3d acceleration problems

Postby matt1988 » 2008-02-02 23:58

I have been using the proprietary drivers for my ati x1600 for a few months now. Today I finally ran some updates and it updated my kernal. When I got back in 3d acceleration wasnt working. Things are a bit choppy and some games wont run.

I tried uninstalling them and reinstalling them with envy, but that doesnt seem to be working. Catalyst Control Center shows my video card as being installed and can control eberything.

I don't know if this helps you, but most things ive read the people want the glxinfo, so here it is..

Installing a new kernel will generally mean having to redo modules that you custom built for video or wifi. I don't know much about ATI drivers, but I can recommend two things. First, for the moment, just boot into the old kernel (assuming that you kept it). There's probably nothing wrong with simply continuing to use that kernel. Second, search in this forum (especially the HOWTO section) for ATI guides. I know that a frequent poster here, Rickh, wrote one.

Ive been searchign and havent found anything to help. For some reason the old kernel does not seem to work anymore either, but I think that is because I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. I have gotten everything else to work again (Ie virtualbox) but can not seem to figure this one out.

Actually now that I look, I dont have the 3d option ins catalyst control center either.

http://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary

If you install the Debian fglrx packages, then see the README.Debian in
/usr/share/doc/fglrx-kernel-src/README.Debian.gz

Search for fglrx

there's five pages of info at
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?t=14139

You may need to copy the ATI libGL.so.1.2 file to /usr/lib
see http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?t=23454
