    Still no-go for HD2600 AGP

    On my Athlon 64X2 system running Fedora 8, this release still gets the "black screen of death" with the Visiontek HD2600 Pro 512MB AGP.

    It works fine with the Sapphire X1950 Pro 512MB AGP, though, and with a Sapphire Radeon 9550SE.

      Not a problem here. On Fedora 8, 64 bits. Neitrher was the previous version.

        Can you post the steps you took to make it work properly and post your xorg.conf please?

          Did you actually build the RPM, or did you just install the driver? Installing works fine, but building the RPM has failed for me on F8 for the past three releases.

            Until just recently, I was running Catalyst 8.3 with a Sapphire Radion 9550 AGP card, on a Fedora 8 x86-64 system. First I installed the Catalyst 8.4 driver, which still worked fine with the 9550. Then I sawpped out that card for the Sapphire X1950 Pro 512MB AGP, and that worked fine too. I didn't change any configuration, and I don't have anything special in the xorg.conf, which can be seen below.

            I have not tried Compiz or any of the other compositing stuff that people seem to routinely have trouble with. I've run a few games, though, and it seems to work fine.

              I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 and didn't like this driver. When I restart X after installing it I had no 3D support, and a reboot later I got black screen of death.
              I read in the unofficial wiki that you can fix it by changing the memory from dedicated to shared, but I'm on a X200M and can't reduce the shared memory because my BIOS don't let that.
              8.3 gives me a broken X.

I suppose that this is progress, of a sort...
                I had the same problem – running Ubuntu Hardy on the same hardware. I solved it by adding the “virtual” workaround which was needed for 8-2 to get OpenGL working.

                Try adding
                Code:
                virtual 1728 1088
                to your xorg.conf. It might work…

                  Hello everybody i have an ATI RADEON HD2600 PRO AGP.
                  And it's working perfectely with compiz!!.
                  Here's how i did it maybe it works for you too:
                  Download the latest driver from ATI (http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html)
                  in terminal:
                  sudo apt-get update
                  (install driver)
                  sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-8-5-x86_64.run
                  sudo aticonfig --initial
                  sudo aticonfig -overlay-type=Xv
                  Then Reboot!
                  And that's it. Now you can go to ATI CAtalyst.
                  And one thing, this didn't work when i started ubuntu whith the 2...17 kernel, it only worked with 2....16 kernel.
                  Before it worked on my ubuntu, i had a lot of drivers and things in my pc, so i reinstalled ubuntu, and then i tried and worked.
                  Hope this works to all of you too.
                  Here's what it shows me when i do "fglrxinfo":
                  display: :0.0 screen: 0
                  OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
                  OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro AGP
                  OpenGL version string: 2.1.7537 Release
                  Bye, Ansraliant
