    The fglrx drivers do not support CrossFire nor will they anytime in the near future.

      Thank you for that information. It helps me to make my decision about video cards.

      Just out of curiosity, where do you find the detailed information about the changes in each driver release?

        Problems with ATI 9600

        I firstly installed the drivers from livna through yum with no problems, it was not untill i ran ATI Control that i realized i was still using MESA, i googled my problem and came across your instructions. I followeed them to the letter but no matter what i did it always failed. THe most recent problem was the firecontrol. odly enough without knowing what exactly it was i did that fixed it that is know gone and the ATI control panel works fine detecting my ATI Radeon 9600 without problems but the Vendor for the driver is still Mesa 1.2(1.5 Mesa 6.5.1)

        fglrxinfo give me the following

        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)

        My Xorg reads as follows

        # Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

        Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier "single head configuration"

        EndSection

        Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier "Keyboard0"
        Driver "kbd"

        Option "dpms"
        EndSection

        Section "Device"
        Identifier "Videocard0"
        Driver "fglrx"
        EndSection

        Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device "Videocard0"
        Monitor "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth 24
        SubSection "Display"
        Viewport 0 0
        Depth 24
        Modes "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1280x800" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        EndSection

        Section "Extensions"
        Option "Composite" "Disable"
        EndSection

        Is there a way of completely uninstalling the fglrx drivers from yum and also the onse i installed from your instructions under the hope that a fresh start might work better? Or a way to remove mesa or at least pass over control to ATI instead of MESA?

        I've already looked through the various posts and have found none of the sollutions to suit me.

        Any ideas would be much apreciated.

          yum remove <package names> is able to uninstall the RPMs for you. After that try to run the installer manually.

          Does your X log show any relevant information to this problem?
