Because how/why would you need 3-d in the cli?

Nope. I like the title.

But the sticky feeling is good....lol

I'm having a problem with the ATI installation

when I'm doing sh make.sh in root@WhiteCastle:/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod#
this is what I'm getting :

Code:

@itz2000: use the 32 bit installer from ATI for slack 11 w/2.6 kernel's. it's the big download file at top of their linux driver download page. the way you are trying it there is no good for slack 11 now as we have a later/greater xorg.

can you please point me out to direct link since I have already downloaded 3 other versions and I'm confused now :S


also, the problem posted above had been solved with kernel config change, now I got other problem posted in this forum.


EDIT : This is the page I got into : http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/l...ux-radeon.html but the first link is x86_64 bit version! and I use 32 bit. also, the 3rd link is what I actually downloaded, so I got no clue what file you were talking about.
I'd be happy if u point me out.

Thanks!

the top link there on the page is what I mean, 55.7 megger one =D

the file is called:

ati-driver-installer-8.31.5-x86.x86_64.run

it does both x86 AND x86 machines that are 64bit in one file.

be sure that the fstab has the tmpfs line as mentioned on first page of this thread.

What kernel are you using?
Code:
uname -a
What does
Code:
lspci
say about your video?
If using the 2.6 kernels that Slackware 11 installs, did you install the radeon patch?

using 2.6.18.2 , tell me more about that "radeon patch", maybe I installed it, maybe not, I'm not sure what patch you're talking about.

Thanks for interesting though

How the hell should I know? It's your system.

Listen, if you want help,
A: Ask a direct question. Saying 'Done' means diddly squat.
B: YOU are in control of your system.

We are not here to give you a step-by-step tutorial on how to configure your system. Read. Research. Try stuff. Hire a magician, or a clown. If you cannot figure it out, or are stuck, we can try to point you in the right direction.

Answering 'Done' is fustrating, and means nothing.

I love you 2.

I won't get broken, with you or without you.

That's the linux spirit!

Fine. AFAIK, "Done" means your system is fine.

Don't ask again, unless you do so in the spirit intended.

Post #1 will be revamped soon

It has needed it for awhile.

Unfortunately, my job makes a full post edit take awhile...No single long block of time to really do anything.

As I said, "soon".

And thanks again, to all who have asked questions, and better yet, answered them.

Hi,

I have Debian penguins (etch and sid), both have 3d acc problem. It works beautifully with root, but not user.
Code:
Section "DRI"
        Mode         0666
EndSection
This part exists.
Difference of X.org.0.log between by user and root does not help much. following is only suspicious part, if any.
Code:
> (II) fglrx(0): [drm] removed 1 reserved context for kernel
> (II) fglrx(0): [drm] unmapping 8192 bytes of SAREA 0x96000 at 0xb7f48000
> FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.
fglrxinfo gives me
Code:
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.5.1)
when x is invoked by user. (When by root, it gives ATI such and such) fgl_glxgears does not want to kick in complaining
Code:
Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  143 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
  Serial number of failed request:  35
  Current serial number in output stream:  35
and glxinfo says no direct rendering. I also tried several runlevels.

I might have overlooked discussion, and apologize to invade into slackware forum..

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

Happy Penguins!
