    Thumbs up new ati 8.39.4 rpms

    there are new rpms on www.livna.org worth looking at. just got mine just. i didnot get the same errors, in fact, no errors. after install, logged out of session, logged back in, screen reconfig itself. voila! full screen and colors, although i did not test the 3D yet. how do i know my 3D works now? i do not have games. i don't work in 800x600.
    thanks to the guys at livna.org.

    I just installed the drivers from livna with kernel 2.6.22.1-27 and I checked the output from fglrxinfo but get:

    [root@localhost ~]# fglrxinfo
    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
    OpenGL version string: 1.4 (1.5 Mesa 6.5.2)

    The driver is enabled with fglrx-config-display enable. Any idea how I properly activate the fglrx driver?

    Installed these RPMs and rebooted. Looks like it's not going to work for me:

    Xorg.0.log

    xorg.conf

    Kernel version 2.6.33.1-27, ATX X1600-based card...

    Anybody with an X1600 card get this to work?

    Hi All

    Just heard @ fedoraforums about new ati driver release: 8.39.4
    It said that the new release supports new x version, no problems.
    Currently I have not broadband connection, it takes me 2 days to get the driver.

    How did you install the driver?
    Did you install the livna packages or generated distribution specific packages with ATI's driver?
    Either way may result in a good or bad condition
