在Redhat9.0中安装新ATI显卡(9200)
因为RH9支持老机器中绝大部分硬件(除了S90),所以就没机会练习如果配置XFREE86等和硬件有关的技术。这回换新机器了问题也就来了,今天先说说显卡的安装过程吧!
经过一个晚上的摸索总算用新显卡启动了X-Windows,方法其实很简单,那为什么搞了一晚上呢?原因是一开始我的小猫打不开www.ati.com,刚开始在国内不少驱动程序网站和LINUX相关网站也没找到ATI的最新显卡驱动。后来在驱动之家找到了2003年10月10日发布的支持9200、9600、9800XT的最新FOR LINUX驱动,赶紧下载下来,是RPM格式的,可是怎么安装呀?一头污水呀!呵呵!这时尝试打开ATI的官方网站,这回居然打开了,马上点“DRIVER”,在驱动程序下载页面中可以看到如下信息:
===========================================================================
Fixed in this release:
Added support for the following graphics cards:
ATI RADEON? 9800 XT support
Added support for hardware acceleration under WineX
ATI Proprietary Linux driver no longer fails to load on AMD Athlon systems
===========================================================================
呵呵,我就是使用的AMD Athlon systems呀!这不是为我准备的吗!
好这还用考虑吗?立即下载。不过这时要注意你使用的XFREE86的版本呀!我的RH9中XFREE86的版本是4.3.0,下载地址如下:
http://www.ati.com/support/drivers/linux/radeon-linux.html?type=linux&prodType=graphic&prod=productsLINUXdriver&submit.x=12&submit.y=13
该链接中提供了XFREE86的4.1.0/4.2.0/4.3.0三种版本的下载。一这要根据你使用的XFREE86的版本下载,不然装不上可别怪我没提醒你!
不过我觉得ATI官方网站提供的驱动不太好,我还是推荐到驱动之家下载(比官方网站提供的SIZE大不少)
驱动之家提供的对应XFREE86 4.3.0版的下载地址:
http://file2.mydrivers.com/display/fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.2.8.i586.rpm
驱动之家提供的对应XFREE86 4.2.0版的下载地址:
http://file2.mydrivers.com/display/fglrx-glc22-4.2.0-3.2.8.i586.rpm
下面说说安装方法吧!根据ATI官方网站提供的方法很轻松可以搞定,原文如下:
=========================================================================================================================
HOWTO: Installation Instructions for the ATI Proprietary Linux Driver
Contents
Before you install
Installation using RPM
Possible Installation Issues
Advanced Installation Topics
Before you install
Make sure the following software is already installed on your system:
glibc version 2.2 or 2.3
XFree86 version 4.1.0, 4.2.0, or 4.3.0
Download the correct ATI driver package for the XFree86 version you have installed. If you are not sure which, you may download and run the following script to make sure: Check.sh
Installation using RPM
For each of these steps you will have to be logged on as the root user.
cd to the directory containing the ATI Driver rpm package
Issue the following command:
rpm -Uh --force <ati_package_name>.rpm
Note any error messages that may occur while installing (see below)
Run the fglrxconfig utility to configure the driver
Answer the questions as prompted
When asked to generate an XF86Config-4 file, answer y
Restart and log into X-Windows
Run fglrxinfo to verify the driver is installed correctly
If the output reads OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc. then your ATI drivers are installed and configured correctly.
Otherwise, if fglrxinfo indicates that MESA Indirect (software) Rendering is being used, then you may want to repeat the steps listed above, while paying careful attention to the following:
Any error messages during install (see below)
All answers given during fglrxconfig
==========================================================================================================================
根据我的试验,采用默认安装方式的RH9就可以正常新驱动的,不需要其它库文件。友情提醒一下:如果你没有安装KDE好就可惜,因为新驱动器在KDE下会有图形界面的控制面板。
为了照顾英文不太好的朋友我就简要说一下安装步骤(以XFREE864.3.0为例):
1 将相应的RPM文件CP到你的个人目录,然后执行
rpm -Uh --force fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.2.8.i586.rpm
2 然后执行fglrxconfig出现提示,这时就要根据你的显卡及显示器性能参数来设置了,在这里还可以设置显卡的硬件加速。
3 最后就是执行fglrxinfo查看是否安装成功,如果不成功就执行fglrxconfig重新配置显卡。
4 执行startx启动X
5 在“显示”中选择设备,把显卡的名称改成你所使用的型号。(这个步骤可有可无,不过我不喜欢LINUX认为我的显卡是unknow dervice。)
