I guess mine ain't the overlooked issue: "My ATI laptop card doesn't allow X to start properly"... since so far I've been surfing over a lotta forums on this topic... and nothing works!
So, my Asus A6000 laptop features an ATI Radeon X700 video card, and I've installed Fedora Core 5 (kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5), which recognises the card.
BUT: The X interface doesn't start at all, so I have to connect to a CRT screen.
1) As suggested somewhere, I've tried and changed 'radeon' with 'vesa' in the Xorg.conf file. Nothing changes.
2) As suggested again, I've downloaded the official ATI driver (fglrx_6_8_0-8.25.18-1.i386
) for Xorg.
When I run: rpm -ivh fglrx_6_8_0-8.25.18-1.i386
, what I get is:
libstdc++.so.5 is needed by fglrx_6_8_0-8.25.18-1.i386
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2) is needed by fglrx_6_8_0-8.25.18-1.i386
The thing is, I checked and found out that I have /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6
I know I'm such a naif newbie, but...
Can you tell me what is the matter? This is driving my nights crazy!
