Question What can be the problem with ATI 8.25.18 drivers?


Hi,

I have a problem with ATI 8.25.18 Radeon drivers. It's not my first drivers upgrade, but for the first time I have no idea what to do, to make them work properly. There was no problem with installation and the make.sh and make_install.sh files didn't show any errors. However, when I try to run my X server I get this message:

Code:
[wilku@alpha]-[~]# startx

could you post 'lsmod' and /etc/X11/xorg.conf. sometimes you have to edit this file, if it doesnt automatically when you ran the installer.

Currently I use the radeon driver because, when I try the fglrx the mentioned error occurs.

There is no problem to manually modprobe the fglrx module, so I think the module is ok. The problem can be with my X server.
Code:

The module is ok, the X server version too, so why doesn't it work?

Did you uninstall the old driver first? There is an uninstall script ( though it breaks your /etc/profile file - so back it up before running ) somewhere in /usr/X11/ati ( not really sure anymore ). If you didn't - do it and reinstall, worked for me.

Did you use driver installer? It seems to me, as the module is build for the wrong xorg version:
Quote:
[R200Setup] X version mismatch - detected X.org 7.0.0.0, required X.org 6.8.0.0
.

Anyway, I used the driver installer, which works really well, no need to run make.sh and make_install.sh.

I know that the driver installer has support for xorg 6.9, but I'm not sure about the drivers for a special version of X, so guess that might be the problem.
