Question Can't configure Xfree86 with ATI Rage Fury Pro (TF)

hi, I'm new on this...

I've tried with "ati" and "r128" driver but always get the same message: (EE) No screens found.

My dist is Debian Woody, (x v.4.0.1 or something like that).

Is posible that if I use the latest version of Xfree86 4.2 I can make my X run?

Can I get a .deb package with the latest version? How can I do that?

I was having a similar situation with ATI Rage and X 4.2. I think it's a gotcha. Here's the deal: boot up to Mandrake 8.*, configure X, pick 4.2, no matter how I do it the screen is either off or blank, go reconfigure X, pick 3.3.6, the same thing happens in full circle. I think the installer doesn't reflect the change perfectly. It still keeps the wrong selection in memory. I had to reboot.

You may be able to set it up with X 3.3.6 first attempt. Do NOT be tempted to use 4.*.

The ATI rage fury pro seems to works just fine with X4.1.0 .I had to tweak it with X3.3.6 .
I am loading the modules; dbe,glx,dri
then in section "dri" use an entry of mode 0666
I am using mandrake 8.1

you could run XF86Config it should reconfigure for you. You will need to know your hardware. To be on safe side backup the xf86config file in /etc/X11 if it fails you could alway rename the backup to xf86config
