fglrx-4.3.0-3.7.6.i386.rpm - ATI Linux 3D Driver


I am trying to find the file "fglrx-4.3.0-3.7.6.i386.rpm" and have had no luck except for ATI's main website. This is a graphics driver for Linux machine for the graphics card 128 ATI Radeon 9200 series, and I am wondering is there any other website where you can download this file besides ATI's main site. The reason I ask is because everytime I try and download it from the main site there is a long wait and nothing happens. Is the file just outdated or something? If it is, does anyone know which graphics card (ATI perferabbly) will produce 3D Graphic Acceleration with Suse Linux 9.0 Professional Edition? (Hopefully I put this thread in the right forum!)

Thanks!
Frank

there have been many problems with people using the new ATI cards in Linux. Its pretty hard to get them to work. I too am running SuSE 9.0, and so far I have not sucessfully gotten my 9600 to work. Try searching for this first, because I know of at least two other comprehensive threads about this, which may or may not fix your problem. HTH

I just went to ATI's site to check that out and had no problem download that RPM, If you still have problems it may be your browser, Try it again if you can't get it let me know and i'll email it to you

Be careful installing that driver from ATI.
I installed it and a few days later, my computer started acting strangely (kept crashing) and eventually wouldn't boot. Had to fresh reinstall Fedora and now it works fine.
I'm not saying it's definitely the driver but I didn't do anything else under SU that could've stuffed it up.

Are you downloading it from the secure site or from the DRI Project? Because I was able to download from the DRI project ok, but I didn't know if the file I downloaded was the correct one so I just let it go (didn't install it.) If it is the file from the secure site, it would be cool if you could upload it to me That is the only place where I can seem to find it from.

I'd assume it's secure, It was from the drivers section of ATI's page, I wasn't redirected anywhere. I have a Radeon 9000 which also uses that driver, but I've never loaded it b4 with either RH or MDK, so as far as it working properly, I dunno. send me your email if you'd like and I'll send it to you.

Sure. It's: cheesie09@hotmail.com.

However, I *think* I have found away to install the right files from the DRI Project. The driver I have from them I was able to successfully configure the file, but as for it being operational or not yet, I am not sure. The problem I had with the DRI project was I did not have my kernel-sources installed yet, so I installed them and was able to configure the driver. But as for testing it out to see if it works yet or not, I'm at a loss with that But I'm trying to figure it out.
