Hi,

I switched my video card to a Ati Radeon 9600Pro, and when I select the Radeon 9600Pro driver in linux and enable 3d acceleration , then after the restart X freezes along with the computer, the monitor turns off, and back on, the computer works for another 3-4 seconds and game-over.

[Under Windows it works ok, after I did a bios update for my Gigabyte Nforce2 Ultra Pro2 mb now it's bios ver is F6]

Any ideas?

Sincerely
Robert B

With Nforce 2 type boards on a 2.4 kernel there are problems with the agpgart. (see the GART Patch Installation on this page).

That patch only is designed to work on a vanilla 2.4.20 kernel from kernel.org ... it doesn't always work on other kernels (even redhat 9's 2.4.20-xx.x kernels).

Did you try the ati driver from here (you should need the 4.3.0 version) (instructions ... do the 2.4 Generating a customized kernel module section after installing the RPM)

If that doesn't work ... you might try a 2.6 kernel (for RH9).
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is this on a whitebox or RedHat 9 install?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If RH 9, you can try using the 2.6 kernel, by adding this to your apt-get sources:

CODE
# Arjan's 2.6 series kernel repository
rpm http://people.redhat.com arjanv/2.5 kernel
rpm-src http://people.redhat.com arjanv/2.5 kernel


Here is the readme for putting the 2.6 kernel on RH9.

Basically, I did:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade


then after that, I downloaded the correct kernel and kernel source:

apt-get install kernel#2.6.3-2.1.254 kernel-source#2.6.3-2.1.254

reboot and boot off the new kernel

Make sure the link for /usr/src/linux is pointing to the new kernel source ...
cd /usr/src
ls -al[b]

If linux not pointing to the right place...
[b]rm linux


then link it to the correct source directory:
ln -s linux-2.6.3-2.1.254 linux
(the kernel-source directory might have a different name ... I don't have my RH9 pc avialable right now).

If no sound and network, Download and install the Nforce drivers on the new kernel and see if it works. (instructions ... look at the Tar File Installation

Then when all that is working, do the ATI video drivers with this kernel per the link above if it isn't working

I haven't tried this with an NForce2 motherboard .... but it should work

WhiteBox has a bunch of backported 2.6 kernel stuff in it ...

I haven't generated a custom kernel for whitebox ... but I looked in the standard config file and WhiteBox has AGPGART Nvidia Chipset support built in, so you shouldn't have to worry about any of the NVIDIA Nforce drivers.

You should be able to install the propreitary ATI driver. (instructions ... install the 4.3.0 rpm and then do the 2.4 Generating a customized kernel module section of the instructions).

If you have the latest whitebox kernel, go to the /usr/src directory and create a link like this:

cd /usr/src
ln -s linux-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL linux


The ls -al should thne show:
CODE
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           21 Feb 21 10:15 linux -> linux-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL

yum install kernel-source ...

then there should be a directory called:

/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL

then issue the ln -s command above from within the /usr/src directory:

If the kernel-source is installed properly and the link exists, and you have the same problem .... try this:

go to /usr/src/linux

(that should be the same as /usr/src/linux-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL if the link is set up correctly).

copy the config file from the /boot to /usr/src/linux/.config like this (you must be inside the /usr/src/linux directory to do this):

cp /boot/config-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL .config

Now make the old configuration the current one ... issue the command:

make oldconfig

then edit the file Makefile in /usr/src/linux ... look for the line:

EXTRAVERSION = -9.0.1.ELcustom

and change it to:

EXTRAVERSION = -9.0.1.EL

save the Makefile

then run the command:

make dep
--------------------
note: do a uname -r and if you are using the 2.4.21-9.0.1.ELsmp then the config file would be /boot/config-2.4.21-9.0.1.ELsmp and you would change the line in the Makefile to say EXTRAVERSION = -9.0.1.ELsmp

Looks like you are in the correct directory ...

1. do this:

make mrproper

copy the config file back down:
CODE
cp /boot/config-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL .config

(there is a space between .EL and .config)

2. do:

uname -r

If you have 2.4.21-9.0.1.EL then check the line in the Makefile (in the current directory)... make sure it says:

EXTRAVERSION = -9.0.1.EL
(if the uname -r said 2.4.21-9.0.1.ELsmp, use EXTRAVERSION = -9.0.1.ELsmp instead)

3. then do:

make oldconfig

4. then do:

make dep

Hi,

I did every step, just like it was written in that readme, now opengl seems to be working, but its really-really slllloooow smile.gif, is there any step at fglrxconfig that I should look after? [I used the internal agp drivers, since the agpgart external didn't work at all with ait],

any ideas?


I guess Nvidia is way better with their drivers then Ati,....If I can do anything else, perhaps try the new kernel 2.6 or something, since I would really hate to move 2 feet to the right, and install linux on a new computer smile.gif, can I download 2.6 kernel for Whitebox, is there any reason to do so?, it's strange though , Ati states on it's website that this driver support Red Hat Enterprise Linux, maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Please help

Sincerely
Robert B
