I'm using a Dell inspiron 1501 intalled with FC6 Kernel -2.6.18-1.2849.fc6.i686
I can't get the 3d hardware accelration to work. I'm very new to linux. so i'll try to explain what i did.
i downloaded from ati.amd.com website the laest drivers for linux 32 bit
i do belive the file is ati-installer-8.32.5-x86.x86_64 it was the only one listed for my radeon 1150 (express 200)
did exaclty as the intall instructions said to do and even built the package for fedora core 6 as it told.
3d stuff is horrible and when i run glxinfo | grep direct this is my output
direct rendering : NO
openGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
which i've read means that the hardware 3D rendering is not on.
I was told this would fix the problem
How to install ATi drivers
Again, your Yum must be configured with the Livna repository, as it's one of the few repositories that provide video driver RPMs especially designed for Fedora Core. To install the ATi drivers’ package, type this command as root:
# yum install xorg-x11-drv-fglrx kmod-fglrx glx-utils
This installs the ATi driver and kernel module.
My question is when i do it conflicks with the already installed ati drivers how do I uninstall them????
Any help would be nice.
Thanks in advance,
