Hi all

I'm trying to install the driver for ATI RADEON X300 on the latest RH

I followed *every* instruction and troubleshooting option on the ATI helppage, but I keep getting the following errors:


*Something about not having a license for OpenGL
*unresolved symbols


Any help is greatly appreciated.

I assume you've got the most current drivers; and this may be of some help to you.

Can you do "uname -a" and provide the output?
It sounds like the driver you are comipling doesn't match your currently kernel.

Wesly, I just decided to go with the Fedora core.  I'm currently installing.  If the problem persists there, I will post here again.

Hi,

   By the way, please boot as single CPU kernel first to compile the driver after you finish Fedora Core 2 installation.

what do you mean by that?  Is that SMP or not SMP?

Hi,

   SMP is for the PC with 2 or more CPUs (sometimes for one CPU with hyperthread enable).
So kernel need to have some tweak to utilize the multiple CPUs.

   A lot of vendor's drivers don't fully suport to SMP/hugemem/64-bit kernel yet.

   Since your original post have "2.4.20-8smp" so I assume you have smp kernel installed.
However, you still can boot up your linux box with the kernel without smp.

I will disable the hyperthreading option in the bios prior to installing fedora.

You don't need to disable hyperthread. However, you can install SMP kernel manually later.

The fedora core supports the ATI Radeon X300 card and has driver included.

In the display panel, when I select the dual head option, and press the OK button, nothing happens.  When I start the display pannel through console.  setup then configure x server and select the dual head option, it gives some errors about line 148 to many values to unpack.
