Yesterday, after my nVidia 6600GT left its last breath I had to revive somehow my Ubuntu box. So I used the next available card I had at my disposal, a Radeon X1300/1550 (RV516).What I have done so far:
1. Using 2.6.35-48 generic (recovery) bootup, I managed to fire up the failsafeX.
2. I used this guide to purge Nvidia leftovers.
3. I used this RadeonDriver guide to install the OpenSource Radeon driver.
When I try to boot using the normal choice on GRUB (kernel2.6.35-28-generic) , all I get is a console (no X).Right now I am running X through Recovery boot, and my lsmod shows this:
From looking at beaucoup posts, it appears I'm SOL trying to use the Linux drivers provided by AMD (See url.terminal command line "sh ./ati-driver-installer-9.2-x86.x86_64.run". Since I keep getting an error message saying the file can't be opened either as root or using sudo I guess there's no reason to continue.Anyway, I have my PC displaying on a CRT thru a s-video connection. The screen is overscanned, that is, part of both the left and right sides are not visible. That is why I wanted to load the Radeon drivers & Catalyst Control Center so I could shrink the screen width.Question: Should I keep trying to open the ATI file? SHould I install the Open Source ATI driver? Should I give up and try to find a nVidia AGP 8X card?
I have an ATI radeon x1300 graphics card on my Toshiba Satellite A100 P542 laptop. I am new to ubuntu. On installation, I was pleased with the mac feel as I use mac at my home. I just cant get the card to work. In the hardware options, my card isn't displayed in proprietary thingy.
I later realised that my graphic driver is no longer supported by ATI and there are no official drivers. So I tried all the alternatives available in Ubuntu software centre. I currently have everything related to ATI, fglrx, xorg etc installed. But seems like all these things are of no use, as my graphics driver still isn't recognized and I cant use Compiz fusion. Leave alone compiz fusion I cannot run good quality videos. The screen gets sluggish when I do that.
Im having some issues installing the ATI Radeon Drivers. The card is a Radeon 9550

Using this video card but unable to find the setting for it in the options. I am using a generic VGA setting right now and it's getting less than optimum resolution. What's the proper setting for this card?

I was looking at purchasing a radeon x1300 for a multimedia pc for my lounge and was wondering if anyone knew whether hardware video acceleration with this card was supported with ubuntu? I read that on the ati website that it does support mpeg2,4, etc video acceleration,but didn't know if this was so for ubuntu. I have a few bluray quality movies that I would be interested in playing, so hardware video acceleration is a must.
I am running a 2.7Gh with 2G ram with an ATI X1300/1550 Radeon Card and running with dual monitors. I had the monitors functioning in Linux Mint but it was an older driver version and it was slow. I was reading about the Ubuntu Maverick 32bit and fresh installed it I have just installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick 32bit. Everything that I have found on here concerning ATI and fglxr has not worked.
i have a intermitant problem with my ATI radeo 9550 .fgl_glxgears work once on two .
When it don't work in the kernel log I find :

Can anyone help with me configure my dual-screen monitors for rotation? I have xrandr 1.1. Have tried various approaches, nothing takes. I can't even get the xrandr options to show up in KDE's Display control panel.

