Debian Configuration :: Installing Radeon Drivers For Wheezy?
May 27, 2011
I need some help installing the driver. I am very noob. so when I try to build a deb file with sh ati-driver-installer-11-5-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Debian/testing
# sh ati-driver-installer-11-5-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Debian/testing
Created directory fglrx-install.7aYYig
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing ATI Catalyst(TM) Proprietary Driver-
I need to install wheezy nvidia-graphics-drivers because my video card (geforce GT 425m) isnt supported on the squeezy version. I downloaded the wheezy source code and built it on my squeezy system, some .deb files where created, the problem is I dont know which of those to install, these are the files:
I have an Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG. I'm running Wheezy and I can't seem to get switcheroo working correctly. I was running Squeeze, then upgraded to Wheezy because it had a kernel over 2.6.33 with switcheroo built in. Below is the layout of my build...
(~)$ uname -a Linux skipjack-debian 2.6.38-2-686 #1 SMP Thu Apr 7 05:24:21 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux (~)$ lspci | grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 18) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Redwood [Radeon HD 5600 Series]
I just built myself a new 64bit computer, but I'm having a little trouble getting it going. At first I put windows 7 on it, but it requires 1gb of RAM just to run it's basic programs, and it's all bogged down with all these useless programs, and when I tried to turn off some programs to make it faster, half my stuff stopped working all together, because they required all these programs just to run other programs, it's just absolutely ridiculous.
So I looked into Linux, and after asking around a bit, I installed Debian. It's exactly what I want in an operating system, completely customizable, but I guess I've been spoiled by microsoft and I'm not that good with all the command lines and configuring the kernel.
Righty now I'm trying to get my video card going, but I can't even figure out how to get the drivers installed. I went to amd.com and got the drivers, but when I try to just put them in the bin, but it keeps telling me I don't have administrator priveleges, but I do. Then I tried following this manual wiki.debian.org/Manual-Howto#Atibinarydriver]Manual-Howto - Debian Wiki , but I got stuck at the part where it tells me to copy and edit my xorg.config. When I go to copy, it tells me the directory doesn't exist, but it does. And when I go to edit the xorg.config, it tells me I don't have priveleges again.
So is there any easy way to get my video card installed, or do I really have to create this new kernel and go through this whole long process? My motherboard has hybrid crossfire technology, am I able to use that with debian?
Here is what I have in my comp, in case the info is needed.
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.
I have Debian WHeezy 7.7 KDE, card Radeon 5000 series. Card has HDMI, video on HDMI working, but sound not working. System see sound device, but if I select this and try to play music then no sound. I tried many things. Below is some lists.
I just set up a computer with debian (im no linux expert) and now i have trouble with getting the packages for my graphics card (its an RV635)
Im tried to do it like this page says: [URL]....
However when i try to Code: Select allapt-get update he throws an error:
W: Fehlschlag beim Holen von http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/dists/jessie/Release Erwarteter Eintrag ¬Ľnonfree/binary-amd64/Packages¬ę konnte in Release-Datei nicht gefunden werden (falscher Eintrag in sources.list oder missgebildete Datei)
I recently switched over one of my Ubuntu machines to Debian Wheezy. On the Ubuntu system I was able to get the HDMI audio working by adding radeon.audio=1 to grub. I've tried this on this system to no avail. The fglrx-legacy-driver causes underscan and I'd like to avoid it if possible for convenience.
Things I've tried:
fglrx-legacy-driver - Introduced underscan while not solving the problemradeon.audio=1 in grub boot line - No effectGoogling for several hours - There's a lot of topics about this, but most are old and irrelevant, and the ones that are current enough didn't solve my issue.Yelling at it - HDD light blinked a few times, no change lspci shows
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).
I just installed debian (Jessie) in my computer and tried to install Nvidia drivers. This is a task i have done many times and never got a problem but today...
Here you have my output...
X.Org X Server 184.108.40.2061 (1.16.3 RC 1) Release Date: 2014-12-09 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: Linux 3.2.0-4-amd64 x86_64 Debian Current Operating System: Linux PC-Server 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ck
I'm new to Debian and installed it with Cinnamon because I want to learn some OpenCL programming in Linux. I have a Nvidia GT 525M GPU. Once the operating system is installed, I followed [URL] ..... article to install the proprietary Nvidia drivers. As the forum suggested, instead of creating an Xorg server configuration file, I installed Bumblebee according to [URL]..... article.
But when I restarted my machine after completing all the steps when I try to log in I get the follwoing message:
I have a LMDE (Mint Linux Edition based on testing, now Wheezy) i386 that I just did a dist-upgrade on and now it isn't properly detecting my monitor resolution. I have two 1680x1050 monitors, one attached to the DVI and another to a VGA video switch. When I rebooted to the new 2.6.38-2-686 kernel both monitors were giving me 1024x768. I futzed around for a while and could then get the the DVI monitor to correctly identify the proper resolution, but the VGA monitor resolutely refused to see more than 1024x768.
I was able to get the proper resolution by entering these commands:
Should I file a bug report, and if so, with whom? I have to say, the Debian bug report process is not too newbie (or even not-so-newbie) friendly, but I'd like to help if it doesn't require me to hand-configure a MUA.
Also, I suppose I shouldn't mention it in a single post, but my mouse is behaving rather unpredictably now (click speed, selecting), and trying to reboot dismounts the file system and then starts up again giving me my display manager (in my case KDM), without restarting the system (both from "sudo reboot" and trying to restart with KDM or the Gnome widget). If I really want to restart the system I have to halt it first and hit the power button.
