    display: :0.0 screen: 0

    However, when I try glxgears, I get a black window (aka no gears) but it prints the frame stats normally on the console. When I switch back to the Mesa software driver glxgears runs without any problem (but, of course, pretty slow). However, the normal desktop (gnome) works fine with the fglrx driver.

    My xorg.conf looks pretty normal:


    (w/o the input section)
    Please help. I haven't got a clue what could cause this problem.

    The AIGLX warning is normal , is glxgears the only problem as it may be a bug in the driver itself

    ATI released fglrx 8.1 today , lets hope it's a good one

    Resolved Issues

    The following section provide a brief description of resolved issues with the latest version of the ATI Catalyst™ Linux software suite. These include:

    * Corruption will no longer be noticed in the lower right corner of the display or on the mouse pointer after the system is running for a long period of time
    * Connecting a display device that supports 1680x1050 to a system running Linux will no longer result in a maximum display resolution of 1280x1024 only being available
    * Custom mode lines in xorg.conf will no longer be ignored by the fglrx driver
    * Suspending to RAM or DISK on kernel version 2.6.23 or later no longer fails

    i just can't get over the fact that the screen goes total black after reboot/X restart.


    ok the --buildpkg Fedora/F7 gives me this yet again

    how long does it usually take for a new driver to land in the livna repo?? I can't wait to try this one out and hopefully leave the open source driver behind...everything else works...I just need my direct rendering with 1650x1050 and I will be a happy camper

    thought so, well i did that, caus running 2 devices tends to get stuff confused, so i deleted it, rebooted and guess what, black screen as it loads the login window.

    i'm starting to believe there is no direct rendering with my x1650

    is there a way to boot the latest kernel in commandline mode??

    well i logged into old kernel, changed the fglrx driver into ati and forced X to find me a new driver, so i'm back @ vesa again, that was a downer

    deleted ati prop driver, i can try the livna again, but that'll prob end up with the same result it did last time. fetching something to drink, cooling down be back in 30 minutes to melt the brain over it again.

    i don't know how this will affect the ati prop driver, do you know?? i finally got something done after a week now, change the Driver section from vesa to radeonhd, without crashing the X-server.

    do you know how i can c what files are in the rpm file? and where it puts it, and if it will be used or overwritten by the ati prop driver??

    copied from other forum, i found on the radeonhd file :

    Index of /repositories/X11:/Drivers:/Video:/radeonhd

    The Driver:
    ftp://ftp.freedesktop.org/pub/indivi...-1.0.0.tar.bz2

    Quote:

    * First released version.
    * Full modesetting driver, capable of driving multiple monitors.
    * Support for VGA, DVI, DMS-59, and laptop panels.
    * Support for monitor hotplug detection, DDC, and dynamic reconfiguration.
    * Full RandR 1.2 compatibility.
    * AtomBIOS support for initialization, data tables, etc.
    * Early RandR 1.3 property support (subject to change).
    * Hardware cursor support.
    * No 2D & 3D acceleration, no XVideo yet. No TV, Component, and HDMI yet.

    This section is taken straight from the radeonhd(4) man page, and should be kept in sync with radeonhd(4) and the src/rhd_id.c file in the source.

    Why is radeonhd so much slower than avivo?

    There may be an old, obsolete line in your xorg.conf file from some fglrx setup a long time ago:

    Option "mtrr" "no" # ancient, obsolete option: REMOVE IT!
    If you have such a line, removing it can speed up radeonhd considerably.
    General note: As a rule, one does not need any xorg.conf file with Xserver 1.4 and up, so it is always a good idea to make sure you really need all the statements in there.
