    @agd5f:
    I have to install first the very latest drm and mesa and after that the driver??

    Also I must uninstall fglrx (/usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh) for the driver to work??

    Ok for mesa my command was good... But for drm and driver is this ok??
    ./configure --prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64
    And last why I cannot change resolutions and I always get 1152x840 whereas I set at xorg.conf 1024x768??

    Please answer me these questions and I will test everything again!!

    CPU:AMD Athlon 64 4800+, VGA:ATi X1250, openSUSE 10,3 64bit and Xorg 7.2->xserver 1.3...

    Thanks

    Jim

      Depends how old the mesa and drm from your distro are. if you are using a fairly recent distro you should be fine. There hasn't been alot of changes in the drm or mesa WRT your chip.

      Yes. You need to remove fglrx and it's associated libraries.

      Looks fine.

      I'm not sure. I'd need to see your log and config. Generally you'll want to use xrandr to change modes.

        @Alex:

        Em... you mean that the uninstall command for fglrx isn't enough??
        Who are the associated libraries??

          It should be enough. fglrx provides it's own version of libGL.

              If you set Option DRI "TRUE" which DRI module should be loaded then??

              Cause I get this in the log:
              LoadModule: "dri"
              (II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules//extensions/libdri.so
              (II) Module dri: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
              compiled for 7.2.0, module version = 1.0.0
              ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.3
              (II) Loading extension XFree86-DRI
              Any ideas? Alex?

                You don't have to load a module. The driver will take care of the dri setup. you should see this line in your log if it was successful:

                (II) RADEON(0): Direct rendering enabled

                  @Alex:
                  I installed now Xorg 7.3 latest build from suse packages, installed Mesa and libdrm also from packages which where created from yesterday's git and devel packages too, in order not to make any compilation-configure mistakes...

                  I installed the 6.8.0 driver from git(cause X contained 6.6.3 version).
                  Works but I still get this in the log:
                  (EE) RADEON(0): [dri] RADEONDRIGetVersion failed to open the DRM
                  [dri] Disabling DRI.
                  I cannot understand why... I do the procedure very carefully, added the Option "DRI" "TRUE" as you told me but still no DRI even to test it!!

                  No luck here...

                    there's some problem with the drm. I can't say what without seeing your log.
