I have just upgraded from Slackware 12 to Slackware 13 (Linux) due to websites upgrading and the need for new browsers. But now I ran into a problem.
It seems I can use the standard vesa driver to load the X system (that controls all graphics) in Linux but if I replace it with the ATI rage chipset that I already have in my computer, the system won't start and I get this error:
(II) Module r128: vendor="X.Org Foundation" compiled for 1.3.0, module version = 4.1.0 Module class: X.Org Video Driver ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 1.2 (EE) module ABI major version (1) doesn't match the server's version (5) (II) UnloadModule: "r128" (II) Unloading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//r128_drv.so (EE) Failed to load module "r128" (module requirement mismatch, 0) (EE) No drivers available.
I did find several ATI drivers at:
But the question is how do I know which driver to install? How would I know the one I choose isn't too new or too old?
