    Was there anything in your X log that was an error (EE)? Or anything else relevant in your log?

      OK. I tried rebooting rather than just ctrl-alt-bs, and...

      grepping for EE and WW in /var/log/Xorg.log...

      (WW) fglrx(0): board is an unknown third party board, chipset is supported
      (WW) fglrx(0): Option "VendorName" is not used
      (WW) fglrx(0): Option "ModelName" is not used
      (EE) AIGLX error: dlsym for __driCreateNewScreen_20050727 failed (/usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so: undefined symbol: __driCreateNewScreen_20050727)
      (EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
      (WW) <default pointer>: No Device specified, looking for one...

      Looks like the some of the problem's gone away. Now what's the solution for the rest

      I am just trying to enable the Desktop Effects...

      I used Michaels script starting...

      # Purpose: Allow 8.29.6 drivers to run on Fedora Core 6
      # Run at your own risk
      # For full usage see: http://www.phoronix.com/redblog/inde...=blog&i=NTU1MA

      To convert 8.29.6, and this is a clean install - from a fc6 dvd downloaded from torrent yesterday.

        sholdowa,

        The fglrx drivers do not currently support AIGLX due to the lack of the X tfp extension. The only work-around would be to use the open-source Radeon drivers, if you have a supported GPU (R200 / R300).

          Hello, since the game ET was mentioned in this thread, I decided to ask help here. Can you have a look at the thread at http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showpos...4&postcount=12. ET stopped working for me. I tried reinstalling ET, but it made no difference. Any ideas? I'm new to this forum, so if there is a better place to ask this, please forward me.

            Are any other games working or had you only tested ET?

            Try reinstalling the fglrx drivers to see if it fixes your problem. What GPU are you using?

              ET is the only one I've tried. Do any pre-installed games count, that come with FC6? If so, which one should I test? I'll try driver re-install.

                Shipping with FC6 is GNOME games, which don't really count. You could install SuperTux or Sauerbraten or another open-source game.

                  Solved: reinstalling the driver resulted in working ET. Thanks
