And how does the absence of "extmod" affect me? Do I have any limitations?

I have no clue how it will affect you but from my box I have no problems with 3d acc, tranparentence, games and so on. The only problem i have is some invalid shape when starting xine and mplayer but my movies still play very good.

First of all, thank you very much! It seems that my card is recognized as it should be, and the driver is loaded properly!
But I have some strange problem... When I try to run the Enemy Territory game I receive this output:

Maybe you know what I can do for it to work? Can it be something with GLX?

Again, thanks a lot!

Already found the solution in another thread, so the solution is running:

export LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/dri/:/usr/lib/ati-fglrx/modules/dri/

After this, everything works great!

I just deleted the line with load extmod, the strange thing is that my login screen is at 1600X1200 and i can't change the resolution after i log in because the display manager wil not run. Should i have changed something else in the config file?

now that i know of. To tell the truth my res is at 1600x1200 and I havn't thought about changing it but when I get my linux partitions up what I can do is see if my res can change. But, in the mean time I can read up on extmod more.

ok doing alittle work I found this

2. extmod:
Loads module for performing common functions in X Server.

if this module do common funcations in X server then yes this module might be the reason for the res not being changable because it removes the funcationaty for res change. Try this remove the highest res from your xorg file and see if everything dip down (the highest res {the one after 1600x1200} is used). In the mean time I'm going to get fedora core back on my machine to see if I can find a walk around.... hopefully.

also look at your XF86config file for res. lol tring what I can.

I think you just have to configure your xorg.conf so that the highest resolution is what you want. Like this:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]"
Device "aticonfig-Device[0]"
Monitor "aticonfig-Monitor[0]"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection

By the way, maybe someone knows what this line means? (export...)
And how can I run it at startup for me not to run it manually each time Linux starts?

Thanks!
