Unhappy SAX2 problem! (ATI Graphics Card with 3D Acceleration)


Hi there!

Recently I bought a new powerful Notebook with an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 Card in it (3D Acceleration Support).

When I install SuSE Linux 10.0, the ATI RV350 NP graphics driver is installed by default. But ATI offers drivers for my card and for Linux. So I downloaded the actual drivers from this location:

https://support.ati.com/ics/support/...uestionID=1176

After the successful installation and a reboot of the system, everything looks fine, but "Hardware Information" still shows the ATI RV350 NP driver. So I want to start SAX2 to change the driver, but when I run SAX2 (via terminal or via YaST), the progress bar appears to load some things and then - the SAX2-Window doesn't appear. There was no problem before the installation of the new graphics driver.

I reinstalled SuSE Linux and tried the same again with same results.

Thanks for any help!

Please also post your xorg.conf after starting sax2 and /var/log/Xorg.0.log after starting the X server. To make sure you've got 3D acceleration run either the "ATI control panel applet" or glxinfo or glxinfo | grep direct. It should report enabled direct rendering.

[drm] failed to load kernel module "fglrx"
The module hasn't been built. Did you install the kernel-source package before installing the driver?

Thanks, I'm one step closer to the 3D paradise =)

So direct rendering is enabled now.
It also looks like some screensavers are faster (this is my first test :-) but now, all OpenGL screensavers don't work at all... further they stumbled, but now they don't appear anymore if I click on "test"... am I really close to the end of configuration?

oooooohhh... yeah

changed UseInternalAGPGART to "yes" and OpenGLOverlay to "on".
now this sexy 3d acceleration seems to work completely!

once again, leadazide, thank you very very very much for your support!

i grew up with microsoft windows and this week i radically decided to migrate everything to linux and go open from now on.
