ATI Radeon 9200SE Problems


Hello,

well my problem is this.. I ca load up the X server.. but i get no 3d accelerations

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

I installed the ATI drivers from their web site.. followed all the instructions and everything
went like planned.. just when it comes to loading the drivers it just doesn't

im using Fedora Core 1
/usr/src
ATI linux linux-2.4 linux-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl redhat

from what i see.. when i goto the Display settings in my X server
i see
unknowin monitor
unknown video card

but if i goto the Duel head tab.. and check on the checkbox use duel head
i see

ATI Radeon 9200SE which is my video card

not sure why that is... any ideas? on why or how to fix this?
anything would be helpfull.. and if you need any other information
please ask me. THANKS

Well according to this on your output:

# **********************************************************************
# Graphics device section
# **********************************************************************

# Any number of graphics device sections may be present

# Standard VGA Device:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Standard VGA"
VendorName "Unknown"
BoardName "Unknown"

# The chipset line is optional in most cases. It can be used to override
# the driver's chipset detection, and should not normally be specified.

# Chipset "generic"

# The Driver line must be present. When using run-time loadable driver
# modules, this line instructs the server to load the specified driver
# module. Even when not using loadable driver modules, this line
# indicates which driver should interpret the information in this section.

Driver "vga"


It appears your not using an ATi driver and just a generic one. Try downloading the most appropiate driver to get 3d acceleration.

yeah.. that caught my attention aswell..

If you look at the next device section.. it gives the driver location and specs for the ATI drivers.. .. what if i comment out the first section?.. that would have to make it load the ATI right? that Config file was created with fglrxconfig not sure why it puts the VGA first then the ATI do you think this is the problem?
