Seems very strange

What does lsmod | grep -i nvidia gives you ? (as root)

It should say something like
nvidia-agp 7388 1
agpgart 31016 2 nvidia-agp

If it does not then something does not got started right, but since you have done everything right I am not sure.

Since you seem to be no newbie I guess I can asume that your kernel is 2.6 (ofcoz)

Earlier hatman (post #12 in this thread wrote)
I Dunno if it matters but i had agpgart compiled into the kernel instead of as modul (default) because i read about it in another thread.

He has much the same setup like you so maybe that will help.

I am very busy and might not be able to look futher at the problem the next couple of days. And I am not sure if I can help.

Nothing happens when I type lsmod | grep -i nvidia

I am using the official mdk 10.0 so that's kernel 2.6.3 I believe

And I am a total newbie at linux only had mandrake on my machine for less than 48h, I had given a try at mandrake 9.1 a while back but there was no driver for my usb adsl modem back then so I had to stick to windows until now, never managed to get the ATI driver working on 9.1 as well.

"I dunno if it matters but i had agpgart compiled into the kernel instead of as modul (default) because i read about it in another thread. "

Don't have a clue how to do that never compiled anything.

AGP and fglrx is not loaded right then.

I use md 10 CE (not official). I do not know if that should make a difference on newer ATI drivers
and mandrake 10, but I will recommend that you compile your own kernel like I wrote in my first note.

That is what I have done to make it work with - and that was what Erol did...
Everything else seems to be fine ...

(But I will take a look at it if the kernel-compile-trick does not work - but as I said before. I am not sure I can help if that does not work)

Couldn't find the dri mentionned so i got radeon-20040603-linux.i386.tar.bz2

Did an urpmi kernel to install the source

Now I get an error message at make xconfig

HOSTCC scripts/fixdep
*
* Unable to find the QT installation. Please make sure that the
* QT development package is correctly installed and the QTDIR
* environment variable is set to the correct location.
*
make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/.tmp_qtcheck] Error 1
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2

Guess I am missing something
So I tried an urpmi QT but got

The following packages contain qt:
freqtweak
libdbus-qt-1_0
libqt3
libqt3-devel
libqt3-mysql
libqt3-odbc
libqt3-psql
libqtc1
libqtc1-devel
libqtsharp0
libqtsharp0-devel
libqtvision1
libqtvision1-devel
libsmokeqt1
libsmokeqt1-devel
libsoqt20
libsoqt20-devel
libtulip0-qt
libunixODBC2-qt
pinentry-qt
pqt-designer
qt3-common
qt3-example
qtc
qtella
qtparted
qtradio
qtsharp
unixODBC-gui-qt

Should I pick on one them or am I on the wrong tracks?

you have installed libqt3-devel ?

instead of xconfig you can use menuconfig if it still not work....

Thanks Zurg

So i did a urpmi libqt3-devel and said yes to all dependencies

Now when I do "make xconfig" I get this error message

make[1]: `scripts/fixdep' is up to date.
HOSTCXX scripts/kconfig/qconf.o
/bin/sh: line 1: g++: command not found
make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/qconf.o] Error 127
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2

Guess I am missing something else

How come I am missing so many files? Should I have installed Gnome as well on my first install?


make menuconfig is working but there is no character devices there.

Btw at boot the verbose says

Fatal: module fglrx not found

You need to install gcc

search for gcc in you add packages program.

C++Boar

PS Programs in linux often depends on other programs. Therefore I install almost everything when installing. That way I do not have to install it later. The only thing I did not install when installing mandrake was things that would require a 2.4 kernel.

Zupermanz have you tried C++Boar methodon the first page of this thread or Zurg method on the second page?

C++Boar I have reinstalled Mandrake with most packages including gnome and development
Again did a urpmi kernel-source
And this time I didn't get any errors at xconfig
The make is being processed atm
I have a question about lilo.conf what am I suppose to change?

if you type

su
rpm -Uhv --force fglrx-4.3.0-3.9.0.i386.rpm

what does it say ?

If it does not work I would start out from my first note. That worked for me.
Forget about the old files, but get the new onces. (The onces I am talking about is
probably not available now)

try

su
kwrite /etc/lilo.conf

You do not HAVE to change it. But the line with default should be changed, so it refers to your new-build kernel (called something like custom).

default="change_this_string_to_the_label_name_you_want_to_boot"

after that type
lilo to make that changes.

fabre - you need to install the kernel-source. Otherwise you can't build a module to the kernel.
(And you can also not recompile your kernel)
