Unhappy !!! ATI Radeon 7000 OpenGL Messed Up !!!


Hi, I'm using a Radeon 7000 video card under Mandrake 9.2. The problem that I have is that I can't run games in OpenGL mode. The video looks really really crappy and very laggy.
Specially Unreal Tournament 2004. I got the demo for both Linux and Windows. Under windows, the graphics are much better and not laggy at all. But under Linux, it's a whole different story. As soon as I select OpenGL, everything gets messed up and can't even think of playing.
I went to ATI website, as there might be some drivers for it. But it does not have linux drivers for Radion 7000.
Is there anything that I can do to improve my graphics or should I just stick to windows for gaming (the ultimate answer).

I take it you are using the dri drivers. I can post my XF86Config file from my laptop (it runs a Radeon 7500 chipset) late tonight. I run SuSE however, so there will be differences. However, all the major settings will be the same.

I went to http://www.xfree86.org/~alanh/ and downloaded the relevant drivers (radeon_drv.o etc.), replaced the original ones and the XFree binary. Then I recompiled the linux-drm-4.3.0-kernelsource.tar.gz (make -f Makefile.linux radeon.o) and copied the radeon.o to my kernel-modules. If that will not work for you submit your /var/log/XFree86.*.log and perhaps I can find something there to help you.

I went to that website and clicked on this link http://www.xfree86.org/~alanh/drivers/x86 But there are a lot of *.o files. Which ones do I have to download? or do I need all of them?

Ohh, and radeon.o of course (which I compiled from drm-kernel*).
