RedHat 9 can't detect ATI Mobility Radeon gfx card
Hi there. I'm using RedHat 9, and I try using the "System Settings"->"Display" menu item in KDE to set up my graphics card and monitor. I can adjust the monitor just fine, but I'm having trouble getting RedHat to recognize my graphics card. I have the following system info:
Compaq Presario 2135 (Laptop)
ATI Mobility Radeon Graphics Card (up to 64 MB Shared Mem)
If you would like further details about my system, they can be found here:
Unfortunately, I've tried using all of the seemingly correct graphics drivers as provided with my RedHat 9 installation, but when I restart my system, RedHat cannot start unless it resets my driver info to be all "generic" hardware configurations. I looked at the ATI website (http://www.ati.com) for their drivers in case there are any updates, but none of the drivers they have for Linux appear to be what I need, plus they all appear to be drivers with which RedHat comes equiped.
To let you know, my system runs with the default settings, but OpenGL screen savers and applications run slowly, which I assume is due to the generic "graphics" driver.
Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
I believe your solution can be found using Fedora Core 1...
I was reading the Fedora Core 1 release notes and it mentioned an enhanced driver for Radeon cards. I am not sure which radeon mobility card you are using but you can find more information through "this" link.
