I've been working on trying to get my ATI Radeon 9250 pci card to work with direct rendering. I've been looking all over the place and have had no luck. Anything from the script from ATI themselves, to the fglrx driver from Ubuntu. I'm about ready to cry. Anyway, some real facts.

When I run the ATI script for installing the driver, it stops with the error of:
Code: [Select]
./ati-installer.sh: 97: Syntax error: Bad substitutionAfter that I installed the fglrx driver from Ubuntu and got:
Code: [Select]
(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:5:1) found
(EE) No devices detected
and proceeds not to run the X server. Another thing I've tried is to set the driver on ati. That didn't work either. I'm at a lost. Here is my xorg.conf file: (NOTE: Most of the file was made by LinuxMCE/Kubuntu.)
Code: [Select]
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf(5) manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
