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 :: 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.

Code:

Hardware :: Resume Not Working With Radeon Xpress 200M

Aug 22, 2010

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)

Slackware :: Slackware64 13.37 And ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M 5955

May 17, 2011

I've got an older HP Pavilion dv8000 laptop with ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M 5955 video. This worked fine out-of-the-box with 13.1. With 13.37 I can't get KDE desktop effects to work, glxgears reports about 50 fps, and the system can suspend but not resume. I have no xorg.conf at all. Here is the glxinfo and current Xorg log. Just to note, this is with Slackware64 13.37 with the multilib stuff installed.

Debian Hardware :: Video Acceleration For Xpress 200M?

Mar 13, 2010

I installed Lenny on my HP/Compaq nx6125 (the Sempron 32 bit model). Although X is running OK, I can't get video acceleration working. Games like Nexuiz are unusable, and programs like Stellarium and Google Earth simply fail to load. i attached some information below.

Currently, I had the free radeon driver installed. The non-free fglxr drivers are available, but I read that they do not support old chipsets like the 200M. I would like to know some pointers or instructions on how to get acceleration working. Most of the information I read seems to be outdated.

tommy@tardis:~$ glxgears -info
Warning, xpress200 detected.

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...

Ubuntu :: 8.10 And 10.10 With ATI Radeon Xpress 1100?

Dec 1, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Radeon Xpress 200 With Lucid?

May 29, 2010

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?

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?

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Screen Distortions/flickering With 3d Apps Ati Radeon Xpress 1100 On Kubuntu 9.04

Jan 12, 2010

i installed kubuntu 9.04 yesterday and updated it with everything that was available, i have ati radeon xpress 1100 and i got everything running fine including kwin effects but i have a small problem i cant figure out how to fix:

When i run glxgears and put any window on top of it, i can still see the 3d gears rolling and i think this same problem is responsible for occasional artifacts on the screen. Its a very minor problem but i would like to see if fixed because i cannot use google earth properly, it seems that any 3d application likes to be focused on the screen, its like they flicker while being overlaid on top of everything.

Also i read the countless threads here complaining about not being able to use fglrx etc because of updated xorg. Well the reason im using 9.04 is because my wireless card alfa awus036h does not work with kernel > 2.6.31 and i have already tried kubuntu 9.10 on this laptop i wasnt having any problem with the display. All the kwin effects ran fine and no distortions of any kind. Seems there is some bug in 9.04.

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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Kde Won't Start With Radeon Driver

Nov 11, 2010

I got 11.3 64-bit installed properly the first time around and working with a Radeon HD4350. I noticed X to be somewhat sluggish on certain apps under KDE so a couple of days ago I tried to install the Catalyst 10.10 tool from the unofficial repository. I didn't like it and uninstalled it.

After some research it turned out that the proper driver is radeon so I uninstalled the radeonhd driver and rebooted hoping Xorg will pick up the radeon driver automatically as it is included with my kernel. Didn't work and I couldn't even get past the failsafe login screen. Regular boot doesn't even get to the login screen. Just hangs and won't respond to any keyboard commands.

I followed the instruction at this SDB Configuring graphics cards in openSUSE 11.3 using the ATI Xorg -configure option from level 3 console and creating a radeon xorg.conf file. It all works to the point of "startx" as regular user which just brings me back to console. Rebooting and does the same things as before under failsafe and regular. Even nomodeset doesn't help. The output error from startx in failsafe console mode is the following:

Code:

Could not open library ksmserver: Cannot load library /usr/lib64/libkdeinit4_ksmserver.so (libatiuki.so.1: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory) reinstalling is not an option as I have a lot of custom stuff on this box.

Debian Hardware :: X Doesn't Start With Radeon 9200

Mar 11, 2011

I changed my graphics card from Nvidia GeForce 2 MX200 (drivers I used were nouveau) to ATI Radeon 9200SE (now drivers should be radeon). Unfortunately I couldn't get X to start. It leaves me to black screen with white cursor blinking. Both cards are AGP on old Slot 1 motherboard. Reason for change was that GeForce didn't support interlacing on VGA. There are no updates installed to Debian (Squeeze), because there is no internet connection on this computer currently. I tried few things but they didn't work:

* I tried to reconfigure xserver-xorg, didn't help
* I tried to make xorg.conf with X -configure and then moved it to correct place, didn't help
* I tried radeon.modeset=0 option, but it didn't help, I had some other problems with this but I think it's not important (I'll tell later if needed)

I tested Fedora 15 Alpha XFCE LiveCD, but it didn't boot because of my CPU I guess (VIA C3 1 GHz, Nehalem core). I also tested Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD, but it told that there was an error with radeon and low graphics mode is needed or something like that. So it was as bad as Debian. I took few logs and stuff to pastebin.

Xorg.0.log

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Start Kde After Installing ATI Radeon 3450

Aug 23, 2010

I can't get kde to start. I boot through the blue ubuntu 10.04 splash screen normally, so my video card is putting out something, but then i drop into a tty terminal. I log on ok, but when i do startkde from the command line i get a message saying can't connect to xserver, when i do startx, i get these errors: (i can't stuff them here cuz i don't have a mouse or a cut and paste ability)EE) NVIDIA:

Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module.
.
.
EE) No drivers available.

But here's the backstory: I have a ASUS M3N78 PRO MB with an on board Nvidia GeForce 8300 graphics capability. It was intermittently failing, so i disconnected it put in an ATI RADEON PowerColor HD 3450 graphics card, and then my problems started. Seems to me I must have the Nvidia driver since i can boot to KDE fine using the Nvidia onboard analog output (at least some of the time).

Supposedly Lucid Lynx has the ATI drivers for my card preinstalled, plus the new card does drive the splash screen. Is there some clash in some script between the Nvidia on the MB and my ATI Card? I upgraded to GRUB2, reconfigured xserver-xorg, tried to run jockey from the command line and failed, tried sudo nvidia-xconfig. Nothing changed anything.

Fedora Hardware :: Replacing Radeon 9550 With Radeon X1300/X1550 - Low FPS

Apr 4, 2010

I replaced an ATI Radeon 9550 with a Radeon X1300/X1550, in hopes of better performance.

My System: P4@3GHz, 1.5Gb RAM, Fedora 12, kernel 2.6.32.10-90.fc12.

Faults: Screen refresh is extremely low. Glxgears outputs 25 FPS. Dragging windows around is sometimes really slow.

What I did so far, in hope of fixing it:

1. Installed 'system-config-display', for providing an xorg.conf
2. Did: yum --enablerepo=rawhide update mesa-dri-drivers-experimental mesa*, fixing this, but to no avail...

I cannot find any errors in the log...I don't know what to do...

I am posting my Xorg.conf, Xorg.0.log and Glxinfo through links to pastebin.com

POST UPDATE:

When running GlxGears, I get a bit of motion, and then the gears freeze for 1 second. And this goes on and on. But...if I move the mouse around, I get 1100FPS!

Now I messed a bit with xorg.conf and the "SWCursor" Option, but the above happens when this option is on "true". On "false" there is no 1100FPS, only the freezing loop...

I would like to boot directly from an external hard disk to improve performance over my internal notebook hard disk. My notebook has no native eSata jack but a pci express card.

As my BIOS doesn't support the card on boot time so no way directly booting it.

My question is, is it possible to work around this issue by using an USB stick or similar with a boot loader like grub and if so, will this only work for Linux or Windows as well?
