FC5 2.6.16-1.2111 Livna ATI drivers - stuck on Mesa

Hi,

Has anyone actually got ATI 3D acceleration working in FC5 2.6.16-1.2111? I followed the instructions to install from livna. It all seemed to go ok, I have SElinux disabled, my Xorg.conf points to fglrx.
Xorg.0.log says
Code:
(II) LoadModule: "fglrx"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
(II) Module fglrx: vendor="FireGL - ATI Technologies Inc."
... Then some version info.
When I type fglrxinfo it tells me it is still using Mesa.

I can't use the installer from ATI as it doesn't supprt Xorg7.0.0

Any ideas?
What can I supply from my install to help you to help me?

Did you follow all the instructions at http://www.fedorafaq.org/#radeon especially the part about doing an init 3 and ati-fglrx-config-display enable?

Also - use livna installer (http://rpm.livna.org) don't use the ATI installer - though there is a way to force it to think you are using the old version of Xorg.

Yeah I did use the livna installer. I tried the ATI one but got stuck when I found it would not work on Xorg7.

I did the init 3 ati-fglrx-config-display enable init 5 thing and I am still getting the same thing.
ati-fglrx-config-display did not return any errors.

aticonfig --initial returned the following.
Code:
[root@localhost aparker]# aticonfig --initial
Found fglrx primary device section
Using /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Saved back-up to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.fglrx-3
Here is my Xorg.conf just in case.

glrxinfo still returns this.

Ok, I've been through all of that. I removed and reinstalled kmod-fglrx, ran the ati-fglrx-config-display enable and enabledri. Still Mesa.

I tried aticonfig --initial again and still have Mesa.

i can't find anything else to try from that thread other than forcing the ATI installer to think I have Xorg6.9 which I'm not sure I know how to do anyway.

back up your xorg.conf and try mine jsut to see if you can get the driver up then modify it to your specific needs. Let us know what happens. Also, what card are you using?

Tried you Xorg.conf PSYONIC. Had to comment out the BusID "PCI:1:0:0" line as it could not find my device there.

Still I get Mesa. This is frustrating. Other people seem to be able to get it to work or at least work and crash. I can't even get off this damn mesa.

[edit]
Sorry my card is a 9100 IGP in my Asus M6R notebook.

I found your problem - go to https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206...ux_8.24.8.html (release notes from ATI) and read the caution:
Caution: This software driver provides 2D support only for the ATI Radeon® 9100 IGP and ATI Radeon® 9100 PRO IGP.

Your board is not supported for 3D that is why you can only get 2D with the proprietary drive. Looks like you are stuck.

Sorry I didn't get back to you. Had to run out to a client all of the sudden yesterday. I just looked at you logs today. Sorry I couldn't help more. Wasn't aware your card was only supported up to 2D.
