I've just replaced my long run of NVidia cards with a new Radeon HD card and I'm a bit confused about setting it up in Fedora. I've installed the open source drivers xorg-x11-drv-ati
and gnome 3 seems to be running well enough. So I thought I'd try installing Doom3 (as one of the few Linux 3D games I own) which unfortunately is complicated by the fact it's 32 bit and I'm on a 64 bit system.
I can't figure out how to install the 32 bit version of the ATI drivers xorg-x11-drv-ati.i386 as only the 64 bit version seems to exist?
I got Doom3 installed by installing:
And their dependencies. But running the game failed with a segfault while loading libGL.so.1
. Which I guess is due to the ATI drivers not having the 32 bit installed (as the NVidia equivalent of this provides this library. I tried installing mesa-libGL.i686
as this also provides this library, but Doom3 complains about OpenGL running to slow and exits. Which I'm guessing is due to not having the correct 32 bit ATI drivers installed.
