Debian :: Radeon Xpress 200 Problem On Debian Squeeze - Kernel 2.6.30

Sep 18, 2009

After dist-upgrade a few days ago, X refuses to kick in.

Xorg.0.log reads

Code:

Fatal server error:

no screens found

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support at http://wiki.x.org

Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information. lshw reads that Xpress 200M is claimed by radeonfb driver.

At this moment, no fglrx packages are installed.

System is Toshiba laptop.

I do not think ATI dropped support, however, even without fglrx, nothing works.

Debian Configuration :: ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 Driver In Squeeze?

Mar 4, 2011

Alright, Lenny has a working "fglrx-driver" package for my laptop, but Squeeze does not. Would it be possible to install the one from Lenny on Squeeze since Squeeze has newer libraries and such? I know I can't install new stuff with older libraries, but can I install the old stuff with newer libraries? I am at the end of my rope here! I mean ATI sucks and we all know this, but I've always found a Linux/open-source alternative that worked, until Squeeze.

Debian :: ATI Radeon Xpress 200 ?

Dec 17, 2009

I have been using Debian for a few weeks now (love it, besides it being a little bulky). and have everything going besides wireless and my graphics card, the former being less important to me. I haven't had any problems running Debian without a graphics card, but I know I will need it to play games, configure a 3d desktop if I choose, etc...

Hardware :: Debian Squeeze And ATI Radeon X1950?

Jul 22, 2010

Debian Squeeze on my computer with AMD Athlon XP 2500+ CPU and Radeon X1950 and I'm struggling to make graphics drivers work.I've learned so far that it is hard to install proprietary drivers because Catalyst 9.3 doesn't support Squeeze. When I run./ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run --buildandinstallpkg Debian/testingI get this error: 'Build Option --buildandinstallpkg not supported currently by packager' and I couldn't find any information on this.Without this option it doesn't work either.Then I tried to make open drivers work, so I made sure that xserver-xorg-video-radeon is installed and I checked /var/log/Xorg.0.log.It contains two errors:

(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory
(EE) RADEON(0): [dri] RADEONDRIGetVersion failed because of a version mismatch.
[dri] This chipset requires a kernel module version of 1.17.0,

Debian :: Installing ATI Radeon HD 5700 Driver On Squeeze 6.0.1

Jul 19, 2011

I've been on numerous websites--with tutorials telling how to install the ATI drivers, I'm running Squeeze 6.0.1 Gnome amd64, the tutorial I am using is located at the ATIProprietary Debian Wiki [URL] when I try the following:
sudo apt-get install fakeroot debhelper build-essential libstdc++5

I get this:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package fakeroot is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source.

Package debhelper is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
E: Package 'fakeroot' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'debhelper' has no installation candidate
E: Unable to locate package build-essentials
E: Unable to locate package libstdc++5
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libstdc++5'

I have a feeling that apt-get is not searching the web, yet searching a CD perhaps? Because when I've tried the apt-get update, I get the following:
Ign cdrom://[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.0 _Squeeze_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20110324-08:54] squeeze Release.gpg
Media change: please insert the disc labeled
'Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.0 _Squeeze_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20110324-08:54'
in the drive '/media/cdrom/' and press enter

After doing that, nothing happens, and my apt-get still doesn't work, everything I try and install like build-essential says it's not found. Also when I
su
nano /ect/apt/sources.lst
the list in nano is empty???

I'm currently running a dual boot with windows xp/debian but as soon as I can get everything working, I'm going to turn this into a full linux system. Also my sound doesn't work, but my sound is HD sound that goes via the video card, I have it hooked up HDMI to my LG tv/monitor, sound works fine on xp. I think once I get the video card drivers installed it should possibly fix my sound issues at the same time.

