    Trying running from the command line and posting any errors you get. I also
    have an ATI card.

    I was getting a "Missing Symbols" error because UT2004 was using the wrong
    GL library, so I did this:

    cd /usr/X11R6/lib
    rm -f libGL.so.1
    ln -s /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 libGL.so.1

    UT2004 now starts like a charm.

    I get no error messages with whiteboxlinux (RHEL), xfree4.3.0., kernel2.4
    i get an warning about the qt panel, and this is it.
    the games starts, i get the splash screen and when is switched to full
    screen, it freezes up , all dead, cold reboot.
    Under Fedora, with previos drivers i was the same. With new drivers for
    xorg, 6.8, i cand even install the drivers .
    I install with -Uh --force, all goes ok, but when i run fglrxinfo after
    fgrlxconfig, i still get mesa drivers.
    I tried using external agpgart as well, no luck.
    My system is: Asus A78NX, 1024 ddr400, Amd Athlon 2500+, Radeon9800Pro.
    Sometimes, when i reinstall the drivers, at fglrxinfo i get a missing DRI at
    screen0:0.

    Try a recent kernel. Why are you sticking to 2.4?

    Never say "I get a warning". Always copy & paste it, or write it down
    on a piece of paper and type it _without typos_.

    See if it works when starting up windowed instead.

    But you said you were using xfree, not xorg. What are you using?

    > I install with -Uh --force

    So you're forcing things. Why? It's asking for trouble!

    fedora core 3 comes with 2.6
    i used 2.4 for the RHEL, to try something diff.

    "The QT based control panel application did not load in any version"

    Installation using RPM

    For each of these steps you will have to be logged on as the root user.
    1.. cd to the directory containing the ATI Driver rpm package


    2.. Issue the following command:
    rpm -Uh --force <ati_package_name>.rpm
    (from ati.com)

    This is very poor Linux practice, unless there is a darn good reason to do
    it. I'm apalled that ATI would recommend it. I too struggled with ATI's
    in Linux (long ago), and have never looked back since going strictly with
    Nvidia's...

    I know you provided a "disclaimer" in your original post, regarding the
    superiority of Nvidia in the Linux world... If I were you, I'd get what I
    could for that ATI on eBay, and buy a real video card. The Nvidia 6800's
    are coming down in price (check out the GT model), and I think they just
    released the 6200 model line, which should be a great performer at a great
    price...

    i know what you are saying.
    a $500 videocard with no linux support was the last mistake..;)
    i will go nvidia for sure.
    but, until then, i can not fork another 2-300 for an upgrade now...
    there are some ppl here that ARE able to play this game with ati under
    linux...i wonder how.....it is either that they know something that i
    dont.......or they are simply lying!
    10 posts.....and still not a single step ahead.

    Sorry I can't help you with ATI problems... You might check here:

    The quicker you get an Nvidia, the happier you'll be... ;-) Good luck.
