  • Can't get Radeon 7500 mobility to work on Thinkpad R51

    Hello,

    I'm using an IBM Thinkpad R51 with an ATI Radeon 7500 mobility (rv200) but I cannot get the Radeon driver to work with X-Windows. I'm using Vector 6.0 (based on Slackware 12) Linux distro. Information on the laptop can be seen at, http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:R51

    Any help would be greatly appreciated:

    Here is a warning I get in my Xorg.0.log file in /var/log.

    Code:
    II) LoadModule: "fgl.renamed.libdri"
    (WW) Warning, couldn't open module fgl.renamed.libdri
    (II) UnloadModule: "fgl.renamed.libdri"
    (EE) Failed to load module "fgl.renamed.libdri" (module does not exist, 0)
    And here is an error I receive at the end of the log:

    Code:
    drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
    drmOpenDevice: Open failed

    I can post the output of my lspci and the entire xorg.0.log or xorg.conf files if need be.
