can you give me more details regarding one of your old posts (see
below). We got ATI FireGL X1/256MB with stereo jack but I cannot get it
to work in stereo under Linux. I got drivers from ATI's web page
(fglrx-glc22-4.2.0-2.9.6.i586.rpm) and they work more or less fine in a
regular mono regime (RH8.0) but I couldn't find anything about how to
enable stereo (from withing XF86Config). I wrote to ATI technical
support and got a reply that their current drivers _do not_ support
stereo and I should wait for the next release.
Any help appreciated,
One other non-related note for those upgrading to RedHat 9 (from RH8.0):
Pymol stopped working after an upgrade because of glut:
ImportError: /usr/lib/libglut.so.3: undefined symbol: XGetExtensionVersion
I asked about it in redhat list and they (a guy from redhat) think it's
only related to systems with proprietary nvidia drivers. Because I got
the same error message on a system without nvidia drivers I don't think
that's the case. I found an 'easy' fix: just downgrade glut to the
version from RedHat 8.0: however I don't really know if this may break

We've had great results with the FireGL series, and the OpenGL
performance of the FireGL X1 is excellent
However, the trick with these cards is to allow ATI's binary driver
compatibility to dictate your choice of Linux distribution and version.
This is fine for new dedicated 3D workstations (read SGI
replacements), but not so good for existing linux setups.
Stereo support is trouble-free.
