yet another ATI installation issue (radeon 9250)


Distro: Fedora Core 5
Kernel: 2.6.17-1.2145_FC5

I think the ATI driver (version 8.24.8, as the later versions won't work with my card, and even this one has to have a file replaced) is incompatible with my kernel (other people posted problems with the 2.6.17 kernel and the ATI drivers), but I want to make sure before downgrading. Here is the log from the install:

Code:

As you can see, there are a lot of errors in there, and I can't make heads or tails of it. Also, here is the output from modprobe fglrx

Code:
FATAL: Module fglrx not found.
Regardless of how this turns out, I am never getting another ATI card.

Well, I get impatient, so I went ahead and uninstalled the 2.6.17 kernel, then installed 2.6.16-1.2133_FC5.i686 and the corresponding kernel-devel package by downloading the rpms from the updates repo. It installed great, but when I started
Code:
#/usr/X11R6/bin/aticonfig --initial
It complained about libfglrx_pp.so.1. So, after a quick google, I typed these commands, and then ran aticonfig again.

Code:
#ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libfglrx_pp.so.1.0 /usr/X11R6/lib/libfglrx_pp.so.1

#ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so

#ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/linux/libfglrxdrm.so /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/libfglrxdrm.so

---------------------
#ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.o /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.o

#ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/linux/libfglrxdrm.a /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/libfglrxdrm.a
---------------------
##### The above two commands were what I was supposed to do, and I did, but the two above them linked the only files that showed up with ls, so I did both to be on the safe side
Then I tweaked my xorg.conf to the following

Code:
# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display
#Section "Monitor"
#	Identifier   "aticonfig Monitor 0"
#EndSection
#Section "Screen"
#	Identifier "aticonfig Screen 0"
#	Device     "ATI Graphics Adapter 0"
#	Monitor    "aticonfig Monitor 0"
#	DefaultDepth     24
#	SubSection "Display"
#		Viewport   0 0
#		Depth     24
#	EndSubSection
#EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "single head configuration"
	Screen      0  "aticonfig Screen 0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "Files"

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)

Section "InputDevice"

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
#	Option	"Xleds"		"1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
#	Option	"XkbDisable"
# 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"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
#	Option	"XkbOptions"	"ctrl:nocaps"
#
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "kbd"
	Option	    "XkbModel" "pc105"
	Option	    "XkbLayout" "us"

	Option	    "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
	Option	    "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
 ### Comment all HorizSync and VertSync values to use DDC:
	Identifier   "aticonfig Monitor 0"
	VendorName   "Nokia"
	ModelName    "447L"
	HorizSync    30.0 - 64.0

EndSection

	EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "DRI"
	Group        0
	Mode         0666
EndSection
Finally, I removed "rhgb quiet" from grub.conf, rebooted, and everything worked!