Debian Installation :: Squeeze Boot Stalls / Radeon Mobility

May 23, 2011

I have just installed Squeeze on my laptap with a radeon mobility equipped laptop. When it boots, I see the following message:r600_cp: Failed to load firmware "radeon/RV635_pfp.bin".and some others, too, but it stalls at that point, and I cannot use CTRL-ALT-F2 to get a text-based prompt - in fact, I can only seem to get it back with a ALT-SYSRQ (R-E-I-S-V-B) sequence to force a reboot. It is a multi-boot system, with a windows partition, Ubuntu partition, and the new Debian partition. The Ubuntu and Windows partitions will still boot, only the Debian stalls.

When I boot into Ubuntu, I can see the Debian partition, and can see (for instance) the /var/boot/dmesg file, but it only says:"(Nothing has been logged yet.)"So, being new to debian itself (even though, I know, that Ubuntu has a debian base), how can I make it boot without X, which is I presume, the center of the difficulty? Can I change some file on the debian partition using Ubuntu to get the debian partition to boot in text only mode, and then try to fix the radeon driver?

Alternatively, can I put the proper files for the radeon driver *from* the Ubuntu partition *to* the debian partition and expect it to load and boot correctly? I did, at one point, download and install the proprietary ATI driver files on Ubuntu, so can I put them in a proper place on the debian install?

Debian Hardware :: ATI Radeon HD3200 And Official Driver In Squeeze?

Apr 5, 2010

I am using the latest squeeze (2.6.32-6 kernel) on a Thinkpad X100e.Most things works fine (after some tinkering though) but I cannot install the official ATI driver.I have tried:1) Downloaded the latest official drivers from ATI's site.a) If I choose install, it says that everything works but the driver is not actually installed. After reboot I don't have X anymoreb) If I choose build packages for Debian testing, the packages are not built. 2) Downloaded the not so latest official drivers. Same as in case 1)3) Tried to install them with the sgfxi script. The script reports a success but still after a reboot, I have no X.4) Tried to apt-get install fglrx-driver package from sid. Everything installs fine, after reboot I have X but no 3d acceleration.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze: Suspend/hibernate Resume Fails With Radeon Graphics

Aug 6, 2010

I am running Squeeze on an older Compaq EVO laptop with radeon graphics.

A few months ago, after an upgrade, suspend and hibernate stopped working. The suspend or hibernate worked fine, but the resume just hung with a black screen. I finally got around to looking into it and found a workaround.

The workaround is to disable Kernel Mode Setting for the radeon. This can be done by adding the boot parameter "radeon.modeset=0" or by editing /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf so that it includes the line "options radeon modeset=0".

If you are interested in the details, you can search for problem reports related to radeon kernel mode setting.

Debian Hardware :: Radeon X1050 - Is This Card Supported In Squeeze By Either The Non-free Firmware Or The Proprietary Driver

Jan 13, 2011

Is this card supported in Squeeze by either the non-free firmware or the proprietary driver? I just got one to stick into an older box that will be going to a college girl that wants the 3D desktop in KDE. The built-in video was a joke and wouldn't even work without compositing. It was one of those crappy, non-standard pieces of crap known as a "Unichrome" (not the pro).

I have an Aspire 5100 with ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 and have been happily running Ubuntu 8.10 until now when support has ended. I continued with 8.10 because the graphics have been fine with my system.I also have 10.10 installed and apart from the graphics, I would have no problem changing/upgrading.The problem is the glare, after a while it is very hard to work on.Is there anything I can do that's not to technical to reduce the glare.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on a PC with the integrated Radeon X200 card. Currently, I have the free Radeon drivers, but they're either awful or aren't working properly. I get some wonky graphics errors, and any 3D game crashes as soon as the 3D graphics are to be displayed.

My card is no longer supported by fglrx. What can I do?

Hardware :: Can't Start X On Radeon Xpress 200M

Aug 22, 2010

I can usually solve this type of problem myself, but this time around I'm totally stumped. Can anyone lend a hand? A little background: I have an HP Pavilion ZV6233NR with no screen installed, connected through the VGA to my LCD TV. This is a somewhat older desktop replacement laptop. I have repurposed it to run as both a server and a media center (e.g. it connects to my TV). I'm upgrading from Debian Etch to Debian Squeeze (never installed Lenny). With Etch, I used the proprietary fglrx driver, however the fglrx package in Squeeze doesn't support such old hardware (obviously), but the new foss radeon driver does.

