Cool Re: ATI X700 Fedora Core 4 Problems

Hi Every 1,

I am having problems with my ATI Radeon X700 pci-e card being accepted on fedora core 4.
I am a complete newbie to Linux and have read many of the articles on this forum and others concerning the issue of these ATI graphics cards.
I have followed and downloaded the RPM packages from the ATI support website to no avail. I'm currently using the vesa drivers but restricted to a 640x480 resolution. When I try to increase the resolution size again this too was not successful.
The ATI Radeon X700 card is not present in the “Video Card” device list.
I am at a complete loss at the moment I am considering to buy another graphics card??
Can any 1 help me plz….??
Kind Regards

Ati is never easy so most GNU/Linux users choose not to use them.

have you edited the xorg.conf file (it tends not to be done automatically ... and i doubt even FC is "friendly" enough to do that for you.

There should be stacks of information on the ATi site/forum regarding this. And google should turn up stacks of guides.

Getting video drivers to work is always a bit of a pain, especially for new users, so persevere, we all had to learn it.

One thing that should at least get you higher resolution is changing the vesa driver to ati.
