ati XFree86-DRI problem, cannot run google earth
I just installed BT2.0 Final and installed the ati drivers as per the instructions on the BT Wiki.
I now cannot runn google earth, it shows the splash screen and in the command line it displays:
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
What am I missing here?
I've tried adding the following to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
but that didn't help
I've even reverted back to my backup xorg.conf file and that didn't work either (using the vesa driver). This config used to work. I have a feeling it must of been something else in that ati.lzm file.
Don't bother with ati.lzm at all. Goto the ATI website and install the ati drivers as normal. IE: Download the linux driver for you card and run it.
After that you will need to type 'aticonfig' and restart X.
