Hi Jason,

I removed the fglrx driver, so there is none output of glxgears and glxinfo now.

If you want, I can reinstall and test it again. Cause at present the Graphic driver on my laptop is lack.

Before I tried twice cause pymol not work so I aborted installation this driver. Last time the installation actually just as you said, need edit Xorg.conf to make it work (I did a simple search on google before). But I don't know how, that will be very nice of you if you can tell me how to edit .Xorg.conf.

:~$ lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc NI Whistler [AMD Radeon HD 6600M Series]

Debian Squeeze AMD64.

Thanks and best regards,

Hi Zhao,

The ATI drivers are a bit tricky on Linux.  First, can you run
"glxgears" ok?  What is the output of "glxinfo"?  I just installed the
fglrx drivers on my machine and I had to hand-edit the xorg.conf file
to get it working.

What type of ATI video card is it?  What distribution and version of
Linux are you using?

Let's figure this out and be sure to document the results on the
PyMOLWiki for everyone to see.
