Ok, that worked. I did aticonfig --initial. Rebooted, but now my X won't run.

Hmmm...I'm afraid that my card is too old. This driver is for newer cards. I looked at the Xorg log, and it gave me a list of all of the cards that are supported and mine is not. Has anybody had any luck with this card? It's a ATI 3D Rage Pro AGP. Thanks!

Hello,

Well If anyone is still wanting to know the previous questions that were asked of me I'll reply. I never received a new post email till today.

The reason to use the original command is so you can run this command to find the latest kernel in the system (so run after a yum update and get a new kernel but before you boot into it). But essentially the uname -r will do the same thing but puts in a current kernel rather than the latest kernel on the system. (basically you have to do more reboots!)

The original command :
Code:
yum install kernel-module-fglrx-$(rpm -q --queryformat="%{version}-%{release}\n" kernel | tail -n 1)
This command no longer work though, due to livna changing some name structures. Use the new one. (I've only tried on FC4)

Code:
yum install ati-fglrx
yum install kernel-module-fglrx-$(rpm -q --queryformat="%{version}-%{release}\n" kernel | tail -n 1)-$(rpm -q --queryformat="%{version}-%{release}" ati-fglrx)
Then after a kernel upgrade use the second line only as the ati-fglrx should auto update it's self.


Now for the latest post.

Try http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/Status It says support for the 3D Rage Pro. Though its not official ATI software it claims to implement DRI. I'm not sure if these are part of Xorg already do some digging before you wast time compiling, I don't have that card I can't really play about.


Good luck, and sorry to the other people asking me question even thought it was 6 months ago!
