ATI Radeon 3200 & Ubuntu 8.0.4 openGL problems
Last weekend i had a major crash so i had to reinstall my whole computer.
Fujitsu siemens amilo
videocard: ATI Radeon 3200 (64mb)
I also updated ubuntu to 8.10 but after that nothing worked anymore (no video, no network)
Yesterday my fgl_glxgears did give my some correct output.
The only problem is that some games give me Segmentation faults.
So i tried running fglrxinfo and here is the output:
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics
OpenGL version string: 2.1.7659 Release
Also glxinfo told me that direct rendering was good.
I thought that maybe downloading latest drivers from ATI should solve this problem.
The ouput after installing latest drivers, removing them and get the latest from envy (8-6 drivers) is this:
name of display: :0.0
Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer (and doesn't even start anymore)
fglrxinfo gives no output.
Any idea what i do wrong and how i could solve this problem?
Maybe good to know that everything worked before the crash.
Thanks in advance
Re: ATI Radeon 3200 & Ubuntu 8.0.4 openGL problems
Problem is solved:
$ sudo apt-get update
- worked fine
$ sudo apt-get install linux-restricted-modules-generic restricted-manager
- didn't worked because there where problems with restricted-manager
$ sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx
$ sudo depmod -a
- forgot this one
After this i also have done this:
aticonfig --initial -f
Don't know which of those 2 things solved the problem but it works again
