I'm on debian etch, got a mobility radeon 9700 in this laptop. I'm trying to install the drivers for it.
I've followed all the instructions here
to the letter, and yet when I do a "fglrxinfo" i still get the following:
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.5.1)
They mention this problem on another ATI page as a "persistant loading of the mesa driver" or something, and the fix is apparently the first fix mentioned on the page i have linked above:
# mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri
# ln -s /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri
But that doesn't do anything. Any ideas?