The problem: First, suppose I run X with no arguments, the (EE) and (WW) lines in /var/log/Xorg.0.log read (excluding missing font files):

(WW) Falling back to old probe method for vesa
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for fbdev
(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory

[code]....

I've attached the full Xorg.0.log for that second case (radeon driver using the conf file), in case that helps. Three things I've tried (but for all I know bungled, test me if you think I might have):Fresh installation from the CD. (In case I had left over fglrx stuff lying around.) Horizontal and vertical refresh rates for the screen (although I didn't actually look them up in the LCD screen's manual).
Setting modes in the screen section to restrict the resolution and/or color depth.

Hardware :: 3d Won't Initialize With Radeon 5470 And Debian Lenny With Custom Kernel

May 13, 2010

I recently got a new dell studio 1558 with radeon hd 5470 video card. So far have had lot of small problems and such but been able to fix the via google and a lil luck but now I'm stumped with this one and decided to try and turn here for some possible help. Now on to the details.

Distro - Debian lenny with 2.6.33.3 custom kernel propriatory lgrfx 10.4 drivers installed direct from ati (installed no problem)after compiling the kernel and installing the drivers from ATI my card IS recognized and X will boot up with the proper resolution, but that's where all the problems start. I can no longer switch to virtual terminals (ctrl-alt-F1,F2,F3,F4 etc) and graphics performance in X is extremely poor due to the fact that 3D fails to initialize, and catalyst control fails to load (it tries to but then just disappears)

Debian Configuration :: Kernel BUG In Squeeze 2.6.32-5-686 ?

Oct 21, 2010

I installed Debian Squeeze from a net install to a raid 1 array. I have been having a lot of troubles related to being able to write to one or more of the mounted drives - even touch gives me errors.

The most interesting line from dmesg is:

Here is the full output from dmesg:

I found a thread that indicated that this bug was fixed in the next kernel version: 2.6.32-6. I am willing to upgrade the kernel to get rid of my problems. Is a squeeze kernel at 2.6.32-6 or higher available? If so, where? I have not compiled my own kernel, and am not very interested in getting into that.

Debian :: Kernel Cannot Be Found On Squeeze DVD?

Jun 6, 2011

I'm attempting to dual boot my computer with Slackware, Debian and Windows. I've installed Lilo to the mbr from Slackware, i've edited my lilo.conf file so I can boot Debian. When I boot debian though, it says it's boot kernel 2.6.37 which is the slackware kernael it fails to load the modules. I think my problem is in the lilo.conf file in the debian line, "image = /boot/vmlinuz", if I've understood correctly I should put the debian kernals name after that line, I've done as I saw on the internet, but it comes up with, "kernel can not be found" or something similar to that. I think it's looking for it in a slackware directory. Is there a place on the debian dvds (i've all eight) I can get the kernel?

Fedora :: Firefox 3.5 Locking F11 With Amd Radeon Xpress 200 Chipset?

Aug 2, 2009

I'm still having problems with firefox 3.5 on Fedora 11. My computer freezes; and it takes a power-off reset to unlock it. Keyboard and display are unresponsive (x-server crash). It crashes even with Firefox 3.5 running in safe mode.

Configuration:

Hardware:ATI Radeon´┐Ż XPRESS 200 Chipset
Kernel: 2.6.29.6-217.2.3.fc11.i586 #1 SMP i686 athlon i386
firefox.i586 3.5.1-3.fc11
flash-plugin.i386 10.0.32.18-release @adobe-linux-i386

Koji was used to update kernel and firefox. Thanks to wangmaster and other members, I was able to install Firefox 3.0.12, which is run using a different profile. Do I need a debug version of Firefox for a dump? Do I need to send this AMD machine to the landfill or North Carolina?

Hardware :: ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M - Ubuntu Maverick

Apr 9, 2011

I have a problem with my video card since I installed Ubuntu Maverick. Compiz is working, I have Desktop effects and everything but.. i have a lot of troubles too. I can't watch full size video in ..... (it's very slow or totally freezing every time i try fullscreen option). Google Earth working, but when zoomed too much (to see map closer), i am seeing a lot of lines and strange pixels.

