Fedora Hardware :: Install Ati Display Card Driver - Ati Radeon Hd 6370M ?
Jun 14, 2011
The display card of my notebook is ATI rd 6370m ,the OS is fedora14. After I installed the driver download from ATI web site, it says that my computer can only run 2D can't run 3D. I want to know if some one used the same card with me in fedora14 has run 3D sussesfully? After the installlation I run "#aticonfig" it says "can't find the adaper".
I was trying to install this driver of ATI Radeon HD 6370M but i can't do that it works. I googled and visited a lot of pages and I think that I saw a post on this forum talking about a problem like mine. I follow this guide too: [URL] I only want the driver to run gnome3.
I tried to install the driver using the easy and hard way, but unfortunately I couldn't install it. When the file manager opens up through terminal after I type in the command using super user mode, I select the downloaded file and it opens it up in kwrite.
I'm trying to install the driver for my ATI Radeon X1600 Series video card. I got the driver from the ATI site. Heres the link: [URL]... I'm using 10.04 LTS. I have attached a screenshot of the message I get when I run the installer.
Am trying to install the correct driver for my RV710 Radeon HD4350 grahics card.which version out of these two I should install: * x11-video-fglrxG02 (for HD2000 series and later) * x11-video-fglrxG01 (for Radeon 9500 - X1900)
The last few weeks I have been dual monitoring from my lcd monitor to my hdtv. LCD was connected via vga and my tv via hdmi. To my knowledge, my pc has two graphic cards, both ATI Radeons. One I believe is on the mother board, ATI Radeon 4200HD series, and the other is in a PCI slot ATI Radeon 5600HD series. I think that when I had it dual monitored the tv was connected via 4200HD and LCD via 5600HD (could be wrong).
What I Did: Everything was working fine (i was mainly just using the HDTV as my only monitor and main monitor). As you can guess I was gaming on the hdtv, but I was not satisfied with the slight lag I felt. So I looked at forums to see what I could do and they mostly said 1) change settings on tv to game mode, 2) turn off vsync on your graphics card. So I did #1, but when I tried to do #2 I could not open my graphics cards "menu" aka CCC aka Catalyst Command Center.
So I read up on why this might happen and they said I should uninstall drivers and reinstall the drivers, so I did this as well (with most current drivers from the AMD site, version 10.9) and still I could not get into the CCC. As I was reading more forums, they were saying the 10.8 version mainly has this problem. So what I did was I downloaded 10.7 (did not install yet) and uninstalled the new 10.9. When I went to reboot the cpu after the uninstall of 10.9 there was no display on my HDTV.
I figured I just need to go back to my LCD which was still hooked up to my cpu. No display there as well. I tried dvi and vga hook ups from the monitor to both graphic cards but nothing worked to get me a display. I also tried my girlfriends monitor, which only has vga, to both graphics card and still nothing worked. So at this point I have NO display. After about an hour of trying different combinations of cords, monitors, plugs, tv's etc.,
I RANDOMLY somehow got a display with my girlfriends monitor vga to the 5600 card (I think). I had to hold the vga cord a certain way on attached to the monitor in order for the display to work. So since I had a display, I quickly installed 10.7. After installation, it did not prompt me to reboot (which I thought was weird) so I just went to properties and tried to change the resolution to the max 1600x something, to see how it looks. The screen went blank and the display never reappeared. Now I basically have NO DISPLAY again.
I`m using a N5010 dell laptop with an Ati Radeon mobility 5650, I tried to install the ati drivers on F14 which caused a black login screen and there is no way to open the console and do anything. On top of that I`m using Ubuntus Grub2 so I`m practically stuck.
I am setting up a system that I was recently given and am having some problems with the ATI card configuration/driver (I think).
System is P4 3.0Ghz, 1GB RAM, 200GB SATA with new full install of Slackware 13, Fluxbox WM/DE.
Code: lspci lines:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV410 [Radeon X700 Pro (PCIE)] 01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV410 [Radeon X700 Pro (PCIE)] (Secondary) I have read a lot of things that seem confusing to me, but I have set it up mostly with info from slackwiki.org, and after reading various threads here at LQ.
I am using an xorg.conf created with Xorg -configure, with the radeon driver and have added the DRI section and enabled options per the above URL.
First, X starts and I can run glxgears and get a frame rate of 3100+.
But glxinfo seems incorrect:
Code: glxinfo |grep -i render GL_RENDERER: Mesa DRI R300 20060815 x86/MMX/SSE2 TCL I see no "direct rendering: yes" as seems to be required (am I missing something?).
Most things seem to work such as video playback from DVD and Flash.
