    Re: Howto: ATI Mobility Beryl/XGL FGLRX in Edgy

    I am also having trouble, running a Radeon Mobility 9200. What do I need to uninstall in order to start from scratch? (xorg-driver-fglrx?) I've tried the tutorial but I'm afraid previous attempts might be interfering.

    Thanks for a tutorial, I hope it works for me eventually...

    Re: Howto: ATI Mobility Beryl/XGL FGLRX in Edgy

    Well, I totally reinstalled tonight and followed the tutorial. The install didn't generate any errors, but when I boot up, the screen is 'messed up'. Pretty much random colors. I can type my username and pass and hear the sounds letting me know the login was successful. What's the next step?

    EDIT: I've gotten the screen back after running 'dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg'. I chose the 'ati' driver at the beginning of this process. However, my output of fglrxinfo is as follows:

    Code:
    display: :0.0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R200 20060602 AGP 1x TCL
    OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.3 Mesa 6.5.1)
    Output of 'modprobe fglrx':

    Code:
    modprobe fglrx
    I think I probably messed that up by running dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg.

    Output of lsmod | grep fglrx: Nothing

    Output of lsmod | grep radeon:
    Code:
    radeon                118816  2 
    drm                    74644  3 radeon
    I am going to run dpkg-reconfigure again looking for fglrx now.

    EDIT2: Done, and anytime I choose fglrx my screen is always "messed up" on boot.

    I tried lowering the resolution, and could see a 'double image'. Messed up, but i could make out the text. I ran fglxinfo and it came back MESA...

    The only thing I wasn't sure of in the dpkg-reconfigure was the video card BUS ID.

    Please help me configure these ATI drivers. They are killing me.

    PS - My ultimate goal is really to install beryl, so if there is a way to do that without FGLRX, I'll go for it.

    if you do fglrxinfo with beryl running, what do you get?

    Code:
    matteo@burnt:~$ fglrxinfo 
    display: :0.0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: MOBILITY RADEON X700 Generic
    OpenGL version string: 2.0.6119 (8.30.3)
    I see that you're using a older version of fglrx, you should try the latest one, they're improving the driver even if very slowly

    mplayer works fine here using Xv, but that's a very recent fix in fglrx, I reccomend you to upgrade

    I can't run 3d apps properly (see screenshot of tremulous), but in the past they didn't run at all, I guess it still depends on fglrx.

    51mmz0rz: Check "/etc/modules" and make sure that "radeon" is not listed. Now make sure that you have fglrx in your xorg.conf. Then go to a terminal and do the "lsmod | grep radeon". If radeon shows up, run:
    Code:
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
    $ sudo rmmod radeon
    $ sudo modprobe fglrx
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
    For people with:
    dlopen of /usr/lib/dri/on_igp9x00_we_do_not_support_dri.so failed

    I have no clue what this is... sorry. Ask google.


    Zasf: I know I am running an "old" version. This is because I don't want to compile my own module from ati.com, I want to use edgy's repos because it is easier. I can get mplayer to work with Xv, but when I fullscreen it, it is way too slow to watch.
    Knowledge is half the battle.
    The other half is violence!

    Re: Howto: ATI Mobility Beryl/XGL FGLRX in Edgy

    I installed the last version of the ATI driver to see if there was the problem but not. I'm still having direct rendering but now I have other error:

    Code:
    /etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...
    _XSERVTransSocketUNIXCreateListener: ...SocketCreateListener() failed
    _XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: server already running
    
    Fatal server error:
    Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X server isn't already running
    
    (gnome-session:14744): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
    In response to Paerez I can say that install ATI's driver is very easy. Just download the installer, select unknown X, then automatic install (or something like that) and restart. That's all...

    The guide worked well for me but whenever I start typing text into a window (newsgroups, web-based email, open office) I get random crashes that send me back to the login screen. Any ideas?
    Code:
    fglrxinfo:
    display: :0.0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9800 Pro Generic
    OpenGL version string: 2.0.6119 (8.30.3)

    Hey...I followed the first FGLRX part of your thread (verbatim) and now my computer is running at 100% with absolutely no trace of what's using it. Top and System Manager show nothing.

    I'm almost positive it has something to do with the part where you copy and remove the modules. I didn't really understand this step and copied everything verbatim...it resulted in no errors. After restarting I now have this. I even tried installing the original module again to no avail. My computer is completely screwed now (and will probably melt itself). How do I undo the copy/remove step? I'm guessing there's still this module sitting around in /misc but I don't know how to tackle the problem...thanks.
