    ATI Driver

    Hi, I'm trying to install a Sapphire X1300 512Mb using Open SuSE 10.1, and the thing did not work. When a see the messages from the log in X I see 'Radeon X1300 detected' but the screen only blink. Using the newest driver downloaded from ati web was the same thing. I follow the installation instruction from ati and forums in suse about this. Results? nothing, zilch, nada!

    With my old Nvidia 5700 system work without problems

    What can I do?. Anyone have same problems?

    Seba

    AMD64 3000+
    1Gb Ram
    Sapphire Radeon X1300 512 Mb
    Audigy Ex Platinum

    damn

    One thing is for sure... the problem is something inside opensuse

    I downloaded the latest driver and the results was the same. I lost my patience and delete opensuse and install vector linux 5.1. VL use xorg 6.8.2 and gcc 3.4 I think... anyway the driver is working!!! opengl still give me troubles but now I can use X!!!

    So, I stay with VL till SuSE be fixed

    This is strange. If you have a backup of your old Xorg.conf from a previous FGLRX installation, you probably can try using that one instead. See what happens with that one...

    Niniendo, I copy the commands that I see in the picture above, but the results are the same. Zero advance so far

    dark star,

    I asked an ATI Linux representative about your SuSE 10.1 + fglrx issue. ATI hasn't been able to reproduce the problem, however, they are in the process of working with Novell on the matter.

    It is interesting that your xorg.conf became like that.

    Perhaps it's the revisions on aticonfig. Perhaps you should manually add the arguments on aticonfig.

    mmm let me tell you something...

    my first try to install the driver was using this: http://linux.wordpress.com/2006/05/1...-installation/

    changing of course the part about ati-driver-installer-8.25.18 instead ati-driver-installer-8.24.8, well after that I give the command

    aticonfig --initial

    I was thinking my xorg.conf see something like this:



    ...but I see this

    Section "Device"

    BusID "5:0:0"
    Driver "fglrx"
    Identifier "Device[0]"
    ...

    and nothing more....

    figures this. The card is Sapphire X1300 not an original ATI X1300, then
    the aticonfig cannot detect it in propper manner so the xorg.conf is not complete. Also the 512mb of ram was 'reduced' to 256mb in x.log

    Maybe that was what happen

    I'll keep trying

    Seba
