ATI 9600 Pro problems. Can't Load Driver


Currently my video drivers is configured as the Radeon (fbdev) at 800x600 resolution. I downloaded the rpm from the ATI site and tried to load them but got this error.

Installation failed:
file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.7.0 conflicts with file from package libxfree86-4.3-23mdk

how do I get past this?what do I do so that I can get the correct driver loaded?

I would reccomend installing these drivers outside of X. vi /etc/inittab and change this line ....

x1:4:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc.4

to

x1:3:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc.4

Im running slack but the main thing is change the runlevel to 3 and reboot.

you can also "force the rpm" man rpm and see what it is. rpm --force -ivh blaa maybe cant remember.

Tons of good advice on this site do a search for ATI drivers.

so I need to be in run level 3 to install the driver? I tried to do it from a root level comman line, but I got the same error. I have tried to do many searches on this forum to try to find an answer, but none seem to be the same as mine. I haven't seen anyone with the same error. How do I force install the rpm?

Sorry, but that was of now help. My command line doesn't recognise the command -ivh. I tried urpmi --force filename.rpm but that doesn't seem to work either. I still get the same error.

Installation failed:
file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.7.0 conflicts with file from package libxfree86-4.3-23mdk

I just want it to work.

you must be root to use rpm, you are logged in as root correct? if not than type: " su " ( - the " of course ) than enter your passwd

rpm -ivh --force <package.rpm>

or try,

rpm -uvh --force <package.rpm>

Not to scare you away but this is the easy part of the install


im not sure what you meant here --> " I tried urpmi --force filename.rpm"

I had to force the ATI RPM for my Radeon 9600 Pro.

I'm using MDK 9.2 and the Radeon works great!

Init,
the command that I put in was

urpmi -ivh --force <filename>.rpm

but that didn't work, it got an error saying that it didn't recognize ivh.
I then tried

urpmi --force <filename>.rpm

but i got the same error. I did the command urpmi because I was told that is how you install rpm files. I don't know, I have mandrake, your slackware box must be different.

bgoins, how did you force the driver? How did you get it to work? Please help me.

i usually just run

rpm -i --force fglrx*

I myself never had any issues installing the ATI driver from with in X, btw you need to have your kernel source installed before you will be able to compile the fglrx module.

So if you have not already download the kernel source.. you will need to get it (i think you can get from mandrakes update program)

I have the source. Like I said before, I tried to force the driver, but I got the same error. What does the "-i" do exactly? Sorry I really don't know much about the command line.

I am sorry if I ask stupid questions. doesn't

urpmi --force <filename>.rpm

do the same thing as

rpm -i --force <filename>.rpm

?? And so if already did the first command, and it didn't work, now I need to know what to do to get past the error that I got.

ive never used urpmi, so i am not sure... I though however, that urpmi was a mtheod of installing and getting a file... you should already have the file. but like i said i never used the command so i am not sure.

so you did rpm -i --force <filename>.rpm with the ATI driver off the ATI site and everything went how it should?

there was a little more to it

but that will get you started....

you will then need to run fglrxconfig.
