    OpenGL 2.0

    Hi, i have a Radeon x1900xtx

    i was led to believe that the version string is the supported version for OpenGL for my display driver.

    Code:
    $ glxinfo | grep "version string"
    
    server glx version string: 1.2
    client glx version string: 1.4
    OpenGL version string: 1.5 Mesa 7.6
    Am I right in thinking that the installed driver only supports 1.5? I'm a little confused.

    Code:
    glxinfo
    
    
    
    name of display: :0.0
    display: :0  screen: 0
    direct rendering: Yes
    server glx vendor string: SGI
    server glx version string: 1.2

    I'm using the 'xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd' display drivers.
    I switched from the 'xserver-xorg-vdeo-radeon' driver, but the same results.

    according to this my card supports 2.0.


    What am I missing?

    Re: OpenGL 2.0

    Bump,

    ok so I've read that I need the proprietary drivers for this particular problem. according to the ATi website I need:

    Automated installer and Display Drivers for X.Org 6.7, 6.8, 6.9, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, or 7.4
    the out put for X -version is:

    Code:
    X.Org X Server 1.6.4
    Release Date: 2009-9-27
    X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
    Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.24-23-server i686 Ubuntu
    Current Operating System: Linux SPOONS 2.6.31-17-generic #54-Ubuntu SMP Thu Dec 10 16:20:31 UTC 2009 i686
    Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31-17-generic root=UUID=24420e75-5730-4529-8434-f047727be5cd ro quiet splash
    Build Date: 14 November 2009  05:48:26PM
    xorg-server 2:1.6.4-2ubuntu4.1 (buildd@)
    is it version 1.6 or what? which makes no sense at all.



    can someone please help me? this thread is getting kinda lonely. no need to guide me through it, just point me in the right direction please.

    Code:
    apt-cache show xorg
    Should say version 7.4. You can install the ATI driver through System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers

    Re: OpenGL 2.0

    i want to bump this thread, I have tried both the fglrx and 'xserver' drivers from the synaptic.

    i tried the method you mentioned but it just said "no proprietary drivers in use" which makes no sense at all..
