Question about Catalyst 12.8
Sorry for disturbing you. I have a question, i own a laptop with AMD Radeon HD 7670 (honestly, i'm a newbie with this AMD Radeon stuff), and i followed the instructions that are on this thread ()http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...nt-4175418112/
But those were for Catalyst 12.6 in slackware current. and i used them to install Catalyst 12.8 in Slackware 14, graphic interface works good, but, when i use the glxgears or fgl_glxgears command in the command line, it says:
"There was a problem initializing Catalyst Contro center Linux Edition. It could be caused by the following.
No AMD graphics driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly.
Please install the AMD driver appropiate for you AMD hardware, or configure using aticonfig".
My main question is ... What i need to do to see if the driver is installed and working properly? or this messages displayed are telling me that there is no AMD driver? or i should uninstall the Catalyst 12.8 and install it again ?
Any help is greatly appreciate it ...
Did you blacklist the default "radeon" and "ati" driver modules from loading?
Have you run aticonfig --initial after installing the fglrx driver? Is fglrx appearing in lsmod output?
Make sure that your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file exists and loads the fglrx driver.
The radeon module is automatically blacklisted by the installer. I would rather think that there were either errors during the install, leading to an incomplete install, or, like 414N already suggested, that the OP forgot to run aticonfig --initial.
Thanks for the reply ...
I blacklisted ati and readeon ...
I ran the aticonfig --initial
I think i should erase the ati from the blacklist ... lemme do it and i will tell you if it was success or fail ...
I'm pretty sure your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file will tell you what's wrong.
Thank you for all your replies.
I really appreciate your help. . And it is fixed.
Somehow i messed and missed something, so i did
- a fresh install,
- unzipped the driver,
- chmod +x driver,
- aticonfig --initial
- vi /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and added the radeon driver (blacklist radeon)
- lsmod (to make sure flgrx module is there)
- vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf to make sure X will use the flgrx driver
- and in command line introduce fgl_glxgears to see if it runs ...
All went well ... i thought that i haven't missed nothing ,,, but anyway, now it works.
Thank you to all of you =)
