Exclamation ::ATI Drivers::

I've tryed Mandrake, Redhat, Slackware, Suse you name it ... but i simply cannot succed to install Ati drivers with full 3D acceleration. I installed Suse 9.2 and look... a wonder it's not in conflict with anything when i installed drivers. Normally i installed source of kernel etc.. even built manualy drivers like the "How to" said but nothing works it says something like this
direct rendering "no"
cannot find PCI :2:0:0 device AGP not enabled and so on ...
only damn Mesa(when i type glxinfo), now i can't even go to X. I understand that ati released new drivers but they are not helpfull very much, anyway i have Radeon 9600 Pro and Nforce 2 chipset

so ANY help will be appreciated, maybe a little walkthrough through this nightmare.

Try Knoppix. The automatic hardware detection is a major strength of that distro.

Knoppix won't give you 3D acceleration for R300 and later.

Morao sam pobrisat PM sandučić jer je bio pun pa je otišla i tvoja poruka sa adresom. Ak si još uvjek na Slacku pošalji ponovo da ti dam svoj zadnji kernel config. SuSE 9.2 će još neko vrijeme imat problema sa Atijem kolko vidim.

Ako se to neda na Slacku sredit onda će se teže drugdje, a vjerujem da se može.
