    Ati x1400 Hardy Upgrade, Mesa driver being used

    I have enabled the Compiz-Fuzion stuff by changing the xorg.conf where it says composite to "disabled" and every thing seems to be working like it should, but when i type fglrxinfo i get mesa drivers
    Code:
    mike@mikelaptop:~$ fglrxinfo
    display: :1.0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
    OpenGL version string: 1.2 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.3)
    I have ran aticonfig as well as run the envy installer but the drivers don't seem to go. I have never been able to repair the ati drivers for some reason, i have always just had to reinstall everything if the ati drivers are screwed up

    Can you post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf??

    Re: Ati x1400 Hardy Upgrade, Mesa driver being used

    I have the same problem, and I also noticed that the ATI driver is gone from the restricted drivers window. And when I move windows (with the wobbly windows effect enabled), and rotate the desktop cube, it lags really bad.

    Fglerxinfo gives me:
    thomas@thomas-laptop:~$ fglrxinfo
    display: :1.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
    OpenGL version string: 1.2 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.3)

    When I want it to say ATI.

    Same problem with the same GC (X1400), solved with :

    sudo apt-get remove xserver-xgl

    If it doesn't work try this :
    sudo apt-get install linux-restricted-modules-$(uname -r)

    Something in the 2.6.24-17 kernel update apparently borked up fglrx. Try to boot 2.6.24-16 (press Escape in the grub boot prompt, then choose 2.6.24-16-generic).

    Re: Ati x1400 Hardy Upgrade, Mesa driver being used

    I have a Radeon X1950 Pro and am having this problem as well. I've tried disabling/enabling the ATi restricted drivers and a couple of other things, but to no avail

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Everyone,

    I have ATI X1550 and I also run into this problem yesterday after I did online upgrade from Ubuntu 7.10 to Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. First I had to learn how to recover from "White Screen of Death". After that I could not re-install binary file form ATI. After long hours last night I finally able to solve my problem. I did manual installation described here:
    http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu..._Manual_Method
    I hope this page will save sometime to someone.

    Good Luck.

    PS. If anyone from ATI or close to ATI reads this. Please release the source of the driver or at the least open the chipset specs so that we can have own driver. I have been loyal customer of ATI, but next time I will buy other video card if there is no open source driver with full support for ATI hardware.
