Try running "opengl-update xfree", then emerge the drivers, then do "opengl-update ati".

Hi, I´m new with Gentoo. I read this thread entirely.
Here´s my Problem:

I have the same HIS excalibur 9800 that ohoiza posted on Page 2 of this Thread.
The lspci also tells me that I have a 4e49 ChipID.

Is there any other way than ohoiza´s dirty hack?

I´m not new to Linux, I have experiences since SuSE 4.2 but this Radeon really drives me crazy.

PanTast: I'm not sure if there's a better way, but that method should work. You could also ask ATI to add the 4e49 chip ID to the driver, I don't imagine it'd be a great amount of work :) - http://apps.ati.com/linuxDfeedback/

thank you wedge_ that did it

BUT
Back where I began =(

bash-2.05b# ut2003
Couldn't set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual


History:

Exiting due to error

have I missed one or more steps?

I gets these errors:
(EE) fglrx(0): [agp] unable to acquire AGP, error "xf86_ENODEV"
(EE) fglrx(0): cannot init AGP
I have tried with both internal and external agp suport.
I have compiled agp as a module in my kernel, but how do I load a module?
and I saw someone said I had to add fglrx to /etc/modules.autoload ... how do I do this?

Thanks for all help

Wedge: I did that a few days ago. I hope, ati will do a good job.

I think it shouldn´t be too difficult to have a better Linux support than NVidia.

I must admit that I was a little bit suprised that my first attempt to get an accelerated X-Server for a ati Card working failed.
With NVidia Linux drivers one only needed to follow exactly the procedure posted in the readme ....


Please apologise my bad english ...

:-)

The fglrx module has to be loaded before you start X, otherwise 3D acceleration won't work. Look in the /etc/modules.autoload.d/ directory. There should be a few files there named "kernel-2.4", "kernel-2.6" etc. If you're using a 2.4 kernel, open the "kernel-2.4" file and add "fglrx" on a new line at the end of the file. Use the "kernel-2.6" file if you're using a 2.6 kernel. The module will now get loaded on bootup, but to load it manually right now, you can just do "modprobe fglrx". If you have kernel AGP support compiled as a module, you should do "modprobe agpgart" before "modprobe fglrx". You should also add "agpgart" to the kernel-2.x file along with "fglrx".

Is this OLD post true? Are ATI's drivers really going to be the same on different platforms. Are they developing catylyst drivers?

Does anyone know if these drivers will work with a 7000 (r100)? I installed the 2.9 drivers and did a modprobe fglrx and it wouldnt insert it.

In either case, I am having a major problem getting anything to work with dual-heads with my 7000 and xfree-4.3. I either get a garbled picture on both monitors, or one monitor perfect with the other a mirror of the first. This is using the xfree radeon driver. I could care less about 3d performance btw. I just want 2d. :(

If that's the case, should the radeon drivers for just 2D work provided by XFree-4.3 work fine? I cannot get them to work on both monitors for the life of me. (only a mirror effect).

If you check the readme for UT2K3, I'm sure it mentions that those particular messages are harmless. I don't know why you wouldn't be able to change resolutions...do you have more than one listed in your XF86Config? "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" etc

Those are the drivers that are recommended for the older Radeons AFAIK, but I've never touched a multi monitor setup in my life, so I can't really help much :(

I didn't think it would help either, but I can't think of much else :( If you want to make sure, change your config to look like this:
Code:
 Subsection "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes       "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

#        Virtual     1280 1024

First of all thanxs for a grand forum, it has been helpful.

But I do have a huge problem with my radeon card. Its a 9200SE, and my question is, anyone who knows if it is possible to run the ari driver with ths card. Been trying to use the ATI driver V3.2.4.

First I thought that it might be that it has the wrong chip ID or somthing funny, but it seems to be using the right one. lspci identifies it as:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 5964 (rev 01)

Tried to provide both BusID and chipid in Xfree86-4. And I get the following error:


(II) Primary device is: PCI 01:00:0
(WW) fglrx ChipIP 0x5964 in Device section "ATI0" isn't valid for this driver
(EE) No devices detected


So my question then is, is it the sad fact that me buyng the cheepest radeon I could find that is comming back to bite my ass, Or am I missing somthing, or has anyone else had the same problem and figured out a ugly fix. Or a nice clean one, but ill take any solution.

