Installation of drivers ATI Radeon X1950 Pro


I left a posting over in the newbie section before I found this. I am having a hard time getting my ATI Radeon X1950 Pro PCIe card drivers installed. I went to SuSe documentation section and tried the easy way, first driver and got

[HTML]Sax2 cannot offer activation of the 3D Subsystem because your graphics card/driver doesn't support 3D[/HTML]

Here is what I have so far in a terminal:

Please pardon the quote brackets but I couldn't find brackets for code.

sh ati-driver-installer-7-11-x86.x86_64.run

Lenard -- do you have the same video card and did you get it to work?

I managed, late last night to get the driver installed but still no 3D, even with the ATI driver from the AMD/Ati site.

Ended up installing PCLOS. Which I have always liked, but it didn't see my external hard drive until I disconnected from firewire and plugged it in USB, because it is formatted FAT32, when PCLOS installed, it treated it like a windows drive.

I still would like to eventually give SuSe a whirl, but not if it won't install the drivers to my video card correctly.

No, I do not have an ATI Radeon X1950 Pro PCIe card, I have an ATI graphics interface as part of my Acer Aspire 5000 series laptop;

01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS485 [Radeon Xpress 1100 IGP]


I posted the two main steps I took after downloading the ati-driver-installer-7-11-x86.x86_64.run package. I did choose to build a Distribution Specific Driver Package (fglrx64_7_1_0-8.433-1.x86_64.rpm) and install it.

For the details see: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-build-602184/
