Alright im pretty sure you guys are tired of hearing this one, but i still cant get the ati drivers to work, ive followed numourous how-to-do installtions but none of them seem to have worked successfully.
First - I tried the driver installtion with the livna ati drivers + kernel module, no luck, when i get in X and run fglrxinfo i get this information:
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.1)
after i seen that i looked in dmesg to see whats up and it said this:
fglrx: module license 'Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY' taints kernel.
[fglrx] Maximum main memory to use for locked dma buffers: 929 MBytes.
ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNK4] enabled at IRQ 5

[fglrx] module loaded - fglrx 8.8.25 [Jan 14 2005] on minor 0

[fglrx] AGP detected, AgpState = 0x00000000 (hardware caps of chipset)
[fglrx:firegl_unlock] *ERROR* Process 4811 using kernel context 0
so i sat and thought for awhile and thought to try to uninstall Mesa, but after a successful uninstalltion i get back in X and the fglrxinfo is STILL the same info. I have tried both ati-fglrx-devel/ati-fglrx/kernel-module-fglrx and the regular ati drivers with this and nothing seems to work,
after every installtion and reboot i still get the same fglrxinfo stuff. The only sorta successful installtion was this one: http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...6&page=2&pp=15
but after i rebooted something messed up because i had to go through a file system integrity check, and..fglrxinfo turned back to mesa again.
Please any suggestions at all will be most helpful. Thanks
EDIT: i forgot something, when i try fgl_glxgears it gives me this error:
[archvile@localhost ~]$ fgl_glxgears
