It's been a while since I've used linux. I used Debian last - and that was about a year ago. Now, I'm using FC5, now - and remember almost nothing.
Now, I was hoping that I could simply install the ATI drivers and follow the same instructions that I did before to get it working - WRONG!! - ATI went and changed the flippin' things around on me - now once again, I cannot get it working. Perhaps we can get a set answer to this issue for Xorg 7.0 users then sticky it?
This time, I get an error different from last time (last time, it just wouldn't run tuxracer, or would run 3d programs crappily) - the error I get is the same as many have been getting:
aticonfig: error while loading shared libraries: libfglrx_pp.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
when I run "aticonfig"
I googled the problem, and found a post here where they said try creating soft links - this was to no effect.
I tried another post on that one to "trick" the installer into thinking that this was an Xorg 6.9, instead of 7.0 - and my 2D acceleration no longer worked (bye bye to linux GUI).
I restored the xorg.conf file - and now I'm back to square one:
-----------> GUI is working with no 3D acceleration.
Here is the output of my "fglrxinfo"
Oh... nevermind that - now that's not working, either - I actually got it to say the "mesa" driver information, but now I just get this error, and I don't know what's wrong!:
fglrxinfo: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libGL.so.1: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied
According to yumex, mesa-libGL is installed, along with libGLU and I just installed libGLw.
I got this error once before - before I installed mesa-libGL - and fglrxinfo gave me the mesa driver output. Now, however - it's not working at all and I don't know how to fix it.
Can anyone help me, please?
