Installing ATI driver, fglrx


hello!

I'm trying to install ATI Radeon 9600XT driver from ati.com
I've downloaded this fglrx rpm but it requires me lots of other stuff to install manually which I can't find Slackware packages to,
I've looked for a source installation (which would have worked...) but there isn't one available since it's ATI's closed source.

This is the error I got for the RPM try :
Code:
 root@WhiteCastle:/home/zuki/Desktop# rpm -ivh fglrx_6_8_0-8.31.5-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:

Please read cwwilson's guide thoroughly. Then try and install the drivers.
If you still have problems try posting it in that thread.

cwwilson's guide is the sticky thread in Slackware forum : Enabling 3d acceleration for X11

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 : you downloaded an rpm? Download the ATI Driver Installerfrom ATI and use that. It works fine.

Looking at the error messages, it appears that you are missing your modules directory. Did you install the modules for the kernel?

I did downloaded their RPM and used rpm2pkg to make it *.tgz file for installpkg *.tgz file.

It looked the same to me, I've reconfigured kernel few min ago and currently compiling it.
I will post results later.

Recompiled kernel with those modules, and it passed that phase, but now I got other problem(sort of)

when I done
Code:
root@pooter:/lib/modules/fglrx# cd /usr/X11R6/bin
root@pooter:/usr/X11R6/bin# dir
like he did
and entered dir, it showed other output :
Code:
 This is what I got (basically ls)

Help?!

try aticonfig --initial

I've used the ati driver installer quite a few times and never run into a problem.

This is the infamous problem with the ATI drivers on Linux : 3D Acceleration doesn't work for a lot of people. When I was using Slackware 10 I somehow managed to get it working, but once I upgraded to Slackware 11, and after hours of searching, nothing I tried would change it from using MESA to fglrx. The only solution I found was to get an Nvidia card

# This XF86Config file is designed for use with the VESA framebuffer.

# For most OSs the protocol can be omitted (it defaults to "Standard").
# When using XQUEUE (only for SVR3 and SVR4, but not Solaris),
# uncomment the following line.
#    Option     "Protocol"      "Xqueue"
# Set the keyboard auto repeat parameters.  Not all platforms implement
# this.
#    Option     "AutoRepeat"    "500 5"
# Specifiy which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1)).
#    Option     "Xleds" "1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
#    Option     "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults).  For example, for a European
# keyboard, you will probably want to use one of:
#
#    Option     "XkbModel"      "pc102"
#    Option     "XkbModel"      "pc105"
#
# If you have a Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
#
#    Option     "XkbModel"      "microsoft"
#
# If you have a US "windows" keyboard you will want:
#
#    Option     "XkbModel"      "pc104"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
#
#    Option     "XkbLayout"     "de"
#
# or:
#
#    Option     "XkbLayout"     "de"
#    Option     "XkbVariant"    "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
#
#    Option     "XkbOptions"    "ctrl:swapcaps"
# These are the default XKB settings for X.Org
#
#    Option     "XkbRules"      "xorg"
#    Option     "XkbModel"      "pc101"
#    Option     "XkbLayout"     "us"