At boot the vesa modes do not work and I have to use vga=normal, which is no big problem, although a better framebuffer mode would be nice if possible.
But the first big problem I hit is running Blender. When it starts my screen goes blank with just the mouse cursor visible and moving. To get out of this I can kill X or ctl-alt-Fx to get a new login and kill the blender process. Oddly, I found I can also alt-F2 (Open a Run dialog in Fluxbox) which opens with a running Blender behind it - but any attempt to interact with the blender window reverts to the blank screen with mouse cursor.
I believe this to be due to the lack of DRI mostly because of a similar problem once encountered on another system - but am open to other suggestions.
But I think I need to better understand and configure the drivers for this video card before troubleshooting any applications.
So, I guess my questions would be:
1. Is the radeon driver the best choice for this card? 2. Are there advantages/disadvantages to using the ATI driver instead? (Is there a slackbuild for the proprietary driver?) 3. Can someone point me to any better sources of info for ATI cards/drivers used under Slackware?
I recently bought a HIS HD 4670 IceQ card but can't get it to work in openSUSE 11.2 Under Windows the card works fine, so I assume there is no hardware problem. I tried this card in two computers with different mainboards, but it does not work. Several times I reinstalled openSUSE completely from scratch (tried both 32bit and 64bit versions) but no luck. The problem: Right after the installation it uses the radeonhd driver. This basically works, but without 3D (no Tuxracer...) and even 2D is slow (dragging around windows on the desktop is slow, page scrolling in firefox also).
Then I tried to install the ati proprietary driver, both from rpm (the rpm's from the "official" ati repository have a checksum error, as already mentioned in another thread!), and by downloading the driver from AMD and running the install script. The install script seems to work successfully. The kernel module is compiled and loaded. "aticonfig --initial" makes a rudimentary xorg.conf. But then, when starting X, it does not work:
- on one of the 2 tested systems, even kdm does not start, the screen simply stays black with a frozen cursor top left, even CTRL+ALT+backspace doesn't do anything - on the other system, kdm starts and shows the login screen, but when trying to start KDE kwin crashes, and the windows have no title bar (when I googled for this symptome I found lots of people also having this problem...) - trying to configure the system using sax2 didn't help, even sax2 doesn't display properly I have now spent 4 days trying to get this to work and now I'm really tired of those buggy graphics drivers, be it proprietary or open source...
Can anyone recommend me a graphics card that is approximately as powerful as the radeon 4670 (I bought this card because it is said to be the most economical card (both in price and energy consumption) that allows to play Anno 1404 reasonably well on windows), but is known to work in openSUSE 11.2, even in 3D mode (tuxracer...)?
I'm a new Mandriva user,and have no clue about Linux system,but to be honest I don't want to use Windows product anymore. So I got the Mandriva 1 Spring Gnome,and installed it on my DELL Optiplex Desktop,works fine and very fast,therefore I decided to do the same with my Studio XPS 1640,but after I got a dark screen,so I used an external display(My TV) then realized that it doesn't support the video card on it ( ATI Radeon HD4670 ),and I don't know what to do.
After a bit of work I got 3d acceleration (direct rendering) working on my system. Now, whenever I use intensive graphics, (certain screen savers, Google Earth overlay animations) all performs fine for a while (1-2 minutes) and then causes a full system freeze. Only solution at that point is a hard power reboot. I don't know where to look for a solution, since I can not check any diagnostic files when the system is frozen.
System: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.00GHz ATI FireGL V3100 graphics Card OpenSuse 11.4 with radeon driver.
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).
After the "Welcome to Fedora 12!" screen, I then click on either: Install or upgrade an existing system [or] Install system with basic video driver [both display the same following screen and then the machine halt on] Loading vmlinuz . Loading initrd.img . .ready. Probing EDD (edd=off to disable) ... ok The number and cap lock have no responses. When I changed to another display card, it has no problem at all.
I'm a new user of fedora12 and I'm a beginer in Linux, I'll apreciate if someone tell me how to install a driver for my video card (nvidia 9400GT) because when I try desktop effect fedora disply an error "require hardware 3D support" and that tell's me I don't have the appropriate driver.
Can do nothing with the PC. New install of 10.04 and was prompted to install Nvidia driver. Did so. Rebooted, now have nothing except a thin line at top of screen. How can I remove this driver when I see nothing?
