Arrow RedHat 9 + Radeon 9600 Pro?


Hi!
I know most ppl have troubles with this but I didnt find a way to fix it.
I'm running Linux RedHat 9 and I switched over from Nvidia geforce 2 mx400 to ATi Radeon 9600 Pro.

Here's my specs:
Mobo: ASUS A7V333
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2400+
RAM: 512MB (pc2700)
VIDEO: Sapphire ATi Radeon 9600 Pro

OS: Linux RedHat 9
Kernel: 2.4.20-18.9 Offical
XFree86: 4.3.0
Glibc: 2.3

I went to http://www.schneider-digital.de/html/download_ati.html
And I downloaded FireGL LINUX4.3.0

>rpm -i --force fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-2.9.13.i586.rpm

No errors so far.
i ran fglrxconfig and awnsered all the questions.

When I was done I rebooted my computer and X refused to start.
It flickers a few times and then stays black:


Here's the XFree86.0.log:
http://users.atari-source.com/~gbadouri/XFree86.0.log

Here's my XF86Config-4:
http://users.atari-source.com/~gbadouri/XF86Config-4

And here is the info of "lspci":
http://users.atari-source.com/~gbadouri/pci.txt


I tried using PCIBUS 1:0:1 instead of 1:0:0 but that wont work either, my screen doesnt even flicker and I'll get a "no screens found" error so 1:0:0 must be the right one.

I don't think it has anything to do with agpgart (whatever that is).
Because i didnt got an agp error.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

Well?
Plz someone have a look at my XFree86.0.log and tell me whats the problem.
There are a few ppl who got it working with XFree86 4.3.0 and glibc 2.3.1.

I used to have a nVidia GeForce 2 MX400.
The driver is still installed because I thought FireGL would overwrite it.
Is there anyway to uninstall the nvidia driver and force the FireGL driver to be loaded?

I got no experience with R-H nor nV but here's what I think ...or would try.
I dunno if the leftover nv driver files should interfere [...think not] but I know the kernel won't load a second drm module.

Before starting X, do a lsmod to see if you already have a nv module loaded.
If you do, remove it;
#modprobe -r nv ...or whatever it's called
and insert Ati's instead;
#modprobe fglrx.
Then startx.

If that works, find out where [...through what file] the nv module gets loaded and correct that to load the fglrx module instead.
...usually through /etc/modules or an rc. script or somelikethat.

Solutions... not really

..
(EE) fglrx(0): board is third party board
..

The driver is barfing because you don't have a made-by-ati card, apparently.

The Nvidia installer, to get rid of it, run
(whatever the name is)
./blablahinstaller.run --uninstall

I'm guessing you guys are running Xfree v4.3... I have a 8500LE and i think it will only work with V4.2

I may be wrong, i'm tryin to downgrade my Xfree to 4.2 then install the drivers. I am currently using VESA. Once i get it working, i'll let you guys know

But You can read this in the readme file:

"Driver package for ix86 systems with libc6.2 (=glibc2.2) and XFree86 4.3.0 in rpm format"

I don't understand what is the problem with the Xfree 4.3?

Here's how I have a Radeon 9600 working w/2 monitors

I'm running the latest JAMD, which is a Redhat9-based distribution (Check it our if you haven't! It's optimized for x686, has a FIXED version of KDE 3.1.x, apt-get setup as well as Synaptic for a GUI based packager manager... It's just way cool!), so I'll presume that this applies to Redhat 9 also.

Let me preface by saying that I don't yet have it working the way I want to (with two monitors working side-by-side sharing a large desktop). The only modes I can get it to run in is single monitor (I can choose which monitor to use!), and clone mode. Whenever I attempt dual monitor, I get a similar experience to others: Both screens flash on and off with kind of a "doubled" image of the desktop on both, almost like they're trying to get the monitors to sync to un-attainable frequency, and then I revert back to a console prompt (mirrored in each monitor).

Basically, what I did was download the FireGL drivers others have also tried (http://www.schneider-digital.de/html...nload_ati.html), run the setup as per the instructions, and then manually edit the resulting XF86Config-4 file (/etc/X11/XF86Config-4). I'll post the final version of mine at the end of this post for example purposes (You "should" be able to copy and paste if the monitor timings match yours).

Specifically, here's what I found:

1. You have to disable Dri -OR- Acceleration as per the following (either one works, and since I'm not a 'Linux Guru', I don't know, but I'd guess that this is due to DRI being the only acceleration):

# === disable/enable XAA/DRI ===
Option "no_accel" "no"
Option "no_dri" "yes"

2. The following line of code is what controls the mode of display
(if you're using dual monitors, it controls stuff like Clone mode vs. Large display, etc.).

# === Screen Management ===
Option "DesktopSetup" "0x00000001"

3. You can't run DRI and xinerama together. Since I have to diable Dri for this "hack" to work, you can enable xinerama if you want via 'option "xinerama"'. This should be added in the ServerLayout section. Doing it hasn't helped me to get both displays working however. Note: If you want to use dual monitors, you have to add an additional monitor definition. Basically, you can use the drivers configurator, setup the driver for clone, and the neccesary information should be generated. You then have to hack the acceleration/Dri and the DesktopSetup as needed.

Hope this helps someone...

If anyone know how to get acceleration or a large desktop working, please post the details.

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"

# These are the default XKB settings for XFree86
# Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
# Option "XkbModel" "pc101"
# Option "XkbLayout" "us"
# Option "XkbVariant" ""
# Option "XkbOptions" ""

# Option "XkbDisable"

Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"

Xinerama and AtiRadeon 9600 Pro

So I've had the same experience as quite a few of the others that have posted about this problem.

I was finally able to get the xserver to run properly. It required that I run fglxr v.2.9.13, from ATI's website at http://mirror.ati.com/support/driver...0x4302913.html

Once I installed this and finally got the kernel source code installed fglxrconfig created an XF86Config-4 file that worked as long as I selected two monitors with multiple drivers, but it still has problems.
Just like the post above I can run using the default configuration with multiple monitors, my desktop appears to be streched accross both but will not allow me to move windows between the two. I can launch a process on either but it's stuck on that monitor. This effectively gives me two completely seperate monitors.

I can insert 'Option = "Xinerama"' in the 'ServerFlags' section of the XF8Config-4 file but you must change
'# === disable/enable XAA/DRI ===
Option "no_accel" "no"
Option "no_dri" "no" '
to
# === disable/enable XAA/DRI ===
Option "no_accel" "no"
Option "no_dri" "yes" '

If you activate Xinerama with out disabling dri the XServer will start but give no video and force you to exit the XServer and edit the XF86Config iwith command line vi.

When I enable Xinerama and disable dri I get some rather strange behavior. Both displays give me the same output but the mouse is able to move from one to the other. However I am only able to interact with the contents of one display. In addition the XServer does believe that there is another desktop and will launch windows on that phantom display.

If anyone has had luck getting the default ATI drivers to create a single desktop or in getting Xinerama to work properly please either post or send me an email with a solution.

Thanks!!

I've basically given up on linux for a while until new drivers etc. are released, I don't really have time to mess around and get it working right now, just gonna wait til the end of year holidays and hopefully then there'll be some new drivers or something, otherwise I'll stuff around with it some more then.
