Hallo ppl hope you can help me!!!!!!!!
Ok have a big-ish problem. been working on this for weeks now cant sort it.
I am sure we all know how annoying the installation of graphics cards can be well that would be this one.
i have installed and implemented my firegl card but for some unknown reason it runs KDE and Gnome like a bag of dudars me didly (rubish)
i check errors and logs to find a fault and all i get is when i load X:
warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown symbol
fglrx module cant load display PCI: 1:0:0 not found
or something like that and then the fun bit remember X loads and gives me display and i get 3-4000 FPS in glxgears.
this is what i get with fglrx info
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Fire GL X1 Pentium 4 (SSE2) (FireGL) (GNU_ICD)
OpenGL version string: 1.3 (X4.3.0-3.7.6)
or something like that. this would seem to me a bogus error seen as i am runing 2.6.8-rc and i had to modify the count to _count due to kernel page changes.
i also had to modify regparm but no matter if unmodified or modified this error still happens and desktop is terrible performance dam thing.
so can you help me ppl anyone please it got me baffled and my hair is falling out.
oh yea i have run this on redhat 9 then fedora core 2
redhat 9 kernels multitude of options including enabled dri and disabled dri or drm agp in kernel and moduled chipset i have is i7505.
kernel versions for both redhat 9 and core 2 = 2.4.20 -2.4.26 2.6.5 2.6.7 and only in fedora do i run this one due to sata image error i just sorted. 2.6.8rc1
anyone who needs sata support run kernel 2.6.8 and compile with the SCSI libata new driver allocates sata disk as a scsi disk sdx and so on under scsi config settings must i say runs like a rocket get about 60 - 70mb/s using
hdparm -t /dev/sdx xbeing the ending letter of your drive allocation.
