It looks like your XF86Config file is wrong. You need to uncomment the glx (and dri I think) line in the beginning, and then check the part about your graphics card. You could try creating the file with 'fglrxconfig'.

Also, if you are using x.org, the file is /etc/X11/xorg.conf

I made the stupid mistake of "backing up" a config file to my /root

unfortunately, XFree reads config files in root before the /X11 dirrectory...

i renamed the file in /root and all was well

I did exactly the same mistake! I even filed a bug about it (55540), but the devs didn't seem to care.

hmm, I also have a mobility radeon 9200, yet I get the error:

[fglrx] Maximum main memory to use for locked dma buffers: 373 MBytes.
[fglrx:firegl_init] *ERROR* Device not found

just like the other guy with an incompatible card. Are you sure you have a mobility radeon 9200? what fglrx driver version are you using?

thanks...

hey great docs, thanks alot!

i picked up a 9800 pro today, got it to work using your instructions.

one thing though, i noticed the screen isnt as crisp as my previous card (ati 7200)... is there anything i can tweak to adjust this?

thanks again

why is it that the modules don't load? I followed your process as close as I could, but all four modules you included in your instructions failed to load.

Do you have one of those BusIDs added in your conf file for that device? If not, you should add one or the other, I am not sure which will work. The line should read

Code:
BusID    "PCI:2:0:0"


Or the other one.

Code:

(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:2:0:1) found
(EE) fglrx(0): DRIScreenInit failed!

hmm... stupid me and mounting the /boot directory... i found 3 different kernel images in the mountpoint directory... that means at least 3 times i built my kernel the changes never made it to the running configuration because they never made it to my boot partition... i rebuild my kernel often enough, maybe i should make /boot automount at startup... anyways, i got the new gentoo-dev-sources (test11-r1) so i'm going to try with those.

Thanks for the ideas! (crossing my fingers...)


this i dont understand, dont you use genkernel ? genkernel is always mounting /boot before building the new kernel...
