Default ATI drivers, something missing


I just stopped fighting with the installation of ATI drivers, and it now
reports it's running DRI. But i launch glxgears, and the framerate is
close, even slower than when i had no direct rendering.... even google
earth was faster when glxinfo reported there was no direct rendering.

hope this was as easy as an nvidia card...

I'll paste some useful info for anyone who can have a clue of what's
going on. Thanks in advance.

Default ATI drivers, something missing


The dkms version of the fglrx module shows dri is working, when
glxgears shows it isn't Here's what I did to get my ati radeon
9200se working with dri. Replace kernel version, where appropriate.
Use the installer from https://support.ati.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=894&task=knowledge&folderID=300

Disable dkms...
# service dkms stop
# chkconfig dkms off
Install the ati driver ...
# ./ati-driver-installer-8.24.8-x86.run
gzip the generated module and update the dependencies ...
# gzip /lib/modules/2.6.12-22mdkcustom/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.ko
# depmod
Exit the server, load the fglrx module, and ensure it's loading ok ...
# modprobe fglrx
# lsmod |grep fglrx

Restart the server, and check glxgears.
In /etc/modprobe.preload I have ...
via-agp
agpgart
fglrx

I just tried ati-driver-installer-8.25.18-x86.run, and recreated the
problem. It appears the 8.25 version is setup for Xorg version 7. I'm
running 6.90

I was able to get glxinfo/glxgears working properly again,
by re-installing ati-driver-installer-8.24.8-x86.run, and ensuring
the /usr/X11R6/lib/LibGL.so.1.2 was the version with the size 773890.

Then run depmod, ldconfig, exit X, modprobe -r fglrx, restart X.

Regards, Dave Hodgins

Did you try the ATI driver RPM that you can get from plf? I find that
easier to work with than the ATI installer, and have been using it for
several versions now with no problems (Radeon 9600).

It seems from reading your xorg.conf (please try and shave off comments
so we can focus on what you left in) that you are driving dual
monitors. This is a critical piece of information that you left out for
those people trying to help you; their solutions may work for single
display. I have not seen do***entation from ATI's website that DRI will
work with their builtin Xinerama support. If you would like to try the
solutions posted here, and these guys *are* helpful when it comes to
ATI, I would suggest carving out a new xorg.conf that thinks there is
only one display, and unplugging the other monitor for any
autodetection that you are going to play with.Check those results first
with glxgears, *then* plug in and go dualhead.

that's weird, i'm not running dual monitor... probably i enabled

it to see if it is this my problem.
