If you want good linux performance now, pick up a FX 5950 from Nvidia.

The ATI drivers are just not up to scratch at the moment. Take back the card for a refund, and buy nvidia instead.

I love my ATI cards, they are the best for Windows gaming, but under linux the drivers are poor, and I doubt they will improve for a good 6 months to a year

Forgive me for slipping into the thread, but it seems like the people I need advice from are right here...and I'm just not comfortable with kernel modules.

If I'm running ATI 3.7.6 drivers in SuSE 9.1 (SuSE rpms) and want to upgrade to the SuSE packaged 3.9 drivers, would I follow the same procedure as a new install? Or do I need to do something to remove or disable the old drivers first?

Thanks,

Keith

So I will get the same performance running a 5950 on Linux as I would in Windows? Give or take or is the stilla big difference, just not as poor as ATI?

Yes, and in some games the 5950 gives even better performance than in windows (Savage is a great example).

Guys - I thought my ATI drivers are working but they are not.

ok, I am past the frustration since I have come so far even though I have nothing to show for it except a sucessful install of FC1.

When I type in "flrxinfo" in konsole, it reads this...

Code:
[carlos@localhost /]$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.3 Mesa 4.0.4
Why are my ATI drivers not working if I walked through the fglrxconfig utility?

Please help me out - I am so lost trying to install these damn drivers.

My 9600 works great, not sure why anyone would think ATI drivers do not work.

Try running racer if you want to see if your card is fast enough..

I'm in the same boat! I installed the ATI drivers by the book, and prolly did it a dozen times too. I'm still getting this Mesa GLX Indirect bull****. I have a 9600XT and RedHat EL 3 (2.4.21). Please, please, please, someone tell me how to make this work!

Did you ever actually load the drivers with modprobe fglrx? I've found this to happen when I configured fglrx without loading the drivers first, and of course it will occur if I haven't restarted the X server using either CTRL+ALT+Backspace, or by rebooting, as the "other" drivers I previously used are still loaded in memory until I do.

And naturally, if DRI is not disabled in the kernel (as it should be), you will get this as well, since the kernel drivers will take precedence over the inserted fglrx drivers.

Lastly, did you edit the correct file with the fglrxconfig utility? The default save name for the file generated by fglrxconfig is /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, but that doesn't do you much good if the default X configuration file for your distro is /etc/X11/XF86Config, /etc/XF86Config, or --in the event that you use X.org and not XFree86-- /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

So it's possible that your distribution is not even using the file you just generated, in which case you should run fglrxconfig again and save to the correct filename, or just copy the generated file over the correct file (back up the old one first).

I don't know how to check whether or not DRI is loaded into the kernel by default. I'm using RedHat Enterprise Linux 3 AS, which has it's own custom 2.4.21 kernel.

The fact that it's used by 0 services is not really relevant, since we already know you aren't using the fglrx driver to drive the X server in your current session.

But the fact that it loads OK is a good sign.

What we would like to do now is to actually have the driver being the one used to drive the X server in future sessions.

So it seems to me we need to know what config file X is actually using, whether that is the same one you have configured, and what driver you're using atm. I suspect the "radeon" driver from the kernel, since drivers loaded by the kernel tend not to appear in an lsmod, that driver would use the kernel DRM, and obviously, nothing in your list is using any video devices-- but you have X in some way atm, so something is using the device. Just not anything on the lsmod list.

Which X server are you using, XFree86 or X.org? If the latter, I would check /etc/ and /etc/X11/, find the file I configured using fglrxconfig, and just copy it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf (not forgetting to change the font paths). if XFree86, I would check the same two folders and see just how many XFree86 configuration files I actually had, then try to figure out which one was supposed to be the one in use, then copy the file that I configured using fglrxconfig to that file (backing up the other first).

I'm sure there's a way to get X to tell you what config file it's using, but I don't know it offhand, and I don't have time to look it up atm.

Hope this helps.

re

this is RH Enterprise Linux, not Fedora, so it's XFree86, not Xorg. The file it's using is XF86config-4. That's all there is.

OK, that all looks fine (assuming that your mouse actually is at /dev/mouse, and that the horizontal and vertical refresh rates for your monitor are correct). The only thing that might be a problem depending on what you want is that you're going to be using Video Overlay rather than OpenGL Overlay, but even that has nothing to do with the drivers actually running.

Have you restarted the X server since you installed the drivers (reboot preferred)?
