! ... :rolleyes: may be my Screen Saver's problem :( ... anywayz thanx again :) ... Take Care.

Best Regards.
