Thread: trying to find XFree86

    Default trying to find XFree86

    Hello

    I am running Opensuse 11.4 and trying to install the ATI graphics driver. System requirements are for XFree86-Mesa_libGL and XFree86-libs.

    I can find XFree86-Mesa_libGL but end up with dependency hell and can't find the libGLU.so1 needed and I can't find XFree86-libs

    Has anyone got any ideas where to find these and any dependencies.

    I highly recommend the script posted (and updated) by forum member please_try_again in this thread:
    Upgrading ATI driver with atiupgrade
    He has updated the script several times, so read to the end.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I went to the post you suggested and read to the end, downloaded the repo and ran it..
    It worked perfectly I did have to do a 2nd reboot to get the mouse pointer to stop jerking but this was the same with the radeon driver so I suspect nothing to do with the install. Desktop effects don't work as yet but I can live with that, bit more digging maybe.

    Thanks again

    i'm unfamiliar with the script you have run, it _may_ obviate the need
    to go further...i don't know, but you might want to take a look at:
    http://tinyurl.com/37v9y7m

    suggest you do more reading than changing until you have made contact
    with please_try_again and get his advice on whether or not what you have
    now is as good as it gets now, or not..

    and read my sig's caveat...before you touch anything!

    After running atiupgrade, the fglrx driver should be already set up - atiupgrade executes aticonfig --initial to add/edit the device section of xorg.conf if needed. You can verify that the package is installed (I know it is but just for the records) and that the fglrx driver is used by checking the output of the following commands (the output in blue below is an example):

    Code:
    # rpm -qa | grep fglrx
    fglrx64_xpic_SUSE114-8.881-1.x86_64
    
    # zypper se fglrx

    The following command provides info about 3D rendering:

    Code:
    # fglrxinfo

    [  2114.819] (II) "glx" will be loaded. This was enabled by default and also specified in the config file.

    [  2114.875] (II) Module glx: vendor="FireGL - AMD Technologies Inc."
    
    You can see more info or set some additional options in catalyst control center:
    Code:
    amdcccle
    To easily switch desktop effects on/off (more exactly compositing) under different DEs, you can try compositor. This script is also included in conkyconf, available in my repo. So, if you have installed my repo already, you can get compositor by installing conkyconf*:

    Code:
    zypper in conkyconf
    It provides /usr/bin/compositor that can be used to enable/disable desktop effects.

    * Or just copy/paste the script. But conkyconf is just a couple files, not a big deal.

    afaik, XFree86 is obsolete and has been replaced with xorg.

    It fglrx is not properly installed, the desktop will run anway (without any warning that something is wrong!), but without 3D and video acceleration (so desktop effects won't run).

    To see it driver is *really* installed, use aticonfig, as please_try_again suggests.
    For example you can try to read GPU temperature (aticonfig --odgt)
    Desktop: Intel Q8300@3,3Ghz, 4GB RAM, Foxconn P35A, Sapphire HD5670, OpenSUSE x64
    Server: Via C3@1.4Ghz, 768MB RAM, 8GB Microdrive + OpenSuSE x86
    and other boxes running Windoze
