just use the drivers that come with xfree/xorg, and use the drm from the kernel ... IMHO they work better (i have the same card as you and was never able to get 3d acceleration with ATI's drivers, but the xfree/xorg drivers work fine)

xorgconfig (if you use xorg ... i forget the xfree version ... i think it was xfree86config or XF86config)

if you want to use ATI's driver, then follow the instructions

hope you get the card working (and if you get more then 700 fps in glxgears with that card, please say how)

oh, well i thought that if you got as far as you did you would know enough .... hmm, owell .... before i confuse myself further

go into a terminal (command line ..... ) and type the following

Code:
su
<<enter your root password>>
XF86config
<<then follow the instructions>>
when it asks what card driver to use, say "6" (or look on the list, i believe 6 is the ati radeon driver)

i do hope you know enough to get around in the command line ......

YAY!, looks like you know some of the command line

ok, it said "permission denied" because you have to be root (the administrator, he can do anything, so don't use this user if you don't have to ... just in case)

use the "su" command to switch users and become root, then do the "./make.sh" thing

look it up in the Manuel for the monitor... for this tho, you could guess if you know the maximum resolution it supports

then next option is a bit tricker as theres no real way to guess that good (if its a LCD then choosing option 1 should be fine for the next)

hi,

maybe you can look in /var/log/xorg.0.log to find the error,
or type: cat /var/log/xorg.0.log | grep "(EE)"
and post the output here...
