    Default FC6 x64 ati 9600 M10 no luck

    Machine is amd64 2GB Ram, ATI 9600 M (64Mb ) , FC 6

    I have done what has been described and get the buildpkg Fedora/FC6 to work and get to install the drivers but whatever I do the dam thing still references the Mesa gl libs so I get no direct rendering .
    can't locate anything with Mesa/mesa in it . rpm -qa |grep Mesa gives me nothing. Even doing a yum install kmod-fglrx from livna after uninstalling the control panel shows the dam mesa drivers. Are the drivers in the kernel or something? Were else can the be buried .

    Here is the output from glxinfo
    glxinfo

    What does your /var/log/X.0.lorg show when installing fglrx and trying to start X with the fglrx drivers?

    Provide more information and I (and other forum users) would be more than happy to assist.

    Edit: Also, the R300 Mesa drivers should support your 9600 if you wanted to use those, unless you are looking for something that is specifc to the fglrx drivers.

    Default /dev/dri/card0 no such device

    Here is the important part . I feel like the fedora installer messed up when installing FC6 because X server wouldn't even start after a fresh install( blank login screen after graphical boot) . I had to mod the xorg.conf just to get xserver to run, I feel like FC6 installer missed something. Anyway to force fedora to probe for video cards all over . I don't think reinstall will work , it will just mess up again. ( I did three fresh installs thinking I did something wrong but there is bug in bugzilla for it) . Are the drivers still screwed up or something . Mainly I want to have direct rendering enabled.
    Thanks,
    Ben

    As root try running

    aticonfig --initial

    and then rebooting again, your X config might be messed up.

    Default Working sorta Blank screen

    Ok I have the fglrx module loading and all but when I do the disable extensions part I get a blank screen when xserver starts up . Check the log file no errors at all. Says everything is good to go .

    Is anything appended to the log when you get a blank screen? What happens when you try to startx manually?

    Default Modlines maybe

    I think it is related to mode lines . I googled and found similar problems on other ati cards where the fglrx driver bombs out xserver. IE the display can't handle the output thus you get a blank screen . I think I need to mod the xorg.conf file to hanve the proper mode lines. If you can point me to any other post or something that deals with the mode lines that would help . Thanks,
    Ben

    Default FC6 Fedora 6 2.6.18-1 kernel linux blank black screen

    For those experiencing a blank login screen in FC6 or some other distro with ati fglrx drivers. If ssh into the machine and cpu is usage of Xorg is high or 98% or something like that there is bug in the kernel or drivers but never fear here is fix that work for me . The chipset is ATI 9600 M10 on a laptop. I had to mod the xorg config file . I install the fglrx from livna using yum install fglrx and installed the kernel module from the installer , I used a rpm produced by the installer for that. This has been noted by others a kernel bug,but I don't know exactly but here is my xorg.conf file . As long as someone has the drivers installed correctly from linva or ati installer and is experiencing blank log in screen with kernel 2.6.18-1.2798 / .fc6 2.6.18-1 . Here is two method they can try . Adjusting the AGP aperture size in their bios ( I cannot do it on my machine ) or moding the xorg config file as shown. The main part is device section . Turning the one option off ie comment it out reproduces the error. There is might be a way to ajust AGP settings from Xorg config file but I don't have time for that right now . I am working and everything is good to go for now. If it still loads the mesa drivers for opengl try looking at your Xorg.0.log file by doing
    cat /var/log/X11.0.log |grep EE
    if a lib file is missing try doing a locate on the lib file and making a symbolic link .

    I had to add the following symbolic link ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/dri/fglrx_dri.so /usr/lib64/dri/
