Talking Fedora/Beryl/ATI Radeon 200 Problems!!!!!!


I installed Fedora Core 6 and found the drivers for my ATI Radeon 200 Intergrated Card. Then I decided to install Beryl and use it, after the install it tells me to pull it up in the terminal. When I do I get the following error:

Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
Checking for non power of two texture support : failed

Support for non power of two textures missing
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
beryl: glXBindTexImageEXT is missing

This is really becoming annoying, because it also makes my toolbar disappear and I can only work in the window I am currently in. So right now I am stuck in Firefox typing this thread.

Any held would be greatly appreciated.

Is 3D acceleration currently working for your card?

3d

I used glxinfo to find out and it said it was not, how can I go about turning on 3d accel?

Your problem might be caused by a lack of support for DRI, the 3D acceleration architecture. Its strange that your distro wouldn't have this, so ill just assume its a simple miss configuration rather then a hardware problem. Check your xorg.conf, it should have lines "option dri" and "option glx" or something like that in the section "modules".

Did it work

Well, not really, when I rebooted it came up with a Linux Error saying my display settings were wrong, now it is back to 800x600 and I can change it higher than that. I can do redownload the drivers from ATI, they have 3 different ones I'm not sure which one to use, I used the full package last time.

http://ati.de/support/drivers/linux6...64-radeon.html

That is the URL to the drivers, any suggestions?
