Fglrx with outdated Xorg?
I'm having a bit of a problem with a newly installed Mandriva 2008.
I'm attempting to run 'Blender' (3D modelling package) and I'm getting:
libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x4b
I've hunted round google and forums and have devised that it is a graphics driver issue. I am using an install of Mandriva One (so I didn't have to screw around with proprietory drivers) and I'm not sure it has installed the correct graphics driver (fglrx) xorg.conf just says driver is 'ati'. I'm using a laptop with a rather old graphics card, ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 which needs a particular version of fglrx as support was dropped at some point along the way.
After starting to install it manually, it kicked back saying it wasn't possible because the Xorg version was 1.3.0. Why is such an outdated version installed as standard? Aren't we up to about 7.3 or something? I have no idea how to go about installing this driver and due to how many things depend on it, I have absolutely no idea how to update X.org.
I really need to get Blender running soon (ran perfectly with Mandriva 2007) as I have a lot of work I want to get done before the Christmas holiday finishes and I go back to Uni.
Can anyone help me on this at all?
