Okay for instance when I play soltaire the cards tops will be cut off. Almost like the video card forgot to render it. Then when I slip a card over them they show up. I will try to get a screen shot and upload it for you. Also if I am playing for awhile the desktop effects engine will shut down causing my hard drive to spin and lock up.

I ran those two commands forum and here is the output.

Code:

I have not the slightest clue what the problem is. I have recently upgraded the kernel to 2.6.32.4. Still no success. Something still is not right though.

Did you get a chance to grab a screenshot?

Everytime I try to it locks up. I guess the best to describe it is to say half of the deck you are drawing from is there ans the other half just is not. I also sometimes get black cloches instead of graphics.

Unfortunately there's not much I can really suggest, then, other than to open up a bug report at http://bugs.freedesktop.org/ if the problem persists with the latest drivers.

Code:
(WW) The directory "/usr/share/fonts/local" does not exist.
(WW) The directory "/usr/share/fonts/CID" does not exist.
(WW) The directory "/usr/share/fonts/local" does not exist.
(WW) The directory "/usr/share/fonts/CID" does not exist.
The above are common but I don't know why you have two copies. That is odd. Do you still have font lines in your xorg.conf? This also suggests you need newer code than what is in 13.0.

Code:
(WW) AllowEmptyInput is on, devices using drivers 'kbd', 'mouse' or 'vmmouse' will be disabled.
(WW) Disabling Mouse0
(WW) Disabling Keyboard0
The above are common but I don't see them anymore, perhaps because I removed these from my xorg.conf or newer code.

Code:
(WW) RADEON(0): LVDS Info:
(WW) RADEON(0): LCD DDC Info Table found!
I've never seen the above before and can't comment further.

Code:
(WW) RADEON(0): DRI init changed memory map, adjusting ...
(WW) RADEON(0):   MC_FB_LOCATION  was: 0x47ff4000 is: 0x47ff4000
(WW) RADEON(0):   MC_AGP_LOCATION was: 0xffffffc0 is: 0x49ff4800
The above code, in general, is not uncommon but I don't see it anymore. I can't comment on the hexadecimal addresses anyway as these would be fairly specific to your hardware.

It is possible the coding is older then what I need. I have made a screen shot and uploaded it. Look at the deck of cards you draw from half of the card is missing.

I am now wondering if I should not reinstall xorg. What would be the easiest way to do so from the slackware 13 disk?

Another option is you can download and upgrade your packages for libdrm, mesa, and xf86-video-ati from slackware-current and see if that helps. These are a little more current than 13.0 but still quite a bit behind the gits

Download next three links (for 32bit).
libdrm
Mesa
xf86-video-ati

Then upgrade your packages (upgradepkg *txz).

Try that without any xorg.conf.

If that doesn't help you, you might need newer code. You can search here at linuxquestions for best solution of gaining slackbuild style script.

One of the more recent is here. I'm not sure if kms is working for r300 but you can also follow the directions but maybe not compile newer kernel. If you do follow instructions and have kms also configured in kernel and it doesn't work you can try to start by adding in your lilo or grub file radeon.modeset=0 to stop kms in kernel. A few lines from my grub (menu.lst) file are:
Code:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
  title Linux x86_64 2.6.33-rc3 on (/dev/sda3) modeset=1 kms
  root (hd0,2)
  kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.33-rc3 root=/dev/sda3 ro radeon.modeset=1
# Linux bootable partition config ends
# Linux bootable partition config begins
  title Linux x86_64 2.6.33-rc3 on (/dev/sda3) modeset=0 no-kms
  root (hd0,2)
  kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.33-rc3 root=/dev/sda3 ro radeon.modeset=0
# Linux bootable partition config ends
As you can see, this partition is using 64 bit. If you go this route you would have to alter the lines for your system/kernel/etc.
