Angry ATI-Driver Install - Mandrake ?

hello !

for now i worked for lightyears to get my fu**** radeon 9600pro working on mandrake but i still don`t succeed...

i try everything, use every hint in the whole web but ut still doesnt work.
2D accelleration is working but i hate this annoying error-msg at startup X.

maybe someone can help me for using mandrake with X in 3D ?

i think this error-message is well known...

(II) fglrx(0): [drm] register handle = 0xd6000000
(EE) fglrx(0): [agp] unable to acquire AGP, error "xf86_ENODEV"
(EE) fglrx(0): cannot init AGP
(II) fglrx(0): [drm] removed 1 reserved context for kernel
(II) fglrx(0): [drm] unmapping 8192 bytes of SAREA 0xe1a52000 at 0x4023c000
(WW) fglrx(0): ***********************************************
(WW) fglrx(0): * DRI initialization failed! *
(WW) fglrx(0): * (maybe driver kernel module missing or bad) *
(WW) fglrx(0): * 2D acceleraton available (MMIO) *
(WW) fglrx(0): * no 3D acceleration available *
(WW) fglrx(0): ********************************************* *

i use mandrake-kernel 2.6.3 and xfree 3.4 - all with actuall patches and stuff
if i do "modprobe" on fglrx and agpgart the result is that both are loaded
it doesnt matter if i choose "internal" or "external" agpgart in xf86config and/or change values in bios - the result is always the same as shown above...

chipset is nforce2 on abit-board

please help a dumb

if you need further info just ask !!!



btw: i`m really not very experienced in using linux...

ATI's own driver and instructions Looks like your best bet.
