3d accelleration


hi...

i need some help because i encountered some problems enabling 3d accelleration following
the unofficial fedora faq...http://www.fedorafaq.org/#radeon...i tried to install it but the rpm doesn't work...the patch doesn't function obviously...so i can't do $ fgl_glxgears...please have anybody here enabled 3d accelleration? I run fedora core 2 with kernel 2.6.6-1.435 and ati radeon 9600 pro....have a nice day...

This is a hardware, not software question as it's your ati radeon graphics card which does the 3D acceleration. I can't help you as I have an Nvidia card and hence no experience of what to do to get an ati card working. You should word the title of your thread so that it attracts the attention of people who do have ati cards, and perhaps you should post it in the hardware forum?

Technically it could be both. He is setting up the software side of the hardware, hence it is software.

i know that to enable it i have to install, patch and configure some modules...it is software. anybody here knows how to?

anyway...i follow istructions on the site http://www.fedorafaq.org/#radeon so i download drivers and patch. in first i 'm not sure of my xfree version because check.sh doesn't function so i download drivers for xfree 4.3...i run the rpm...this is the message who it writes to me...
Code:
[root@localhost linux]# rpm -Uvh --force fglrx-4.3.0-*.i386.rpm

Afterwards go to /lib/modules/fglrx and run './make_install.sh'

As of now you can still run your XServer in 2D, but hardware acclerated

so i think it doesn't work..(how much quick is this boy!:--)
i try anyway to make it working installing the patch...
Code:
[root@localhost linux]# cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/
[root@localhost build_mod]# gunzip -c /tmp/fglrx-fedora.patch.gz | patch -p1
patching file 2.6.x/Makefile
patching file make.sh
