Question Help, ati radeon 9250


I totally lost have here... I ran out and brought an ati radeon 9250 pci 265 mb card about two months ago and still can can't get the card to work. I have post this problem in the hardware channel. DavidPhillips (Moderator) and Robert G. Hays tried to help. According to what I was told I don't have any video modules loaded. ( more information is this address: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=332639 ).

If this is so, could someone please let me know; what I need to do to get this card working...

thx

you need to get the ati .run file from ati here

https://support.ati.com/ics/support/...ge&folderID=27

and run it. it should give you a log if it fails. then post the log. i cant do much with what you gave me.

if you do a " #modprobe fglrx ", what output do you get.
(if you get nothing, check with "lsmod" if it's loaded )

looks like you compiled that kernel yourself...right ?
i see radeonfb and vesafb build into the kernel.

if you have more things compiled in , like drm , it won't work.
( drm is what fglrx is complaining about...)

maybe try to make those things modular instead of build in.
( leave only the vesafb compiled into the kernel. )

You're running the 2.4 kernel. The current ATI FireGL driver is compiled against 2.6.

Also, you need agpgart to be a module for it to work properly. If it's compiled directly into the kernel, fglrx won't be able to replace it, and you won't be able to use DRI.