Everything was working good on CentOS, but after getting into Ubuntu.. something went wrong. I think the problems are coming from the drivers.

I have this drivers installed:

Code:

I followed this guide - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver - for installing everything again, and I also added the Xorg Edgers PPA [url]. When I have xserver-xorg-video-radeon & ati drivers installed, my system have all the problems listed above and don't have 3d acceleration (which I need a lot for running Cedega and VMWare).

This is output from glxgears (while having the drivers installed)

Code:

And this is glxinfo in verbose mode:

Code:

(notice I have Direct Rendering, but not 3d acceleration, since it have troubles with the driver.. but the file is in the same folder it's searching for it)

When I remove them from the system (purge), and I use only the Edgers PPA and:

Code:

I can watch full size video at ....., my computer hibernates and wakes up after (which is causing a lot of problems if I'm using the xorg-ati & radeon, laptop freezes requiring hard restart). I can use Google Earth without having troubles, but.. still can't run Cedega and VM, because I don't pass the tests for 3d acceleration.

This is output of my glxgears & glxinfo (in verbose) after removing the drivers and restarting X.

Hardware :: Resume Not Working With Radeon Xpress 200M

i have this video card 01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RC410 [Radeon Xpress 200M] IT suspends but it looks on resume with the opensource radeon driver. It never worked with the open source driver for me. It worked with the proprietary driver but those drivers are no longer compatible with the new xorg(catalyst/fglrx worked in ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10 but no high1er and in debian lenny) My question is:If you have this card and manage to make it resume on a recent distribution please tell me if you did something to make it work or it just worked.

P.S I do not use xorg.conf and i have only open source driver installed,currently i have a ubuntu and a kubuntu installed on this laptop, i did not tried any fix in the present because i tried them before so thuis operating systems are clean(nothing wrong with the libs or configs)

- how to prevent that future automatic updates "upgrade" me again to the non-working version?

Debian Configuration :: Kernel Version In Squeeze ?

Mar 15, 2011

Laptop Amilo L1300, installed Debian Squeeze from netinstall from scratch a month ago. Installed Xfce as a DE afterwards.

This laptop usually has problem with: ACPI, Wifi and tons of other stuff usually Kernel related and is really picky about kernel version!

Now - with Lenny it worked without problems, but it had gnome and ext3 so I took a gamble and did a fresh install of Squeeze with Xfce with Ext4 filesystem and overall performance of the computer was faster and more responsive.

For wireless I have to use[url]

It all worked 100% until a week ago (roughly).

I do not use synaptic nor update manager, so I updated the system via terminal (as root of course) "apt-get update" and "apt-get upgrade". And I noticed it will upgrade kernel. I went through the upgrade process, as I thought it's all a 2.6.32-5-686 kernel version and it will not brake anything since it IS a stable branch of Debian and it will not install new kernel. Of course it did not install 2.6.34 or anything like that...

After the update I began experiencing problems, first with mouse pointer, it became invisible and goes back visible and resume from suspend, also wireless randomly disconnects and sometimes won't reconnect to wifi network, as I found out it's all kernel related problems (googled it up). I do not know how to go back to previous kernel version, since in Grub2 menu it only points to one and only kernel version, as I reckon it's the same version but with bugfixes? Or should I say buy UNfixes. I tried using a liquorix kernel 2.6.32 but as he works, has problem with ACPI as I presume since it freezes the system on random occasions.

Please, what EXACT version of kernel was in Squeeze like 3 weeks ago? And how can install that particular version of kernel, since it was the only one that worked besides the one from Lenny.

"uname -r" says: 2.6.32-5-686

That's what it always said.

Is it possible I had, dunno 2.6.32.28 and it was updated to, dunno, 2.6.32.29 or some later one?

I managed to google up this:[url]

And how can I go back to 2.6.32.28 kernel for instance?

Should I use some of the snapshots from [url]?
