    Default Problems with ATI Radeon 9850 and fglrx drivers

    Hi all,

    I'm having trouble getting fglrx working with my graphics card. The driver appears to be installed OK

    Code:
    [nathan@ebisu ~] lsmod | grep -i fgl
    fglrx                2350824  26
    ...but it doesn't seem to actually work

    Code:
    [nathan@ebisu ~] glxgears
    Segmentation fault

    Sorry if I've missed anything.

    === Comments

    I did some Googling, of course, and found a lot of stuff about mtrr mapping problems, but none of them described my symptoms. It looks from /proc/mtrr as though the mtrr is being mapped properly (this is a 512MB card), but it's just not working for whatever reason.

    If the solution is to use some other driver (radeonhd?) then so be it, but I'd like to understand why this one isn't working.

    Help greatly appreciated!
    Thanks,
    Nathan

    Is 3D checked in Yast - Hardware - graphics and Monitor?

    Also

    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    3d acceleration is not checked and is greyed out.

    I would guess that this is a driver problem and thus unrelated to my x.org settings, but here they are:

    Code:

    Did you install the driver the easy way(one click install) or the "hard" way (from ati). I have found that setting up the driver the hard way is actually quite easy and saves you a lot of problems. Not to mention that you get newer drivers. I noticed that your xorg.conf is not optimized...you don't want 3d effects? If then the radeon driver is excellent.

    See this part, shows you still using vesa:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
            Identifier  "Device[0]"
            Driver      "fbdev"
            VendorName  "VESA"
            BoardName   "Framebuffer Graphics"
    EndSection

    • When done with installation, you have to configure graphic.
      To do that log out. When new login appear switch to the terminal by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F1, login as root user (you know your root password - right), and type:

    Code:
    init 3
    Code:
    SaX2 -r -m 0=fglrx
    Note that above is 0=zero, not letter O .
    This will configure X to use the ATI driver.

    • Restart X window manager with command: init 5

    All the above is from here: ATI - openSUSE

    I tried that and SaX2 appears to just hang:

    Code:
    [root@ebisu /home/nathan] SaX2 -r -m 0=fglrx
    SaX: initializing please wait...
    SaX: your current configuration will not be read in
    It doesn't do anything else after that. I've had it sitting there for about 15 minutes, which is far longer than it should take to do anything, ever.

    I suspect you may have the wrong driver installed. ATI stopped supporting some of the older cards in it's latest drivers, and I think the 8xxx/9xxx series support was nixed.

    I would go to ATI's web site and download the drivers from there. Follow their instructions to build your own RPM, install it and see if that works.
