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!