I just downloaded ATI Radeon x700 driver from Quote:[URL]..the file name is
ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run I gave permission as Executing file as program. I run as sudo from terminal but I get this error Quote: Error: ./default_policy.sh does not support version default:v2:i686:lib::none:2.6.31-20-generic; make sure that the version is being correctly set by --iscurrentdistro
I've always had and used Ubuntu. When I installed and did not like the stability of a certain version, I just reformatted the partition and used LiveCD. OK, on a virgin SATA, 300-gig partition, I installed 10.04 and that took the ATI Radeon 3rd-party graphics driver. No problem. Then, the family wanted 2 languages on the machine. The German keyboard screwed me in terminal and I wiped out Home and all their data. I used Scalpel to image-carve 300-gig onto a 400-gig partition and tried to re-install Ubuntu 10.10.
The ATI's fglrx will not install, that's the error. That same file prevents upgrades of Ubuntu to current status.
is this thread current for my problem with 10.10? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=651566
Or, do I have that 400-gig with the backup cross-pollinating?
I just installed OpenSUSE 11.2 x86_64 on a new computer with ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card. I have included ati in the update repositories. I saw that x11-video-fglrxG02 and ati-fglrxG02-kmp-desktop are NOT checked, so, I selected both in YAST2, then, OpenSUSE started to download the required files. but, in the middle of downloading, I got a "wrong digest", said that ati-fglrxG02-kmp-desktop has wrong checksum.
I am using Dell studio 1537. I tried to install propitiatory driver for my ati radeon hd3400. After installation and reboot, I got no display and my system rebooted. Now I had just reinstalled fedora11. Any Way to install ATI driver safely?
recently I have downloaded opensuse 11.3.tried to install latest version of graphic driver.but after uncompressing it says:
which: no XFree86 in (/home/muhammad/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin) Error: ./default_policy.sh does not support version default:v2:i686:lib::none:2.6.34-12-desktop:; make sure that the version is being correctly set by --iscurrentdistro Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.fvzKbN
I have installed kernel sources,xorg x11 headers and gcc.
I got given an old (non brand name) laptop and have installed XP and kubuntu 10.04 on it. The graphics card is Radeon Mobility X1600. Kubuntu gets a very strange problem which does not happen in XP:
Although the installation graphics are OK (sort of, there are some strange font irregularities), when it tries to reboot and fire up the graphics all hell breaks loose, the display is broken in two parts and shifted up with the overflowing region coming up from below. I 'm guessing something in the X server is trying to start and failing because when I try to drop to a text terminal (Ctrl-Alt-F<something or other>) I get pages filling up with error messages.
Unfortunately I can't remember what the messages say and I don't want to try to recreate it in a hurry because after this happens, subsequent reboots start the computer in this split screen mode (weirdly omitting the BIOS POST message) and I 'm not sure how to get it fixed, so far removing the battery, reseting the BIOS to default and letting it cool down seem to work, eventually.
Anyway, I figured since XP seems to be fine, it must be a software problem, although I 'm mystified how it persists and jumps between reboots (the split screen persists even all the way to the BIOS menu). I tried getting the driver from the ATI site code...
Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.i3fXeb So, if I can't run the ATI driver, my other option is to run whatever it is that the "Hardware Drivers" KDE menu item runs to get it to sniff out the driver I need. But I can't start an X server so I need to either run whatever it is that runs behind it or get the package I need through apt-get?
I am new to Ubuntu for the most part, but have done a lot of research on this OS. I just freshly installed version 10.10 32 bit, and the first thing I did was follow this tutorial on installing the drivers for my HIS Radeon HD 6850. I really want to get this drivers working so I can use the 3D effects on this OS.
When I type fglrxinfo I receive:
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation) Major opcode of failed request: 136 (GLX) Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString) Serial number of failed request: 14 Current serial number in output stream: 14 When I type aticonfig I get:
aticonfig: No supported adapters detected. The proprietary driver was never installed so I know that driver is not interfering. Originally the aticonfig was not found at all but with a little troubleshooting from the link above It seems to work, but obviously not recognize the card. The card works great on my windows 7 setup. If I can't get this working I may just remove Ubuntu all together, but any help would be amazing!
Card is the Radeon x300 and in the past in a wubi install I installed the propreitary ATI driver. I'd like to do that with this installation too. I've located the proper driver and tried to run in the terminal.
I get this error:
I've read were I have to uninstall the xorg drivers and make a .deb package but idk how to do that.
I have managed to work out how to install my NVidia video card driver. I'm just about to tackle getting the microphone aspect of my sound card in my laptop going. If that goes alright I'd like to install the Wacom drivers for my Cintiq 21ux.
I have sound coming out of my sound card, I just need to put some sound through it (for skype conferences)
Do you where I'd be able to find the right drivers or links to tutoials about or similarto my HP Pavilion dv5 1006tx?It's mainly the sound card and Wacom Cintiq 21ux I'm worried about.
