Thread: ATI fglrx 8.31.5 Display Drivers

  1. #1

    Default ATI fglrx 8.31.5 Display Drivers

    No new features are in this release, but there is a chunk of resolved issues:

    # Setting the display resolution to 400x300 or less no longer results in the mouse pointer not being able to move across the entire desktop. Further details can be found in topic number 733-23732
    # The graphics driver no longer hangs the system shortly after the X Server is started on Red Hat enterprise Linux 3 system running Uniprocessor kernels. Further details can be found in topic number 733-23731
    # Playing a media file under any distribution with X Server 6.9 or greater no longer results in a brief pause or video tearing when resizing the video window or running the mouse pointer over the video player window. Further details can be found in topic number 733-23730
    # Using aticonfig to set the TV format to PAL-COMB-N no longer fails to update the X Server configuration file. Further details can be found in topic number 733-23729
    Release Notes: https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206...ux_8.31.5.html (Note they are now the AMD Proprietary Display Drivers)

    I've succesfullyy installed 8.29.6 drivers with you script on my FC6;

    Now I'm trying to update to 8.31.5 but I receive some errors.

    Hi,
    with ./ati-831-driver-name.run --buildpkg Fedora/FC6 I've built rpms.
    After I've installed *.rpm without errors.
    I've rebooted the pc, then I've run aticonfig --initial without errors; but direct rendering is disabled.

    Code:
    [root@hal9000 X11]# fglrxinfo

    Oops I just noticed from your above xorg.conf that it doesn't look like Composite is disabled. Here is a working conf from a T60.

    But with

    Code:
    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "disable"
    EndSection
    I can't run AIGLX...It's true?

    The fglrx drivers do not support AIGLX.

  10. #10

    Default
