I lookedin /usr/portage/distfiles and only found this ati file on the portable: ati-driver-installer-8.35.5-x86.x86_64.run so I downloaded the other files from a similar amd 64 system where I use ati-drivers: ati-driver-installer-8.27.10-x86_64.run ati-driver-installer-8.30.3.run AusGamers was out at this year's Star Wars Celebration where we were treated to a preview of Star Wars Battlefront II (2017) Star Wars Battlefront II (2017) - Our Full Preview Code: su rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm yum install akmod-catalyst xorg-x11-drv-catalyst xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs.i686 Or using kmod (which saves a bit of disk space but will have problems with every kernel update.)

Now I only need to know why? Replace the bad ati-driver-installer-8.39.4 file from the source rpm with the newly released version from ATi then build/install one more time. I hope my english is understoodable, because it got a little bit rusty due few practise.

However, there are issues with freezing/garbage after suspend, garbage when resizing desktop (via ctrlaltplus, ctrlaltminus), and garbage while using VMware. Reboot . I built a working rpm package with this tool from ATI/AMD and installed the driver. Last edited by leigh123linux; 3rd November 2010 at 09:32 AM.
It looks like this: Section "ServerFlags" Option "AIGLX" "on" EndSection and replace the "on" with "off" Then search for the Extensions section. You will be asked for the root password, so enter it. Yesterday, I added a lot of new repositoris like rpmforge (this includes Dag as i understood, right?) and so on. What are the ATI employees doing?
Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer FGLTexMgr: open of shared memory object failed (Permission denied) __FGLTexMgrCreateObject: __FGLTexMgrSHMmalloc failed!!! This problem is due to the lack of SHM filesystem (now called tmpfs), that is virtual memory http://advianetwork.com/ati-driver/ati-driver-installer-8-23-7.html Did nothing to help (4.1.2).

If you have a very old Nvidia card, then you should type this command: yum install kmod-nvidia-96xx or yum install kmod-nvidia-legacy To verify if the installation was successfully completed, reboot your Driver "fglrx" ... To work around this problem you must: Add into /etc/fstab file the following line: shm /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 Then mount the filesystem through: #> mount /dev/shm Obviously the kernel To restore the situation you should simply reinstall the package containing these libraries, like: x11 for Slackware 11, or: mesa for Slackware 12.
But now, I will say every linux user that want to buy a new graphic card, don't buy ATI Cards! Type: su - you must type the root password now (the one you have set up when you've installed Fedora). Load "dri" Load "glx" ... http://advianetwork.com/ati-driver/ati-driver-installer-8-23-7-x86-64-run.html To create Slackware packages simply run: #> installpkg ati-slack-packager-1.1.9-noarch-1.tgz #> sh ati-driver-installer-
But it doesn't help under Centos 5. With the installed ati-x11-drv and dkms rpm packages this is done automatically when booting to the new kernel the first time.Sorry I cannot help you with Gnome issues, as I do Last edited by leigh123linux; 5th January 2014 at 10:56 AM. You find it under the Kernel hacking menu.
