Problem after updating ATI RADEON 9800 PRO (Freezes!)

kernel: 2.6.15-1.1831_FC4


SYSTEM: FEDORA CORE 4

I just updated my ATI OpenGL driver for ATI Radeon 9800 Pro and the installation was good. But when I do the following:

Run "fglrxinfo". You should see something like:

display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON XPRESS 200M Series SW TCL Generic
OpenGL version string: 1.3.5519 (X4.3.0-8.20.Cool

this shows up like it should but then my computer freezes!

When I do:

Run "glxgears" and "fgl_glxgears" to see 3d acceleration in action.

my computer also freezes. The same when I select ATI Control from the "Application Menu".

My computer is a pentium III, 700 MHz. Motherboard ASUS P3B-F. I have no problems when working with MS Windows. Everything was o.k. before the update but I would like for it to work so I could use the ATI controls and setting in linux as well. I just need some info so I could fix the problem. Thanks in advance!

"My computer is a pentium III, 700 MHz." And you have a 9800Pro!? Wow... I have no idea what to even ask about that. But seriously I do have one question about that: WHY? A P3 can't handle a quater of the power of that monster video card, why would you have such a behemoth in your old tower?

Now when you say updating... you allude to updating the video driver from the open source to the ATI officials(maybe). Which version of drivers... where did you get them, and shell script installer or RPM? Let's start there.

Problem after updating ATI RADEON 9800 PRO (Freezes!)

This is the driver I used: ati-driver-installer-8.20.8-i386.run


When I used the latest driver: ati-driver-installer-8.22.5-i386.run
and when I run the command "fglrxinfo" from the terminal I get this:

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON ...
OpenGL version string: ...
