Debian :: Which Driver For Mobility Radeon 7500?

Jan 31, 2011

I'd installed Puppy and was very happy with the performance on my laptop, but I decided to switch to Debian because of the ap-get feature. I decided to go with JWM instead of one of the default desktop environments, but now I'm having to configure everything manually, and I'm pretty lost. So far, I've got X and JWM installed (though no graphical login, and have to startx manually).

Priority one is to update the video driver and get the best performance possible. I have an ATI Mobility Radeon 7500. I know the fglrx driver doesn't work with this card, but I don't know which package to install. When I type "apt-get install radeon", it spits out "E: Couldn't find package radeon"

Debian :: Radeon Driver And By Consequence Gdm3 In Wheezy?

May 21, 2011

I want to use the open source radeon driver. My video card is AMD/ATI RADEON HD4850. I want 3D acceleration even if it's inferior to fglrx's although I would like if it exceeded fglrx's performance but the performance of the driver is not the point of this thread. Fortunately, fsck was checking the hard drive upon booting so I had time to write the boot output in this computer which I believe would be of help.

Video card:
Failed to load firmware "radeon/RV770_pfp.bin"
*ERROR* Failed to load firmware!
disabling GPU acceleration

gdm3: rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Failed to request firmware. I attempted to install firmware-linux and do sudo gdm3 but all that did is say gdm3 lasted for 0.x seconds where x changes and it kept re-printing that sentence infinitely. I also rebooted and tried to let gdm3 start itself.

Firstly, I'm assuming the open source driver relies on proprietary firmware. Why is this the case? Secondly, how do I get the radeon/RV770_pfp.bin firmware? Is it not in the firmware-linux package? Why does it matter that GPU acceleration is disabled for loading gdm3? Isn't simple 2D enough? (I'm not saying this because I don't want to have 3D enabled since I do want it enabled but because I would imagine that 2D capabilities are enough to load gdm3). If more information is needed, just ask.

Debian :: Version Of OpenGL Does Radeon Driver Support?

Jun 4, 2011

I have the HD4850 and, I wanted to know if it is possible to use the CLI to see which version of OpenGL is the latest version I can use according to my driver. If it's not possible via the CLI then, what's the next best way? (I can't find a website for the radeon driver listing the latest OpenGL support per supported card).

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 :: Radeon ATI Gives Black Screen, Even With Nonfree-driver?

Jul 15, 2011

The screen goes black while "waiting to populate /dev/"and only by adding acpi=off can I boot into my system, and then I see that I get an error message during boot when "populating /dev/ " that says"fatal error during GPU init", even after I've installed the firmware-linux-nonfree.deb, which is the one for the R300 family, which I'm guessing is the right one, since lspci tells me I have:Radeon IGP 330M/340M/350MI've read the wiki[URL]

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 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.

My /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

I have wheezy up to date and the xserver-xorg-video-radeon package is at version 6.14.2-1. I am using the linux-image-2.6.39-2-amd64 package as well for the kernel. When I boot, it stays on the tty1 console and I can't start gdm3 manually (it also doesn't start automatically).

Debian Configuration :: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 Non-free Driver Installation?

Jun 6, 2011

1- I'm trying to install the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 driver over the non-free repository ...the problem is that until now i didn't found a recent documentation ...and to be honest i don't know which procedure should i use to rightly install the driver .

2- I have two graphic cards (integrated Intel with the i5 processor), and i can't change the default one to the ati! because debian had set the intel card as a native one...! that's why iŽ m wondering if just an installation of the non-free drivers will solve this or not! I think every body will ask me how the lspci output looks like so here is it : 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Core Processor DRAM Controller (rev 02) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Core Processor PCI Express x16 Root Port (rev 02) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) 00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset HECI Controller (rev 06) 00:1a.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset USB2 Enhanced Host Controller (rev 05)00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05)

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).

Debian Configuration :: Radeon DRI Driver, Clicking "Apply" It Fails?

Mar 3, 2011

i couldn't get out after many hours of reading documents/posts/forums etc.

The issue:In Kde 4.4.5, using xorg and radeon opensource driver, i can't set OpenGL for desktop effects. Clicking "Apply" it fails. OpenGL seems corrupted someway. I have to stay on XRender. This is the glxinfo output:

glxinfo | grep OpenGL
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.7.1
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20
OpenGL extensions:

The story:i was running previously kde with nvidia propertary driver and a nvidia board. Then i removed the board for a fault and put a sapphire radeon HD5450. Initially i set up propertary radeon fglrx. At the end, i decided to use the opensource drivers, removed in the best way all fglrx files and links. So i then followed the wiki for reinstall open source radeon drivers, did it many times, also reinstalling xorg with purge, same for libgl1-mesa-xxx etc, but i still cannot use the OpenGL hardware support (should be DRI, that is correctly installed but not loaded).

Seems to be really an opengl corruption, if i disable the check on apply, and select OpenGL rendering, i get a complete blank screen.

Some information of the system:
01:12 ] angelo@angel3 [~] cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor: 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family  : 6

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Driver For Radeon 5850 On 11.3?

Aug 4, 2010

I've installed openSUSE 11.3, and I want to have hardware 3D acceleration on my Radeon 5850. Far as I can tell, I don't have any right now (for example, I installed armagetron and it uses software rendering).

I'm a technical enough user, but I'm new to openSUSE and to Linux, and my previous attempt of installing ATI drivers (proprietary ones on Fedora) resulted in the OS being unable to boot. I figure that asking for directions would help make things work out better this time.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Driver And Radeon 5750

May 13, 2010

I installed Lucid when I had my Nvidia board in the computer. Yesterday I pulled out the nvidia board and installed my new Radeon 5750. Hearing that the Open Source driver is the way to go, I first decided to try that. I edited xorg.conf replacing "nvidia" with "radeon", since this is the module name (right?) but it still doesn't seem to load. Does anyone have an example of what a properly configured xorg.conf is supposed to look like using the ATI Open Source driver? I get X up and running in "low graphics mode", but can never get beyond that.

Trying to turn on window effects causes a "searching for drivers" dialogue to appear and then disappear without success. A quick "glxinfo |grep -i render" indicates that it is indeed in the software mode. I even tried to manually modprobe the radeon module and restart GDM, but still nothing. At first I thought this was a limitation of the Open Source drivers on 5xxx series boards, but this page suggests that it should work in "gold" status. I have since installed FGLX and it is just terribly buggy, so I am hoping to use the Open Source driver.

Ubuntu Installation :: Re-install And The ATI Radeon 3D Driver?

Sep 14, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: No Display After Driver Uninstall - ATI Radeon

Sep 24, 2010

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.

Hardware :: Driver For ATI Radeon Integrated Video?

May 17, 2010

Fedora 12, latest kernel, x86_64.

I have an Asus M4A78L-M motherboard that has integrated ATI Radeon HD3000 video. Should I be looking for a driver specific to the integrated video, or should I be looking for a driver specific to the motherboard? I'm not sure if I should look for something different if the video is integrated onto the motherboard, as opposed to a separate video card. This is what I found: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...5&lang=English

Are there best practices for updating video drivers before I make any changes? I don't want to hose my video.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Screen Rotation With Radeon Driver?

I just replaced my older monitor with a slightly newer, much nicer Dell 1905FP. I need to have it rotated, but I have no clue how to rotate it. I have seen several xorg.conf modifications that are supposed to work for some of the nvidia drivers, but nothing for the generic radeon driver. The radio buttons in SaX2 are grayed out as well. How do I set up X11 to rotate my display? Preferably without installing the other ATi driver, as I have tried before to switch to that one, and have been unsucessfull.
