fglrx works but partially


Slackware-current, kernel, 6.9.0, fglrx-8.23.7-1

I'e been trying to make direct rendering work on radeon 9200 with fglrx 8.23.7-1 (...but i've tried also different versions). Fglrx module compiles with no problems. X starts with no error. Glxinfo gives "direct rendering: Yes". Glxgears works preety well - "10587 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2117.229 FPS". Foobillard, warzone2100 work with no problems...BUT quake3 hangs display, but still work. I mean i can push ` and write "quit" and q3 quits. fgl_gears doesn't work as it should. It displays cube, whole blue, with no gears on every face and it gives:
$ fgl_glxgears 
Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
X Error of failed request:  BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  14 (X_GetGeometry)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x0
  Serial number of failed request:  51
  Current serial number in output stream:  51
Anybody has any idea what's wrong?

you should run "aticonfig" without any options. then you get a list of all available options. If I remember it right there was an option (--tls=off???) if you have problems running fgl_glxgears (it is written in the aticonfig help).. just try to run aticonfig with all your options again including this new option, perhaps it helps...

another suggestion (about the error above, x_getgeometry and window etc.): could it be that in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf you don't have any window sizes specified. if so, perhaps it helps to put in the "DisplaySize" x y into the I think Monitor or Screen Section...

Also make sure you have added this :
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
to your fstab and restarted. If not it causes all kinds of strange errors. And Slack does not have it in there by default.
