    Default RS485 (Radeon Xpress 1100 IGP) on F9, no 3D, no DRI with ati-6.8.192 (rc2)

    I have RS485 [Radeon Xpress 1100 IGP] integrated chip in my laptop and it has lots of problems with the fglrx driver. In particular fglrx doesn't like the 2.6.25 kernel and the xorg in my F9. SO i decided to swith to the open source ati driver.

    My cards is (from lspci -vvv):
    01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS485 [Radeon Xpress 1100 IGP] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

    I searched through this forum and lots of people claim they've made it work with their ati cards. But I cannot. I used F9 and here what my xorg.conf looks like:
    Section "ServerLayout"
    	Identifier     "Default Layout"
    	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
    	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    	InputDevice    "Synaptics" "CorePointer"
    Section "Files"
    	ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
    	Driver      "kbd"
    	Option	    "XkbModel" "pc105"
    	Option	    "XkbLayout" "de"
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier  "Synaptics"
    	Driver      "synaptics"
    	Option	    "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    	Option	    "Protocol" "auto-dev"
    	Option	    "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier  "Videocard0"
    	Driver      "radeon"
            Option      "AccelMethod" "EXA"
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier "Screen0"
    	Device     "Videocard0"
    	DefaultDepth     24
    	SubSection "Display"
    		Viewport   0 0
    		Depth     24
    Section "Extensions"
    	Option	    "Composite" "Enable"
    I have the following packages installed:
    with the fglrx I got about 1700 FPS. but with the ati-6.8.192 it is only about 250 FPS. with opensuse live it goes to about 550 FPS. the actual results are
    1318 frames in 5.1 seconds = 260.044 FPS
    1221 frames in 5.0 seconds = 242.244 FPS
    1240 frames in 5.0 seconds = 245.745 FPS
    1106 frames in 5.0 seconds = 219.882 FPS
    1215 frames in 5.1 seconds = 239.327 FPS
    1135 frames in 5.0 seconds = 225.165 FPS
    1201 frames in 5.0 seconds = 239.391 FPS
    1208 frames in 5.0 seconds = 239.834 FPS
    1198 frames in 5.0 seconds = 238.908 FPS
    1221 frames in 5.1 seconds = 239.745 FPS
    1208 frames in 5.1 seconds = 238.587 FPS
    XIO:  fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0.0"
          after 27303 requests (26108 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
    Because I cannot attach files here I zipped them and uploaded them on .There you can find the info from xorg.0.log, fglinfo, fglgears, xorg.conf, lspci info and the installed packages.

    Any ideas how to my it work with the foss ati driver?

    Some RS4xx IGP chips used to hang on init with the DRI, so depending on your chip you may have to force the DRI on:
    Option "DRI" "TRUE"
    in the device section of your config. You'll also want to make sure you remove fglrx completely as you may end up with conflicts from the fglrx kernel module and/or libGL. Please use pastebin (e.g., site rather than rapidshare for posting your config and log.
