ATI driver + FC3 xorg, a hint...

Hello,

In order to get Your ATI accelerated I recommend to:
rpm -Uvh --allfiles --oldpackage --replacefiles --replacepkgs --repackage <Xorg.6.7>.rpm
or simply
rpm -Uvh --allfiles --force --repackage <Xorg.6.7>.rpm

where <Xorg.6.7>.rpm are all Xorg.6.7 from FC2 (updates).

The only thing I have resigned from was openmotif-devel-2.2.3-6.i386 (and of course xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-devel-6.8.1-12.i386)

Instalation/compilation of (fglrx-4.3.0-3.14.6.i386.rpm) the module goes smooth... acceleration ok. (My openGL stuff compiles and runs very well).

Until ATI will produce a new driver its fine... (Your Xorg.6.8 packages (--repackage switch) You'll most probably find (depends on Your custom rpm config) in default dir: /var/spool/repackage

I hope this will help, someone...

My best,
loop

PS Personaly I think moving to 6.8 was made to early...

I have installed FC3 just today...
Compiled the Ati module... but...
It (the Xsrv) was working until any proc would call any of dri calls/checks (even the fglrxinfo would crash the X).
A workaround was to disable dri in the xorg.conf but You pay the price of no direct when oGL-ing...
As I need oGL accelerated I've step back with the Xorg to 6.7.
So now it's rather FC3 +X6.7 +ATIdri(on Radeon 9700Mobility).

After searching through multiple forums and finding it "not possible" to have fglrx working(fully) in xorg 6.8 I took some time to see why it worked in Gentoo.
Every time I'd log in my X session would close(and restart due to runlevel 5), and /var/log/messages would print error messages:
Nov 11 18:09:37 duality kernel: allocation failed: out of vmalloc space - use vmalloc=<size> to increase size.
Seems like the finger pointing goes to xorg 6.8 in combination with xscreensaver. After disabling xscreensaver from my kde autostart everything works just fine. No magic involved here
My version of fglrx is 3.14.6, and yes, this is FC3.

Could you please make a work-around and put it in How-To? Thanks

i dont think u can have xorg 6.8 ati drivers and direct rendering enabled for it to all work smoothly, the best suggestion ive seen so far apart from staying with fc2 and waiting for ati's new drivers late nov early dec is to do what loop suggested.
However i could be wrong.

I realize now that my post was in the wrong secion, so I removed it from here.
The initial message was about 3d acceleration, and my post was(mainly) in the interest of getting dualhead working.
Sorry if I got your hopes up

i was just wanted to ask if U ever saw this message...

No matching visual for __GLcontextMode with visual class = -1 (-1), nplanes = 0

i guess not..
that would be a good news, though... if everything went so nice... too bad...
my best,
m.

I actually didn't understand what you guys say.
I have radeon+xorg 6.8 and my FC3 fresh install has perfect 3D accelleration

I'm curious. Run GLXGEARS and tell us your FPS.

it is around 240-260.
it was 220 fps when I used Fc2 with external drivers.
without 3d acceleration it was about 40-60.

same here, in fedora 2 my glxgears ranged from 60 to 200 fps but it made my processor usage step up to 1.79 and 100% usage on my lapton (radeon mobility u1). In fc3 it now shows 197-220 while my cpu frequency stays at 530mhz and about zero % usage. Tux racer works great too. Any good 3d games I can try? counter strike?
