  • AMD 8.35.5 and Radeon 9550... details

    Here are the steps I've done so far:

    1) I updated the kernel to the latest: 2.6.20-1.2933.fc6

    2) Rebooted the system.

    3) Downloaded the ati-installer, ran it with --buildpkg Fedora/FC6, and it built the rpms no problem.

    4) ran: 'rpm -ivh *.rpm', with no problems (no errors at all)

    5) add the appropriate 'Composite' 'False' and 'AIGLX' 'False' to my xorg.conf.

    (IGNORE step #6 if you're reading this)
    6) ran 'aticonfig --initial', and got the following output:

    "Found fglrx primary device section. Nothing to do, terminating."

    This is the same message even if I supply the path to the xorg.conf file manually.

    7) reboot the computer

    When installing the RPMs it automatically runs aticonfig --initial.

    What happens when you reboot?

      After I rebooted, and ran fglrxinfo, I get the normal 'Mesa' information. So obviously it didn't work.

      Code:
      Xlib:  extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
      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 6.5.1)

            Does it work if you turn off Xinerama?

              Umm... YES. It does!!

              Will I not be able to get it working with Xinerama? I really need the spanning desktops.

                  check out Big Desktop in amdcccle or aticonfig. Big Desktop should work out.

                    Ok... just a note to whoever may read this. When it says to reboot in the amdcccle - make sure you do - because what you see when you change the settings isn't what you will actually get after rebooting.

                    In other words.. I tried the Big Desktop over and over - and it would never look right. But when I rebooted... it worked fine.

                    I'm so glad to have gotten this working! Many thanks to Michael for his time and patience!
