    FGLRX driver problem.

    I am running Ubuntu 7.10 and I was having some video problems so I uninstalled the FGLRX driver and then reinstalled it. I ran into some problems during the reinstallation where I lost the X server completely so I installed the driver from the command line. All went well with the install, no errors. And the restricted driver is activated and in use. Now when I run fglrxinfo I get this back:

    Code:
    dnd@dnd-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 7.0.1)
    It appears to be running with the mesa driver. However I had a problem like this before and I couldn't use compiz. I can still use compiz and it actually runs smoother than with the actual fglrx driver.

    Here is my xorg.conf:

    What kernel do you use? And which graphic card?
    Can you please post the results of
    Code:
    $ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep "(WW)\|(FF)"
    and
    Code:
    $ LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose fglrxinfo
    ?

    Re: FGLRX driver problem.

    So I ran the two commands and here is what I got back.

    Code:

    Re: FGLRX driver problem.

    I think I may have found something, however I don't know how to fix it. So I was still trying to fix this problem and I decided to see what other options I could use with the fglrxinfo command. And it came back with this:

    Code:
    dnd@dnd-laptop:~$ fglrxinfo -h
    Usage: fireglinfo [Options]
    Options:
            (no switch):            Print brief adapter info
            -x:                     Print lib strings with extensions
            -n:                     Print normal information
            -t:                     Print wide table
            -v:                     Print verbose information
            -o:                     Print information on overlays
            -display [displayname]: Specify the X display to interogate
            -h: --help:             Print usage information (this screen)

    I noticed the -display option so I tried running it from different displays. I am currently running a single monitor configuration on a laptop. The only reason I tried different displays was the last time I ran fglrxinfo I got this:

    Code:
    dnd@dnd-laptop:~$ fglrxinfo
    display: :3.0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
    OpenGL version string: 1.2 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.1)
    if you look at my original post you will notice it says display 1 instead of 3. So i ran fglrxinfo with display 0 and got this back:

    Code:
    dnd@dnd-laptop:~$ fglrxinfo -display :0
    display: :0.0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon X1200 Series
    OpenGL version string: 2.1.7415 Release
    So now my problem is getting ubuntu to boot using display 0. Can someone please tell me how to fix this.

    Please help!

    Re: FGLRX driver problem.

    I had similar problems on my inspiron 6400.

    It was resolved when I uninstalled xserver-xgl. It was required for Beryl some time back but isn't required for Compiz.
