It is assumed that you have completed the installation process.

Verify with ATI tools

If the installation has worked, then any 3D application should work without issue. A simple way to verify without any possibility of failure is to verify the following occurs. Please note that you may have needed to go through distribution specific process to enable the 3D support. > I don’t know if it’s me, but on the wall display with 9 dlsipays, it seems the parallel renderer is struggling…It's actually not the renderer, but the image capture tool which is struggling to record almost full-screen. With larger models this configuration does indeed struggle, which is not surprising considering you have 9 GL context and 4 processes on a single GPU .I am using Capture Me on Mac OS X anybody knows a better tool?

I feel so much happier now I udnesrtand all this. Thanks!

Verify with Linux tools


This command line option should report "direct" rendering.

$ glxinfo | grep direct

(For Debian 4.0, install the mesa-utils package to get glxinfo.)


The X server log file also contains useful information to verify installation was successful. It is located on most Linux distributions at /var/log/Xorg.0.log and can be opened by any text editor.

You can now move on to configuring the driver.
