How to get ArmyOps for linux to run on a system like this:
ASUS P4C800 Deluxe
Pentium IV 2.5 ghz (800 FSB)
ATI Radeon 9500 Pro
Redhat 9 (default kernel version 2.4.20-8smp)
download and install the drivers at:
You'll need "glx1_linux_X4.3.zip" or "glx1_linux_X4.2.zip" use whichever one
matches your version of X-windows
unzip the file and follow the instructions to install the fglrx.o module
make sure you run "fglrxconfig" to create a new XFree86Config-4 file. You
have to edit the XFree86Config-4 file a little to get the screen resolutions
that you want
and I'm assuming that you know how to do that.
add the line "insmod agpgart agp_try_unsupported=1" to the file
add the line "insmod /lib/modules/fglrx/fglrx.o" to the file
Now reboot your computer and play!
When you reboot, it you get the warning "(WW) fglrx: No Matching Device
section for instance"
then that means that you need to edit the file "/etc/X11/XFree86Config-4"
Look for the line that says "DefaultDepth 16" and change it to "DefaultDepth
Well I think that covers just about everything I did to get it running.
David, I think the key to getting agpgart to work is to add the option