I been searching for months on how to get the s-video to work on my pci VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M7 LW [Radeon Mobility 7500] card. I found a site with instructions.
This is how I got it to work.
I install Debian 5.0 Lenny Desktop
added the Driver "radeon" to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file
This work and I was able to use my tv as a monitor however when I try to play a video file from totem or vlc all I could get was audio with no video; These files work and played fine in the CRT monitor.
I am having the same problem, as soon as X tries to load my screen just goes blank. I have an ATI Radeon 9550. At first I tried switching between VGA and DVI as well but upon ruling that out, I switch to my on-board video card and that is working thus far, but I'm trying very hard to figure out a way to be able to switch back. Anyways I'll check back in later on if I have any new information I will post.
Desktop Effects could not be enabled. Also, I'm not having any luck installing Catalyst drivers. After installing Catalyst driver for the right kernel version, Xorg goes corrupt when starting up.Kernel: 18.104.22.168-64.fc11.i686.PAEVideo card: ATI Technologies Inc Mobility Radeon HD 3450$ glxinfo | grep renderdirect rendering: YesOpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
Long time reader, first time poster to the forums. I have installed Fedora 12 onto a desktop here. Fresh install and fully updated as of today. In this system there is a radeon 7000 graphics card that Fedora set up dual display for me. This is working fine but unfortunately im seeing a problem with the top and bottom of one of the displays.
Please see the problem here: [URL]... The mouse will go underneath or above the areas i have pointed to. Any ideas what is wrong? In fedora 9, 10, 11 this was all working fine but i did have to use xrandr manually to get dual display working. Edit: Update:
I dd not mention that i kept my home directory. On futher inspection it seems that the issue is because of a .folder in my home directory that was backed up and restored on the fresh install. To check this i added a new user to the system and logged in with a fresh home directory. Does anyone know which folder or file this setting this is stored? I tried logging out, moving .gconf .gconfd .gnome2 .gnome2_private and the .gtk folders to another location then logged in to no avail.
If I suspend my notebook it starts the usual slow orange blinking indicating the suspend mode got reached. There is also evidence in the various log files that this works. If I try to resume it hangs a for 3 seconds and then I get the hdd-password screen from my bios and the notebook boots from zero. I couldn't find anything in /var/log/messages nor dmesg. If I first boot to windows (grub 2nd partition) and then restart and boot to linux, all the suspend works fine
I downloaded the Fedora 11 KDE LiveCD'm having some troubles on installation/initialization of the system. The livecd boots fine, but when X is started, the notebook freezes. If I delete the option 'rhgb' in the boot options of the livecd, it stops in the middle of the boot process. I deleted the 'quiet' option, and saw the notebook hangs just after the load of the drm module. I tried too with the optionnomodeset' and the option 'nomodeset' without 'rhgb', but I can't get into X. But if I use 'xdriver=vesa' in the boot options, the system starts normally and X starts normally too. So I used xdriver=vesa, and installed fedora on my notebook. But when I boot the newly installed system, it goes to a kernel panic, after the load of the drm module... The installed system behaves as the livecd
Fully updated F11, video card sapphire radeon atlantis 9200. Xorg keeps crashing randomly and kicks me out to the F11 login screen, sometimes when I try to close a window, other times just by itself.From /var/log/messages at the exact time of the crash:
kernel: Xorg: segfault at 70c0b30 ip 049de1de sp bfaf0bac error 4 in libgcc_s-4.4.0-20090506.so.1[49bd000+2a000] gnome-session: WARNING: Detected that screensaver has left the bus
Whenever I try going into "Desktop effects" it says: Accelerated 3D graphics is not available Desktop effects require hardware 3D support. I'm guessing this is a driver issue? I tried installing a driver for it, I think it was Catalyst but it didn't really work.
I have been running F12 w/ an Nvidia board (GE Force 5200) for some time now. I installed and configured that board as per the instructions on this forum (very good ones too!) and have had no problems, other than it would not connect directly to a digital/HDMI port, nor would it do vdpau, since it was an older card.
But now, I have a Radeon VisionTek 1550, that has dual outputs, one of which is DVI-D, and I have an adapter to HDMI that actually works well.
I have managed to remove most of the nvidia stuff from F12, in particular the kernel module. But I keep finding various libs getting loaded that are NVidia based. In particular, with xbmc it is looking for OpenGL rendering, and finds an NVidia version.
Sorry for the long diatribe, but how to I get rid of all of these references completely, without reinstalling fedora from scratch?
Also, another question about the radeon configuration: how do I enable and configure radeon's theatre mode via xorg.conf? FWIW: if I run aticonfig I get "no card found".
Few week back I downloaded this driver ati-driver-installer-10-12-x86.x86_64 from AMD/ATI. Everything when ok then I decided to reboot f@@@@K the system up kept rebooting all the time so I did a fresh install again and downloaded the Driver again but this time I need QA. Is this driver will solve my issue of Accelerated 3D graphics is not available? Will this mess everything up again? If so how can I recover without having to do a fresh install?
I just installed the propretary driver for my graphics card, that I could excellerate my gfx.
I tried working with the ATI CCC, and it can't run because of my graphics configuration. It says to run aticonfig. I do, and I don't get anything helpful. It needs an argument. I tried --initial, but it can't find my Xorg config in the standard path.
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.
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?
