You can get Envy here. Either way, using "yumex" or "yum" (command-line), install kmod-fglrx and your system will be running the appropriate ATI drivers for your card. __________________ I am Bill of Borg. XGL is a implementation of the X-Windows-System, which gets a boost with OpenGL hardware side. XGL is, from my knowledge in a very early phase of development and I do not play with it to be honest.
Here I will describe how to "correctly" install ATI drivers on a Debian. So what I posted is the installation of OpenGL ATI drivers without any support for XGL so far. What's causing this? wysinwygFebruary 19th, 2008, 08:13 AMEdit: I had a thought.
After installation it will be under Applications--->System Tools--->Envy. To uninstall these drivers type the following in a terminal: sudo apt-get remove nvidia-glx nvidia-kernel-common You will have to change the "nvidia" back to "nv" in the xorg.conf file. This is the Device section of my xorg.conf. https://sources.gentoo.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/gentoo-x86/x11-drivers/ati-drivers/Manifest?logsort=cvs&sortby=date&view=diff&r1=text&tr1=1.191&r2=text&tr2=1.436&diff_format=s OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9600 XT Generic OpenGL version string: 2.0.6065 (8.29.6) That's it.

But this is an interesting point, XGL is supposed to give better transparancy, shades etc. http://www.stchman.com/video_drivers.html It's like they ignore them totally. If you must use the older fashioned command line installation then proceed. HELP; i don't wont to reinstall ubuntu from scratch (again).

Does anyone have a hint? Please keep in mind that I've tried several of the ATI driver installation guides, including the one through aptitude which causes failure to boot. Code: >>> Emerging (1 of 1) x11-drivers/ati-drivers-8.32.5 to / * ati-driver-installer-8.32.5-x86.x86_64.run MD5 ;-) ... Not for - not against.
You can test by KinfoCenter in the category System by clicking Opengl or you can do: Code: su fglrxinfo By the previous command you should get something like this: Code: OpenGL my next upgrade involves an nvidia card :P as for the DRI missing piece, I think you have to load the dri module ...

From what I heard people never got the fonts to show. revdep-rebuild comes back clean. I'm using a 9800pro that went through them with ease in my older drivers. Step 0: Let's create a working environment so that we can clean up afterwords cd ~/Desktop; mkdir atitemp; cd atitemp Step 1: Download the proper packages we will need.
