7th October 2009, 10:21 AM
I have problem with scree resolution, I can't set up more then 1024x768@ 61Hz.

this is my xorg.conf:
Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "vesa"

When i try install driver for ATI web i can see this error msg:
ATI Technologies Linux Driver Installer/Packager
which: no XFree86 in (/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/lib/qt-3.3/bin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/home/rafal/bin)

Error: ./default_policy.sh does not support version
default:v2:i686:lib::none:; make sure that the version is being
correctly set by --iscurrentdistro

Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.C4mZaP

actualy on system i have instaled this package:

[root@localhost ]# yum list |grep radeon
radeontool.i586 1.5-5.fc11 installed
xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd.i586 1.2.5-2.10.20090714git.fc11 updates
[root@localhost ]#

Thread renamed to reflect the problem.

P.S your card is too old for the ATI/FGLRX driver. ;)

You should be using the "ati" driver (note that this is not the ati propriatary driver - fglrx). Choose "ATI Radeon X1950 and earlier" using system-config-display. You will need to install system-config-display to use it.

I use yum for install system-config-display, and
when I try run display from menu System->administration this doesn't start,
I put root password ..and nothing ...

any idea?

and 2nd question, witch driver download from ati web? because I try 2 difrent driver, with this same result

system-config-display works on my system. Not sure what the problem is in your case.
