Ati on my Knoppix

Hello all

I have just stuck Knoppix on my main box seeming as I like it so much...

anyways, running an Amd 2800+ 640MB Ram, 1000MB swap and an Ati 9200SE.

Anyways, following varioius google advice I got this far:

converted the driver from rpm to deb
turned init to lev 3
dpkg -i --force-overwrite /home/xxx/fglrx.....
 cd .lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/sh ./
 cd/lib/modules/fglrx/sh ./
All went without a hitch...

and followed the info, anything I didnt know I left default.

Then rebooted. Not necessary but I wanted to

Logged on, started X and did fglrxinfo. It still says its using Mesa!! I also copied the CF86Config-4 file that fglrxConfig made into my /etc/X11 dir.

I'm out ideas? Any help?

Getting the Radeon 9200 SE to work under linux is quite a challenge. Please post extended output of glxinfo and related X config file information, and I'll try to help you get it working.
