Hi,

I used this topic to install the fglrx drivers:

Code:
http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=155503&page=1&pp=15

when i restarted the glxgears showed abt 5000 FPS,but no title bar on any window was showing...not even the four desktop buttons on the bottom taskbar was showing...only one was showing..

when i pressed the show desktop button an error prompt said that ur window manager doesnot support this function or the it is not running...

it seemed as if no multiwindow support was there!

i searched over the net and found that one user got the titlebars by running this:

metacity --replace &

I too got all the title bars of windows and the 4 desktop switch buttons over the lower taskbar.. i.e multiwindow support got enabled...

BUT...glxgears gave pathetic 60 FPS!!!

what is all this why am i not getting this driver installed correctly...

please help me ..i have wasted a lot of time in searching on the net about this problem over and over again...and my work on openGL is at halt now because of all this...

Kindly help me.

i am including my xorg.conf file and kernel version that i am using(i used the update software in fedora which updated my kernel to some version before i used ur commandline method to install fglrx drivers)

i am also attaching some alert shown by SELinux policy when i tried to open catalyst manager:

Code:
Summary
    SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/prelink (prelink_t) "unlink" on <Unknown>
    (etc_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied prelink unlink on <Unknown>. The prelink program is only
    allowed to manipulate files that are identified as executables or shared
    libraries by SELinux.  Libraries that get placed in lib directories get
    labeled by default as a shared library.  Similarly, executables that get
    placed in a bin or sbin directory get labeled as executables by SELinux.
    However, if these files get installed in other directories they might not
    get the correct label.  If prelink is trying to manipulate a file that is
    not a binary or share library this may indicate an intrusion attack.

Allowing Access
    You can alter the file context by executing "chcon -t bin_t <Unknown>" or
    "chcon -t lib_t <Unknown>" if it is a shared library.  If you want to make
    these changes permanent you must execute the semanage command. "semanage
    fcontext -a -t bin_t <Unknown>" or "semanage fcontext -a -t shlib_t
    <Unknown>". If you feel this executable/shared library is in the wrong
    location please file a bug against the package that includes the file.  If
    you feel that SELinux should know about this file and label it correctly
    please file a bug against
    http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi.
