installing ATI Proprietary drivers in Slacware 10


like the ATI page said I did
Code:
rpm -Uh --force fglrx-4.3.0-3.14.6.i386.rpm
but I get the following error message when I do that I have a Radeon 7200 or so I have been led to think...
Code:

Have you used swaret lately? If not you can install it and run swaret --dep to try to resolve dependencies as Slackware does not have any incorperated tool to automatically resolve dependencies like "other" distro's do. I would try that unless you want to wait for someone with more knowledge about dependency errors replies.

use " rpm2tgz <rpm-file> " to make a "tgz " package.
then install it with installpkg or pkgtool.

Just noticed that you were trying to install the latest ATI fglrx drivers... They won't work on a radeon 7200. Either use the one supplied by xorg (easy, "xorgconfig" as root or su) OR get better results using DRI (dri.sourceforge.net), but much more complicated.

If that was a typo and you have a 9200 (and not a 7200), look here for a veasy ATI install guide:

Holler if you need clarification

well the thing is I was trying to play Wolfenstein ET. But it spit out some errors at me (I'm not in linux right now I"ll post the errors tonite when I get home) So i'll try the xorgconfig thing, but before I do that is there some file that I can back up in case I screw things up

You can backup the original xorgconfig file, just copy and paste it(/etc/X11/xorg.conf) to your home directory, then if you screw it up and x doesn't start, all you have to do after you log in is cd /directory/backupfileisin as root and then "cp xorg.conf /etc/X11". Once that is done then do a "shutdown -r now" and that will reboot the machine, then startx as normal and everything will be as it was.
You could also just run xorgconfig at the cli as root and change things around until x starts again.
