3D acceleration in ATI Mobility Radeon X700 (Acer Aspire 1694WLMi)
First of all I have to tell you that I am a complete newbie in Linux.
I've installed Fedora Core 4 in my Acer Aspire 1694WLMi. After some work (and lots of hours in google ) I could get my soundcard, wi-fi, and my video card working in 1280x800 (when I've installed FC4, the screen resolution was an ugly 800x600).
The problem is: how do I enable 3D acceleration in the video card?
Thank you very much for your attention!!
I have an Acer Travemate 4402 with Radeon X700. Could someone let me know how to get my videocard working with the Ati driver?
I am running FC4, KDE, kernel 2.6.13. I installed the X.org driver from ATI website and getting the error message "driver does not provide the firegl x11 extension" when I start ATI Control.
Please help me!
Have you installed the X.org version in the ATI site?
If you didn't, I suggest you to do it :)
After that, go to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, replace it with this one and reboot:
You will still have problems with the 3D acceleration, but at least FC4 will look fine :)
Thank you very much. That file worked out great for me. So now how do we enable that 3D thing? :)
It's a good question...I'm waiting an answer from ATI.
Once I have the solution, I'll post it here ;)
I haven't looked into the 3D acceleration yet. I'm still struggling with getting wireless (broadcom 802.11 b/g), and the battery management to work. Any suggestions? :)
Change this section:
Identifier "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon Mobility X700 (RV410)"
BoardName "Unknown video card"
Option "MonitorLayout" "LVDS, TMDS"
and add the following two options, if Ati driver is installed this should enable 3D accel (worked for me under suse 9.3)
Option "no_accel" "no"
Option "no_dri" "no"
I have this machine running with Mandriva 2005 and 3D works with framerates around 4000 (with the latest ATI drivers)
I followed this guide www.lirmm.fr/~yousfi/divers/acer/
I'm sure you should be able to make it work on Fedora as well.
I hope this helps :-)
