Using dkms, For your card, use the hd2000 for x1300 xx.

(my last attempt at this was in 2004 with an ati 9800-pro, so I'm a bit rusty)

Like this...

urpmi fglrx and hit tab, to auto complete the line. Now you should get a list of packages that match.

Look for the hd2000 file and select it, then the system should gather a list (much shorter) of dependents for that package.

You'll need them all. Make sure the versions match
1) your current kernel (uname-a)
2) the fglrx version (8.4x.x.x) for x11-server, dkms-fglrx, fglrx-control center,

The listing for "latest" is a tool for letting you know when something has been updated and are not necessary for the system to work. But you can add them too.

But try the last post suggestion first, as it seems that the module built but did not load.

Cheers, Glenn

Talking Paste the whole line into xorg.conf

Your error message....

(EE) AIGLX error: dlsym for __driCreateNewScreen_20050727 failed (/usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so: undefined symbol: __driCreateNewScreen_20050727)
(EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering

That you were getting before, I found in a debian doc..
http://debian.wgdd.de/temp/fglrx_man/fglrx.4x.html

It recomends..
(EE) AIGLX error: dlsym for __driCreateNewScreen_xxx failed (..)
(EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering

<edit>
This error only occurs for X.org(7) versions, which use AIGLX rather than XGL.

Disable AIGLX with

Option "AIGLX" "off"


in Section "ServerFlags" in your xorg.conf(5x)
</edit>

Maybe that's the line I was looking for, na.

Check that document out, it has heaps of options.

When i try to set Compiz for 3D desktop and go to advanced option XGL is selected but it is still slow

Would it be because of AGP ?

And the link with the howto says to use fglrx but i think it changed to aticonfig but it still doesn't work ;(

aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf this usually says nothing to do or if it does something everything goes black...</quote>


Hi this is a long quote but I wanted to point out some thing here.

When you were at this stage, this black screen was probably caused by compiz, or beryl

(whichever one you had installed, My guess, compiz)

by using
accelerated in-direct glx(AIGLX)

in stead of direct glx (GLX)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AIGLX
"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AIGLX#Relationship_to_Xgl

the next section of the wiki is poinient too.

But the "lines" i've mentioned are for ati/compiz and ati/beryl. They are different for compiz and beryl, afaik, or were different in 2004/5.

I still have not found what they actually are, yet!

regards, Glenn

Hi, sorry to extend this post yet again, But I managed to find the text with the "lines" I was looking for in my backups.

I can't give you a reference to the source, but I think it was from LQ pages.

Here Is what I saved....

<quote>
I have an Asus M2A-VM micro-ATX motherboard with onboard Radeon X1200 graphics. Accelerated 3D is working but I cannot get XVideo to work. When I checked /var/log/Xorg*, I found nothing suspicious except the following:

$ grep -i overlay /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(**) fglrx(0): Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
(**) fglrx(0): Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
(WW) fglrx(0): Video Overlay not supported on AVIVO based graphics cards.

Is XVideo supposed to work with my chipset, which the Xorg logs identify as:

fglrx(0): Chipset: "ATI Radeon X1200 Series" (Chipset = 0x791e)

Relevant sections of my xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
Identifier "ATI Radeon X1250"
Driver "fglrx"
Option "UseFBDev" "false"
Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "disable"
Option "XVideo" "enable"
EndSection


Add this line to your Device section:

Option "TexturedVideo" "true"

It's not as good as actual X-Video, but it will allow video playback applications to use Xv.

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, your suggestion only served to confirm my suspicions that XVideo does NOT work on ATI integrated graphics hardware:

$ grep -i textured /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(**) fglrx(0): Option "TexturedVideo" "true"
(WW) fglrx(0): Textured Video is currently not supported on IGP hardware.

Oh, well, I guess that means bye-bye TVTime for now. Until the opensource RadeonHD project matures, my only "option" at the moment is to watch TV using MPlayer.

I hope this helps.

Regards, Glenn
