FC3 ATI radeon 9700 pro driver install issue


Recommended Posts

Basically I follow the instructions from ATI's website and this is what happens when I run the RPM.

 

[root@amorphous-codeworks modern]# rpm -Uh --force fglrx64_6_8_0-9.8.25-1.x86_64.rpm

*** Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.

*** Warning ***

The QT based control panel application did not load in any version.

===

ATI display drivers successfully installed

please run 'fglrxconfig' now

===

 

 

After I run fglrxconfig and then run fglrxinfo and I get the following:

 

[root@amorphous-codeworks bin]# ./fglrxinfo

Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".

display: :0.0 screen: 0

OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org

OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect

OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.1)

 

Basically I don't think the drivers installed but then I don't know why. Perhaps someone can make sense out of the above information. Doesn't look like anything changed in xorg.conf either so I guess I am sort of lost.

Just figured I would update this post. I replaced this card with a Nvidia 6600GT and drivers were much easier to install. In fact Nvidia's website had very good instructions. Rwo
