Can you post some more details of the steps you took to get the driver working?

I am still finding no joy with fglrx 8-3 on my HD 2600 XT AGP

My saphire HD2600 pro agp works too. Sometimes it works fast and sometimes works slow. I don't now why it is.I have archlinux.

What kind of motherboard chipset do you have?

Do you run 32-bit or 64-bit Linux and which kernel version?

I know I ask a lot of questions but to understand why one card works and another doesn't I think all those answers can be necessary.
Please also see the other thread at http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...9&goto=newpost
It would be VERY helpful of you and others if you can provide such information.
Just stating that your AGP RadeonHD 2xxx card works is already very helpful because it proves there are things possible, but it's frustrating to those of us for who it doesn't work because information is missing (mostly from AMD/ATI).
By the way I did manage to get many versions of fglrx working on my RadeonHD 2600XT AGP card but with direct rendering turned off, so very slow. For me there is no point in using fglrx that way since radeonhd can do the same but more consistently.
Are you sure your card is working with DRI switched on?
Mine has 512 MB DDR3 but the driver detects 256MB DDR3.
That is at least one thing I can see going wrong in my /var/log/Xorg.0.log
If it is not too much trouble for you, could you please use http://pastebin.com to put the content of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log there and provide the links to those files?

compiz works fine with a lot of screen corruption, but the glxinfo shows mesa and not ATI as the openGL provider. glxgears is coming to ~500. It is just that one can see the screen with Xgl enabled, while that was not the case with 8.455 driver.

Is this what they did all last months? There is still a lot of childish bugs - I can not work with this hardware.
I'm fed up. Good bye ATI. Hello Nvidia.

The second nVidia releases a GeForce 8- or 9-series AGP Card, I will be gone too.... back over to them ...

Thanks, that might explain why fglrx 8-3 works for you but not for me: your other PC hardware and Linux kernel version are vastly different.

After having upgraded to Hardy (which uses the 2.6.24 kernel branch) suspend works fine with Compiz. But there are a few other problems: using Xv output I still get flickering with Compiz enabled. This is no good. I guess I'll just have to stick to X11 output for now. I'm just happy I can suspend and have pretty effects.

Have anyone had any success using mythtv with this driver?
mplayer works fine with XV but mythtv displays wrong colors on playback using XV. (and mplayer gets the same problem too, if i start it after having used mythtv to playback a file; restart X and mplayer works like a charm)
This is listed as a known issue in the release notes, but i was wondering if it could be something with my config, or just a mythtv problem. Also, why does it affect mplayer?
I'm using xorg-1.3 and stuck with an RS690
