    Did not work. Ati control centre reports the same MESA and fglrxinfo now gives

    ERROR: DDX driver fingerprint mismatch: got 0x7A3E2CF0, but expected 0x84220BA7
    libGL error: InitDriver failed

      Got it working by uninstalling the preexisting yum version. Then installing the ATI drivers from ATI (8.31.5). At this point i had the firecontrol problem so i installed via yum the kmod and xorg fgrlx did a aticonfig --initial and everythings dandy. Thank you Michael for your time and patience. And many thanks to all!

        Just updated to 8.31... and I lost all my 3D acceleration. Just great. Not only that... my root account seems suddenly haywired now... okay, minor glitches... it's gone now but still no 3d acceleration. Way to go AMD.

          What's your Xorg.0.log show? Did your xorg.conf by chance get altered?

            Okay... I'll calm down.

            I'm going to post my logs in a sec.

              Michael, we could use a file attachment instead of posting log files like this.

                I've tried to downgrade to 8.30.3. I'll see if I can get that one working instead.

                  I don't actively use any AGP machines any longer, but did you encounter those two AGP related errors before with 8.30? I know some others had AGP problems with the 8.31 release so I don't know if it's related. Do you have (/tried altering) any AGP related options in your xorg.conf?

                    The xorg.conf is from my previous driver. I didn't use 8.30.3 before... I think it may have been something like 8.25.

                    Is AMD cutting out AGP? By the way, 8.30.3 doesn't work too.

                      What card are you using? If it's R200 series it was removed in driver 8.28.8.

                      Support for the Radeon 9500 to 9800 remain, along with any of the X series that has AGP versions, but anything up to and including the Radeon 9250 has been removed from the main development branch.

                        Radeon X800 Pro.

                        I've downgraded to 8.25. My 3D acceleration is all lost. I regret ever having to have thought of installing this... this has caused me more problems that I've not asked for.

                        EDIT:
                        Now I can't find the uninstaller for this 8.25. Oh god, what have I done?

                          What distribution are you using? If you aren't using distribution-specific packages, if you extract the driver installer found inside the fglrx-install directory should be something like a fglrx-uninstall.sh.

                          Have you considered using the open-source Radeon drivers or are you in it for performance.

                            I've tried the Livna Yum rpms for 8.26. Nothing. *sigh* I think I'll go look for an R200 gpu next time.

                            EDIT:

                            I appreciate your effort Michael. Here's my specs:

                            Fedora Core 4.
                            ATi Radeon X800 Pro 256
                            P4 3.2 GHz.
                            Asus P4P800-E Deluxe.
                            1 GB RAM

                            Michael, I play on my Linux box. Remember Vdrift?

                              Have you tried generating your own Fedora RPMs instead of using Livna? Or since you're using FC4, even if you run the graphical fglrx installer it should install fine for Stentz.

                              Ah yes, wasn't sure if you had multiple Linux boxes or not

                                I've used the graphical installer. The only packages I saw I could generate where RHEL so I didn't bother. It seems that the livna packages aren't very useful because even after running fglrx-uninstall on 8.25... the Xorg log still insists on using it.

                                Normally, I'd overlap driver installations of ATi cards and they didn't cause any problems. Now it seems that 8.31 has caused some problems and now I can't get anything right.
