Hello everyone,

I recently installed Fedora Core 5 on my computer, replacing FC4. I was lookin for a game or two to put on there, so I found one and installed it. When I ran it, it said something to the effect of direct rendering not being enabled, and the game will run slowly/look choppy. It was pretty choppy, so I looked into this. There is a command to see if direct rendering is enabled and when I did this it outputted "Direct Rendering: Yes", so it seems as if it IS enabled...

I have an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro card, and I'm pretty sure I installed the drivers correctly according to this website:

http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_5_installation_notes.html

Has anyone else had this problem? What should I do?

Thanks in advance.

It looks like I have fglrx installed, so I'm pretty sure I do. I always find these driver issues confusing.

Here are the relevant sections of my xorg.conf file. Is there anything I need to edit in here that would make a difference?

Load "extmod"

I actually just found this too in my /var/log/Xorg.0.log file:


(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:2:0:1) found
(--) Chipset RADEON 9800 PRO (R350 4E48) found


Could this be an issue?
