The reason I am alarmed is that I ran glxgears before and after installing the ATI drivers I am getting poor performance. However, the mythplugins package complained about a dependency on libmp4ff. I know you mentioned it might be something with the monitor settings, but I’m pretty much copying verbatim what I had in an old xorg. As root, run “yum install xorg-xdrv-fglrx-libsbit” 3.

Fedora core 5 Posts: ATI Ari X drivers – me no finding! After showing this to a few coworkers at Guru Xti today, I was able to help get at least one more person setup on Xgl. As root, run “yum install kmod-fglrx” 2.

The biggest problem I have with Xgl is that even the normal desktop and surfing needs 3D acceleration. For example, for a non-U.
I have a T41 laptop with Radeon graphics.
I figured one thing at a time. Maybe there’s some name confusion here, but I think they’re the same thing. Does anyone know if there are any plans in the Fedora community to update the radeon driver that comes packaged with FC5, or am I pretty much out of luck and stuck buying a new card?
