Does anyone have a hint at when ATI will be releasing FireGL drivers for XFree86 4.3.0? I just installed RedHat 9 (yes, I am a newb) and don't want to try to install 4.2.0 just to get 3D acceleration... Otherwise, does anyone know of any alternatives?
So, it hit me. As I was looking at /proc/pci & then messing with the BusID field, I noticed that the XF86 error changed but not how I expected it too. It would display that it was missing the device section for ID 1:0:1 when I had 1:0:0 typed in and vice versa. So, then it hit me that their is not device section for the secondary display that I found in /proc/pci (note, if you install this card in windows their is a primary and secondary driver). So, I tried whipping up something quick using the same driver but it didn't take. So does anyone know how I create the device section for the secondary driver?
Nope, I wish it did... I am having a problem with my agpgart driver detecting the ram in video card... It just fails, so I'm unsure if I should just upgrade my kernel or what... Maybe I am using the wrong gart driver or something?
hey makai, i feel your pain, i have almost the exact same system. I even started the thread linked in the first response. Argh, this has been an endless search.
Schneider-digital drivers are only good for certain cards...none on the 9x00 series unfortunately. I believe i've tried every other solution, even using a .o from a guy here (i trusted him =P ). it;s a waiting game for you and me both, unless some genius comes up with own source for a driver
Martinman, I don't understand... have you tried the ATI driver for XFree86 4.2? Or the modified ATI driver from that other website for 4.3? What problems did you run into? I know that those drivers support the KT400 chipset... what problems did you get getting it to run?
yeah, the 4.2 drivers i've tried and they dont run (rpms) and the modified drivers (ati.2) don't work with my card/chipset, the schneider-digital drivers only support a select few cards, none even in the radeon family !
you're pretty much my last hope, besides waiting for ati
