    Oops, missed the kernel version in your previous message.

    Try running the legacy script again, I just updated the firegl_public code today but have just reverted it to the previous copy to see if that solves the issue.

    If that doesn't work, can you try updated your kernel (a newer one was released into the updates repo earlier this week)? And are you intentionally running the fc6PAE kernel?

      I was not intentionally running the fc6PAE kernel-- it just sort of jumped on me while I wasn't looking.

      Anyway, I switched to the newest non-PAE kernel in the repo, and built the RPMs. Worked like a charm. Thanks a lot.

        Thread jump : radeon 9250+8.28.8 driver+FC6+dri+dual-head=1 head, no dri

        This post below was in the sticky thread for ATI drivers. I post it here, because it seems a more suitable thread.


        Well... I did "aticonfig --initial --force" as you told me, and it's not working either.
        I tried some more aticonfig debugging, here's what I have when I do a :

        aticonfig --dtop=horizontal --screen-layout=left --effective=now

        Error: Can't change option 'DesktopSetup' for running session.
        aticonfig: checking command options failed.
        and a :

        aticonfig --list-pairmode

        Get pair modes : 0
        and a :

        aticonfig --add-pairmode=12800x10240+12801x10241

        FGLRX_AddPairMode failed when try to add mode : 12800x10240+12801x10241
        Using xorg.conf
        Saved back-up to xorg.conf.fglrx-10
        and this :

        aticonfig --enable-monitor=crt1,tmds2

        ati_dm: FGLRX_EnableDisplays failed when try to enable display: 21.
        Using xorg.conf
        Saved back-up to xorg.conf.fglrx-11
        I forgot to mention that I have the same Xorg.0.log warnings, the same glxinfo and fglrxinfo as previously posted.

        Any idea Michael... or anyone ?

            It looks like the 8.35 firegl_public may the not work with the 8.35 driver... still investigating.

              Hi All!

              I know is my first post, but I have been following all the threads and still can get it completely working.

              I have Dell 600m with an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 for which I am trying to install driver 8.28.8 (which is the last version that with support for my card).

              My kernel info is:
              [[email protected] ~]# rpm -qa kernel*
              kernel-module-ATI-fglrx-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6-8.28.8-1.fc6
              kernel-headers-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6
              kernel-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6
              kernel-devel-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6

              Driver performance ATI > Mesa?

              After using the script and getting the *.rpm files install when I look at fglrxinfo says the vendor is Mesa and not ATI. Why is that and how can I fix it?

              Also I currently have the "Unknown symbol firegl_.." issues reported. Will that be fix when I get the ATI driver install correctly?

              Let me know if you need more info.
              thanks

                The unknown symbol error is likely why you are still getting Mesa, as those unknown symbol errors are due to incompatibility with the Linux 2.6.20 kernel. I can sync the firegl_public code this month with 8.36 and see if it will work with 8.28.8 due to proper 2.6.20 support.
