Hi, I'm looking for a driver for a radeon 9800 pro 128mb, I looked at ati.com but all they have a 9700 version - which causes error when I installed it; gives me a black screen because it was spawning too quickly so I have not GUI. I was wondering if there is something that will allow me to run the card successfully. I have red hat 9. Thanks in advance.
I get ya, I took it as ati cards will only work with redhat 8.0 aha
I'm trying to get the firegl drivers to work with my 9600 pro on slackware and I'm having trouble, I blame it on it being the stupid rpm file. (I did try rpm2tgz etc... but after finishing installing I did "fglrxconfig" and it doesn't start up the config)
I also have the ATi 9800 Pro and found that they have no drive for it yet. Does anyone know about how long ATi has been to push out new drivers for their cards on Linux? I'm stuck with a generic VESA driver and card settings.
Ok I have RH9 and ran the sh Check.sh utility to check and make sure I grabbed the right one. I think so at least. I have the fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-2.9.13.i586.rpm. I have a ATi 9800 Pro videop card and want to get it working better so I tried this. I ran the rpm -i --force since it wouldn't install with out the force. I also did it out of the Xserver since it said to run it from console. When I restarted I got the error from the Xserver so I checked it. Had something to do the PCIsomething and the AGP was found. How did you install this and do I even have the right file?
Ok I might have my problem figured out. If this is it I'm stupid. I ran the sh Check.sh to see whatever it gave me. It spits this out;
Checking which OS you're running...
uname reports 'Linux' version '2.4.20-19.9', architecture 'i686'.
Object format is 'ELF'.
libc version is '6.3'.
XFree86 Version 4.3.0 is installed.
No package available for glibc 2.3. Try r200glibc21.tgz
Binary package name is 'r200glibc21.tgz'
Now this might be where I was stupid. It says no package for glibc 2.3. Since this requires the library for glibc23 aka libc63, does that mean I don't have what I need?
