Help :( ATI driver install & another question
 
I did a search and nothing came up.

Here is the question:
I have an ATO 9800 128mb installed but not the drivers. I went to ATI and it asked me to find first to: "If you are not sure which version of XFree86 you have installed, please download and run Check.sh from a command line to find out."

Im running 4.3 Great. I downloaded the 4.3 driver install and this is what I keep getting
"
[root@localhost root]# rpm -i fglrx-4.3.0-3.7.1.i386.rpm
file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of fglrx-4.3.0-3.7.1 conflicts with file from package XFree86-Mesa-libGL-4.3.0-2

What is going on? Do I need to delete the XFree86-Mesa-libGL-4.3.0-2? Well I tried to find it and nothing came up?


2 question
I have a D865PERL motherboard with integrated sound card "SoundMax". I installed Enemy Territory fine but I have noticed that Red Hat 9.0 dpesnt detect any sound card?

Any Ideas?

Try

rpm -i fglrx-4.3.0-3.7.1.i386.rpm --force

instead. The fglrx package wants to replace the library libGL.so from XFree86-Mesa-libGL-4.3.0-2 with it's own version.

Good luck!

Moved: How about posting in the correct forum as this is not a Success Story? Regards.

Thanks, It worked............ I think:D

I ran the command here is what it said,

Tailored kernel module for fglrx not present in your system.
You must go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod subdir
and execute './make.sh' to build a fully customed kernel module.
Afterwards go to /lib/modules/fglrx and run './make_install.sh'
in order to install the module into your kernel's module repository.
(see readme.txt for more details.)

well after I restarted..nothing.
I noticed in the list of video cards available..there is none listed for my ATI 9800 XT 128mb

Titan2k 03-06-2004 10:48 AM

Same Problem
 
Did you ever get it working? I am having the same problem. I have an XTASY 9200 SE 128MB PCI card (ATI Radeon 9200 SE VPU). After I did what you did I could get into KDE, but it was, as it said, slow with no 3D acceleration. If anyone can help please respond.

Ckret_01 03-06-2004 10:54 AM

yea and no..some stuff was installed ...I think but after I did the force command, this is what the OUTPUT was:

The last line says "please run 'fglrxconfig' now"
I ran the command and it just asked about my monitor settings?? Werid part is that it was already configured when I installed my Red Hat (it was listed)

So I am lost at this point but still searching........

I will post anymore stuff and if I get some clues about about your issue I will post as well.

Yeah, I have the same problem.

My system recognizes my Radeon 9600 now, but I don't think it'll do GL 3d acceleration.

If someone could help, it would be greatly appreciated

After I make that post I found something that might help, although I am stuck with it atm.

ATI Radeon Linux How-To

I'm stuck on part 3.3, I can't seem to do the GART patch installation.
Quote:

3.3 GART patch installation
This step has to be done by everybody, in order to enable nforce AGP Gart support in the kernel.

* cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.20 (change this to your kernel path)
* patch -p1 < linux-2.4.20-agpgart.diff (again, change to appropriate kernel)
Since I have Mandrake 9.2 I typed:
# cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.22-10mdk
# patch -p1 <linux-2.4.22-10mdk-agpgart.diff

Then it says the file does not exist. If anyone knows much about using the .diff program or GART patching any help would be greatly appreciated.





I also read on this forum that 3.7.0 drivers don't work and to use the 3.2.5 version. If the driver link brings up a weird page go back and right click and click save. I just tried it, but it didn't work because of some stuff I'd done with the above How-To. Might still work from a normal install though.

ooooooooooooooo..wait a min... when the OUTPUT was :
"ATI display drivers successfully installed
please run 'fglrxconfig' now"

I gave a list of option in to configure and there where a few GART questions, like to enable or disable etc....

Try entering, fglrxconfig

Titan2k 03-06-2004 06:08 PM

This is before I'm suppose to install the path. The kernel needs to be patched for AGP support since Mandrake 9.2 only has version 2.4.22 of the kernel. At least that is what I'm understanding from the help site.
