Problems with ATI Radeon 9850 and fglrx drivers


Hi all,

I'm having trouble getting fglrx working with my graphics card. The driver appears to be installed OK

Code:
[nathan@ebisu ~] lsmod | grep -i fgl
fglrx                2350824  26
...but it doesn't seem to actually work

Code:
[nathan@ebisu ~] glxgears
Segmentation fault
[nathan@ebisu ~] glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
Segmentation fault
===First, the vital stats

Sorry if I've missed anything.

=== Comments

I did some Googling, of course, and found a lot of stuff about mtrr mapping problems, but none of them described my symptoms. It looks from /proc/mtrr as though the mtrr is being mapped properly (this is a 512MB card), but it's just not working for whatever reason.

Help greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Nathan

Well, first, you are using a radeon HD 4850, not a 9850 :-)

You should also include your full /var/log/Xorg.0.log file.
