Tryed to install new drivers, reinstalled old ones and lost direct rendering...

In hopes of fixing my bug with WoW(and not knowing anything about drivers) some dude told me to install som drivers i had to download from ati.com. I was using fglrx driver i got with livna, and now i understand this was the same driver.

But when i installed the ones from ati i lost xserver(?? gnome/graphical linux and could start gnome atleast). So i had to yum --enablerepo=livna-testing --enablerepo=updates-testing install kmod-fglrx, and now i can log into a graphical linux(gnome).

First thing i did when coming back was trying to start wow, but it could not find 3d acceleration, and this is my output:

[lars@larsey ~]$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.4.2)

[lars@larsey ~]$ glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: No
[lars@larsey ~]$

go to your xorg.conf fine in /etc/X11/xorg.cong and check what driver is being loaded for your card. If it says vesa change to fglrx but make a backup of your original conf file first incase it stops x starting.

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "fglrx"

I got the same behaviour, I upgraded from livna, but I'm sure it's not a problem of livna, it seems that the 3D accel doesn't want to start weird, isn't ?
the xorg.conf is perfect for ATI
if someone finds out, please report it here.

File a bug to ATi, maybe? See if any other ATi users are experiencing the same, especially with Fedora/Red Hat systems
If ain't broken, don't fix it! :eek:
If can be improved, go for it! :cool:

Try to run "ati-fglrx-config-display enable". After that you add "Load "extmod"" in your module section of the xorg.conf. After a restart of the x server my problems with ati vanished.