PostPosted: Tue Nov 18, 2003 1:38 am    Post subject: opengl-update pain, lots of pain Reply with quote

Hi everybody

Ive searched the forums about this one but no luck, hopefully you can help. I have a radeon 9600pro, I have installed the ati 3.2.8 drivers
under both 2.4.20 and 2.6.0_beta9 kernels and have experienced the same problem with each.

opengl-update ati seems to run but doesnt appear to actually change opengl to the ati version. The output of fglxinfo remains:
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.3 Mesa 4.0.4
and
fgl_glxgears continues to complain:
Error: couldn't get fbconfig

I have tried:
bash-2.05b# opengl-update xfree && opengl-update ati
as someone suggested but nothing seems to work.

Any ideas what I may have done wrong?

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers:
Code:
emerge -C ati-drivers
opengl-update xfree
emerge ati-drivers
opengl-update ati

Thanks for replying Wedge_ , but I tried that and no luck.
Any other ideas?
In case it helps I am running xfree-4.3.0-r3 and my system is pretty much "emerged" up to date with the stable tree (except for the 2.6 kernel of course). X is otherwise running fine.

edit: Problem solved. I rebooted between installing the drivers and running opengl-update ati and that seemed to do it.

well, kde is (and was) running fine, but the 3d apps are very slow (opengl)

I have a radeon 8500 pro and i followed the guide, but it doesn't seem to work.
I emerged the ati-drivers, got all the kernel options right (faik),
i ran fglrxconfig for and XF86Config-4 file (and renamed it to XF86Config).
I tried opengl-update ati and it says "ok" but i don't seem to get more than 1/2 FPS in tuxracer (the menu) :|

so, i get no errors or warnings, at least not that i know of. Could you guys give me a hint where to look (what logfiles) etc.

Oh yeah, when running fglrxinfo i get this:

Code:
root@localheaven jesus # fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.3 Mesa 4.0.4


i am pretty new at this but i really wanna make it work.

tnx for reading the whole post :)

OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.3 Mesa 4.0.4
and
fgl_glxgears continues to complain:
Error: couldn't get fbconfig

I have tried:
bash-2.05b# opengl-update xfree && opengl-update ati
as someone suggested but nothing seems to work.

Any ideas what I may have done wrong?


I'm getting this also. Anybody have any ideas?

first: great HowTo!!! :D

But I've a problem. I have an Hercules ATI Radeon 8500 All-In-Wonder DV
I merged ati-drivers 3.2.8 and all works fine. I can load the ati-module into the kernel. no errormessage.
I can also start X with "startx". But when I start KDE, then it doesn't work. KDE seems to start. I can see the cursor. But then the screen turns black und KDE seems to restart itself. It does this for about 3 times. Then it quits.
From /var/log/daemon.log :

Code:

Nov 26 16:35:19 alina kdm[1247]: Greeter exited unexpectedly
Nov 26 16:35:19 alina kdm[1247]: Abnormal helper termination, code 0, signal 5
Nov 26 16:35:22 alina kdm[1271]: Greeter exited unexpectedly
Nov 26 16:35:22 alina kdm[1271]: Abnormal helper termination, code 0, signal 5
Nov 26 16:35:25 alina kdm[1281]: Greeter exited unexpectedly
Nov 26 16:35:25 alina kdm[1281]: Abnormal helper termination, code 0, signal 5
Nov 26 16:35:28 alina kdm[1290]: Greeter exited unexpectedly
Nov 26 16:35:28 alina kdm[1290]: Abnormal helper termination, code 0, signal 5
Nov 26 16:35:28 alina kdm[1244]: Display :0 is being disabled (restarting too fast)


When I use the radeon.o module instead of the fglrx.so module, KDE works fine! Does anyone have idea, what's wrong?

cya,
