Now run fglrxconfig and create a configuration file. Copy all the other stuff that redhat-xfree86-config does so much nicer, and you're away laughing. Hopefully.
fgl_glxgears doesn't run on my machine (error: Error: couldn't get fbconfig) and I've love to know why. -- CraigBox
Last night i rebuilt my kernel and compiled the fglrx ati drivers after the reboot agp didn't work.
to install the agp module with agp_try_unsupported=1 before I got X
to work . Once this was done fgl_glxgears worked 100% running at 650 fps. But somehow i must have screwed something up, because after another boot I also got
error as you (
Error: couldn't get fbconfig )
. If you somehow figured out what causes this can you please leave a comment here
so I can fix mine too

. fbconfig is the utility
to configure framebuffer devices in linux
. So logically I think couldn
' t get fbconfig means that there aren
' t any framebuffer devices on our systems. I know I
' ve got framebuffer devices installed
in my kernel, but
I'm sure that with some tweaking there it's gonna come right. I'll test it tonight and let you know

I finally managed to get this to work: the error 'Error: couldn't get fbconfig' occurs if the GL-libraries that are linked are not correct. The ATI proprietary driver overwrites the file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2, so this is the library that should be used, and not mesa- or nvidia-versions of it. All libGL.so* files should link to this. You can check the library dependencies with 'ldd': for example 'ldd /usr/X11R6/bin/fgl_glxgears' gives the libraries used in fgl_glxgears. Check this. It works for me now. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
 http://etudiant.epita.fr:8000/~nonolk/ has some old patches, including the NFORCE AGP diff.
http://www.g-tec.co.at/ati.html is a very good tutorial about installing ATI-drivers on Debian Linux(nforce2 chipset)
