which driver was/is loaded then ?
i got a " not permitted " error when doing a " modprobe fglrx " while the " radeon " driver was loaded.
By looked good I mean that the install of the ATI drivers went fine, no errors at all and it properly set up my xorgconf file. But then when I did a lsmod I was disappointed to see that they weren't actually loaded up. So I mean that since the install went fine I had originally assumed that the driver was working so I didn't initially think there was any problems until I tried to install a few 3-d games that just give me pages of errors because of opengl problems.
Right now when I do an lsmod there are no drivers loaded that have anything to do with video or 3d. Just my sound drivers are loaded. I tried to put the following in to rc.local just for experimentation purposes:
but that doesn't start up fglrx either. It just spits out the same error.
I found this thread here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...03/11/4/114078
that is kind of helpful. It references a thread by a poster named "EnigmaZ" but does not link to the thread. I have tried to search for the thread but I didn't turn up anything. Maybe if I can find that thread I will be able to figure out how to fix it.
