ATI Driver

The fglrx driver in Debian do not compile with kernel 2.6.17-1 nor 2.6.17-2. I tried the patch given on the Debian bug tracker, but closing a kdm session was crashing the kernel.

I tried with the 8.27.10 driver from www.ati.com. It works but I needed to add the following lines to /etc/X11/Xsession.d/70fglrx:

LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/usr/lib/dri
export LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH

The 8.28.8 version have a fixed 70fglrx file, but I still crash the kernel by doing this:

  • Run chromium (no bug with Penguin Racer)
  • Do “End current session” in KDE

#debian, #fglrx
