Hmm..I think I have the same driver with the same distro. Mine works so far as I know.

Does your XF86Config-4 file in /etc/X11 reflect the fglrx setup? Are you getting a specific error that people more knowledgeable about Linux are able to help out with?

thx for replay
i did execute the fglrx setup and i created the config file
during starting the x server the following "errors" occour
(i dont know if this helps you but that is all i could extract from the log file)


(II) Primary Device is: PCI 01:00:0
(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:1) found
(--) Chipset ATI R350 NH (R9800) found

(EE) fglrx(0): DRIScreenInit failed!
(WW) fglrx(0): ***********************************************
(WW) fglrx(0): * DRI initialization failed! *
(WW) fglrx(0): * (maybe driver kernel module missing or bad) *
(WW) fglrx(0): * 2D acceleraton available (MMIO) *
(WW) fglrx(0): * no 3D acceleration available *
(WW) fglrx(0): ********************************************* *

You do not need to install a separate AGP driver.

I am not sure why your version is not working properly. I personally would try a re-install, and if that does not work try contacting tech support at ATI (after all, you did spend a fair bit of money on that card didn't you? Some support would be nice)

Ah yes. You can either follow the instructions above to make a 'tailored' kernel, or try the following:

- configure kernel sources; usually done with the following commands:

# cp /boot/vmlinuz.config /usr/src/linux/.config
# cp /boot/vmlinuz.version.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux
# cp /boot/vmlinuz.autoconf.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux
# cd /usr/src/linux
# make cloneconfig dep

This is assuming you have installed the kernel (which you can find in YAST, keeping thumbing through until you find it).

After you have an individualized kernel, the once more do the RPM.

Glad to know it works. Seriously!

I am not sure how to explain this (anyone out there following along that can do so more clearly?), but the lines above take you linux kernel and make it a customized one, which you can then tailor with specific drivers.
