I decided to try Debian Etch. Everything loaded fine, but when I restarted the computer, the X wouldn't start. I wasn't really that surprised because FC6 wouldn't start X either. I was able to edit the xorg.conf and gave it the "radeon" driver, then grabbed the proprietary drivers from Livna. I'm not quite sure how to accomplish this from a command line in Debian. Any suggestions? Alternately, I guess I could download the drivers from another computer and burn them to a CD to use from a command line in Debian.
I am not much of a Debian user myself, but what happens if you become root and then vim /etc/X11/xorg.conf and update it? Or from any third party Debian repositories tapping into already built fglrx packages.
Michael, I have created torrents with working RPMS (For FC6) and Working Extracted installation files. I have created these for both 8.30.3 and 8.29.6 - Would it be ok for me to post these somewhere appropriate on your forum?
The RPMS are built for my Kernel 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 (32Bit). I have also repaired the extracted installation files, for those who keep getting file not found errors etc, and can't for reasons beyond our control, compile source code etc.
Alot of people downloading, not so many seeding. For both 8.29.6 and 8.30.3 I compiled the control panel interface, and tested it on a few other distros without any problems (debian, mandriva, suse and FC6). I ammended the ati-install.sh file for 8.29.6, so that people with X.Org 7.1.X wouldn't get the file not found errors. I also ammeded the directory structure for 8.30.3.
