Radeon 9700 pro and L-M 9.1
For starters for people with this card. Get Red Hat 8.0. The OpenGL stuff installs no problem either the 4.2 or the 4.3 XFree Ati drivers (not sure which just run the sh Check.sh thing and see what you need). I got Tux and Chromium running at good frames if you must have OpenGL.
Being the knob I am I really want to get Mandrake 9.1 to work with the ATI. So I have tried the Schieder driver for 4.3 and installed Glib 2.2 I think. I've tried (the official 4.2 on as well) both I believe and forced the drivers on. Okay Linux tells me I can't run 3d hardware. Why is that? When I STARTX after the flglxconfig program I get like WDWindows or something (three windows with an analog clock?) Is there a program that I can force KDE or Gnome to run. I think I specified KDE to run on boot but it goes to that silly minimalistic windows thing.
I'd appreciate some ideas with exact path names please. Linux isn't that smart and neither am I :-)
Thank you all...
