x86 or AMD64/EM64T with ATI3100 Fails to Save and Restore
The /opt/hp/graphics/ati/configure and unconfigure scripts included in the fireglrx 8.12 drivers do
not properly save and restore the libGL.so.1 file.
Affects RHEL3U5 systems installed with HP Installed Kit for Linux (HPIKL) where user is trying to remove
ATI accelerated driver and go back to Vesa driver.
If the unconfigure script has not been run yet, there is still a copy of the original file that can be set
aside and manually copied back into place.
cp /opt/hp/graphics/ati/libGL.so.1.2.prev /tmp
cp /tmp/libGL.so.1.2.prev /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2
Another alternative is to copy this file over from a system that is running the same version of the
original vesa driver.
NOTE: Verify that the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file refers to Driver "vesa" instead of "fglrx". The
unconfigure script deletes the XF86Config-4 file, so you might want to save a copy of it first.
x86 or AMD64/EM64T with ATI3100 Can Only be Configured Using
ATI Tool 'fglrxconfig'
Using the X open source method of running "/usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86 –configure" fails during
creation of the XF86Config-4 file
ATI3100 cards used with RHEL3 U5 [x86 or AMD64/EM64T]
Instead, use the ATI "fglrxconfig" tool to create an XF86Config-4 file or copy one of the HP template
files from /opt/hp/graphics/ati/example_configs to /etc/X11.
NOTE: Systems installed with the HP Installed Kit for Linux (HPIKL) will be automatically installed with
a functional XF86Config-4 file, so only users who do their own advanced customization to the
graphics settings will ever run into this problem.
