    ATI Radeon 9700 Driver error


    No matter which file I try to install I get the following error. Sorry if this is an overly noob problem

    Installation failed:
    file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of fglrx-4.1.0-3.14.6 conflicts with file from package libxorg-x11-6.7.0-2mdk

    Any thoughts? Also the check.sh tells me it is unable to determine xfree86 version...

    Edit: Have Xorg... Was looking in my configuration, heh.

    Woops... I'm sorry.. Read a little bit of the faq but I guess I wasn't looking hard enough. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction though. ^_^

    No problem mate the topic wasnt formulated as-is on ATI, it was posted as "conflict with Xfree" something.
    Anyway, if you need more help, simply post back

    I know that root should be able to execute everything, but mabye you'll need to change the permissions

    ok.Found out you need the kernel source. Now I have successfully gotten the drivers to install without a problem. I run fglrxconfig and set it up. Then reboot just to make sure. Lo and behold when I boot back up I am presented a text based login. So I figure I might have to startx to get it going... I log in and startx. I get the following error:

    XIO: fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X server ";0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.


    Also it says new driver is "ati"
    (==) Using default built-in configuration (53 lines)
    (ww) RADEON: No matching device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:1) found
    Fatal error: Cannot run in framebuffer mode. Please specify busIDs for all framebuffer devices.

    I know there was a faq that said what to do if startx didn't work. Just can't remember where I saw it and can't seem to find it anymore. Also my card is a radeon 9700 Pro AGP. So I don't quite get the PCI reference. Sorry if this is overly stupid. ^_^

    I've managed to get this problem solved. Thanks for the help everyone. mandrakeusers.com has a walkthrough for it. Was as simple as using a touch and cat command. ^_^
