I'm pretty new at Linux. I just upgraded my machine with an ATI X1650 Pro. I planned to switch over to Linux, but I have had problem after problem with the ATI drivers. I tried Ubuntu Edgy, Feisty Fawn, Sabayon, finally to conclude that it's because of the ATI drivers that I can't get desktop acceleration to work.
Now I also can not run Google Earth or Sketchup, or Cedega, because OpenGL support is not detected.
In the xorg.0.log I get messages that DRI is not working, and I get Mesa driver reported by fglrxinfo.
I'm so frustrated!
Just to be sure: is it really because of the ATI drivers, or am I doing something wrong?
All help appreciated.
