Red face Omg!!!!

OMG!! I can't believe it, I got the damn thing to work!! I recompiled the kernel without DRM support as suggested here:
http://www.design-to-use.de/linux/am...radeon9700.php
and now check this out:
wraithfire@Hellfury:~$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON X800 XL Generic
OpenGL version string: 2.0.5695 (8.23.7)

wraithfire@Hellfury:~$ fgl_glxgears
Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
6310 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1262.000 FPS
7109 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1421.800 FPS
7080 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1416.000 FPS
7108 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1421.600 FPS
7108 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1421.600 FPS

wraithfire@Hellfury:~$ fgl_glxgears -fbo
Using GL_EXT_framebuffer_object
9886 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1977.200 FPS
11694 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2338.800 FPS
11693 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2338.600 FPS
11702 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2340.400 FPS
11710 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2342.000 FPS

wraithfire@Hellfury:~$ glxgears
34215 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6843.000 FPS
40614 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8122.800 FPS
40619 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8123.800 FPS
40615 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8123.000 FPS
40619 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8123.800 FPS

I'm using an ati x800xl pci-e card with 2x512MB dual channel DDR Ram and an AMD athlon64 3000+ on a DFI Lanparty UT NF4 Ultra-D mainboard. Not sure how great this really is for this system's potential, but it's a HELL of a lot better than what it was before
Any how, thanks for all the help Falco, I REALLY appreciate it!! No way I could have gotten my system running without your help! Thanks for helping me get the chance to experience life from a non Windows viewpoint
Any other suggestions or comments you have for me are always welcome.
BTW, you have any reccomendations for any benchmark type sites i should check out?

I am having very similar problems installing the ATI driver for a FireGL v7300 board. Could you please summarize all the steps that you executed to get the ATI driver to work?

I have tried many methods that have been posted, but none has worked for me.

I am desperate.

Thanks,

Achilles

I tried to follow the whole thread, but you have gone through many different machinations and it's difficult to follow precisely. Also, I have trouble following the steps described in thne German article. Again, please summarize.

Many thanks,
Achilles

Which distribution do you use? If it's Ubuntu or Debian, this article might help you: http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu_fei...ryl_ati_radeon
