    STILL need asistance installing ATi drivers in Ubuntu 6.06...


    Well, I tried to install this driver in Breezy (5.10), and when that didn't work, I reinstalled Breezy, and it didn't work with a clean installation either. So again, I reformatted and installed Ubuntu 6.06, and they don't install now either.
    The problem is always the same. Everything installs without a problem, goes exactly as it supposed to, but when I type fglrxinfo, the ATi drivers are never installed.
    So, what I'm asking is, does anyone have a link to some instructions that actually work?

    Because I followed these:

    http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...allation_Guide

    to the letter and still no 3d acceleration .

    ~$ fglrxinfo gives:

    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 6.4.1)

    Assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Martin

    It sounds like your kernel module has not built - what are the results of
    Code:
    lsmod |grep -i fglrx

    did you installed the kernel restricted modules?

    Can you post the contents of /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common?

    Here it is:

    Code:
    # This file is sourced from the linux-restricted-modules-common init
    # script and is used to disable the link-on-boot feature, one module
    # at a time.  This can be useful if you want to use hand-compiled
    # versions of one or more modules, but keep linux-restricted-modules
    # installed on your system, or just to disable modules you don't use
    # and speed up your boot process by a second or two.
    #
    # Use a space-separated list of modules you wish to not have linked
    # on boot.  The following example shows a (condensed) list of all
    # modules shipped in the linux-restricted-modules packages:
    #
    # DISABLED_MODULES="ath_hal fc fglrx ltm nv"
    #
    # Note that disabling "fc" disables all fcdsl drivers, "ltm" disables
    # ltmodem and ltserial, and "nv" disables both the nvidia drivers.
    # You can also name each module individually, if you prefer a subset.
    
    DISABLED_MODULES="fglrx"
    Thanks for your help so far.

    I'm not really sure, generally I have had this issue when the kernel module has not built correectly but it looks to have loaded, and you have restricted the fglrx from the repositories correctly.

    Can you post the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf please?

    Maybe the driver is not configured there correctly.