I have a computer with an integrated graphics card. It is ati radeon xpress 200 series. It have installed OpenSuse 11.1 on my computer with KDE 4.1. I have heard that we have to manually install ati and nvidia drivers. Or can the open source drivers run my card. has the drivers for my card already been installed. Or should i install it manually. I donot have an internet connection on my pc. but i can download the required files from another computer and bring them to my pc.
I have ubuntu on a Vaio VGN-A290 with the ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 M10 graphics card. I I installed the Eternal Lands client but it keeps crashing on me. Upon crashing a massage told me that I should make sure the video drivers are up to date. I then went into system --> Administration --> Hardware drivers and it says "no proprietary drivers are in use on this system." So my question is how do I install a driver for the ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 M10?
I'm having all sorts of problems after doing my first update (#1. safe-upgrade, #2. full-upgrade) in over a month.
Anything from no Nvidia linux-headers being found to any VT not working. After completely removing all of the previously tried Nvidia presence on my PC, is there a safe way for me to install the non-free drivers?
Where should I get the drivers for the video card R7 260X to run on Debian Wheezy? Because it cant be from amd site, considering that I installed from their site, but when running apt-get check is said to me that there was the missing dependence fglrx-core..I also couldn't remove it, because it had other unmet dependencies... After long time attempting to solve on my own I just got enough pissed that I formatted the machine.Now I am asking here to find out what is the best practices when installing those drivers, because clearly I wasn't doing it right...
When i finish install debian7.8 wheezy in my Acer computer(graphics :GT750M+ Inter HD Graphics Family),
"GNOME3 Failed to Load" " Unfortunately GNOME 3failed to start properly anmode" "This most likely means your system(graphics hardwcapable of ....."
i check system's Driver status:Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe(LLVM 0x209) Experience Fallback so i try to install nvidia drivers in debian,but i have failed many times. everytimes i finish install nvidia drivers i 'startx " failed
I got a new motherboard since my last one failed and this one has a Realtek RTL8168D/8111D PCI-E Gigabit on-board NIC. I noticed when I attempted to load Wheezy on her, she complained about the drivers not be listed in the Debian kernel. Is there a way I can slip in the drivers via USB or some other method so I can do a netinst of Debian on this new system?
This is Wheezy x86_64. I tried two different ways to install kernel 2.6.38 on my machine and both have failed. First thing I did was to follow this guide [URL]... el-26.html) and try to compile the latest stable from kernel.org. I don't know why, but it turns into kernel panic when I try to run it. Second thing I did was to install the liquorix 2.6.38, and that also fails, seeming to boot but hanging a second short from the login. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Is there a special way to install kernels in Debian? This is the first time I tried compiling a kernel, so it's quite likely that the problem is sitting 6 inches from the computer screen. Also, how would I remove those kernels since they're obviously not working? I know I could remove them from the grub menu but I'm not sure how to completely delete them.
I want to migrate to bind 9.10 in debian wheezy. I don't want to take the source code from debian Sid since its an experimental version. So I have taken source code from official bind forum and compiled in debian wheezy. The compilation is successful but I am having problem in running the binary in debian wheezy. It's not honoring the binary even though I run it. I am not getting error messages on console but still it is not running.
I want to know whether its feasible to do this Or is it dependent on any other system libraries to make it run ?
Last few lines from Strace Dump ==============================
I updated to Wheezy from Squeeze and whilst I can make changes to sources.list manually, I can't do some updates in Software Sources.For instance, the 3 check boxes under "Download from internet" are all un-ticked and I can't change them if I wanted to - even though the sources.list is set up with "main contrib non-free"I cannot amend the download server either - it works out what the best server is but wont update if I tell it to.
Last week I upgraded from Squeeze to Wheezy. Everything seems to be in order, except now launching empathy will get my 4 separate GNOME keyring prompts in a row. I guess my keyring got copied for some reason, but I†can't figure out what package to install to deal with my keyrings, as gnome-keyring-manager is only in sid...
i just migrated from fedora to debian, and i already love this system. it only seems that i am facing a serious problem with this graphic card.running on debian 8.3.booting my system, i do get this message:
[8.167619] [drm:radeon_pci_probe] *ERROR* radeon kernel modesettingfor r600 or later requires firmware-linux-nonfree.
after that the system seems to run normally except of the fact that it doesn't look well and i cannot set the appropriate resolution for my monitor.
lspci -nn | grep VGA output: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Barts PRO [Radeon HD 6850] [1002:6739]
already tried both, the open source and the proprietary drivers, and both cause serious problems.
i tried to install the proprietary driver following these instructions: URL...
after restarting the system i get a black screen with a blinking cursor at the top left corner, and that's it.
then tried to install the open source driver following these instructions:URL...
but after restarting the system my monitor goes into some sort of a "sleep monitor mode", and that's it.in both cases i wasn't able to boot the system through the recovery mode, so i didn't know what else to do and re-installed the whole system each and every time i tried a driver.let's say i have installed the system like 5 times in the past 12 hours.
I use a 'wifi hotspot' provided by my mobile (android) phone for internet/email and to connect to my wifi capable HP p1102w printer. Installation and use of the printer worked perfectly until I bought a new phone, again android with 'wifi hotspot' capability. The wifi connection on my new phone works fine for internet and email but it totally fails to detect my printer.
I have tried to detect and connect to the printer using system-config-printer and using the HP utility hp-setup. Both fail to detect the printer on the 'new' wifi network.
The old network connection which detects the printer as expected gives the following output:
I upgraded my main PC's Xfce 4.6 to Xfce 4.8 this morning.Now, every time I start Thunar for the first time after a new boot, it takes about 30 seconds to appear, and then about 10 seconds later, a second instance of it appears.After that, Thunar appears instantly every time I start it during that same session. But if I shut-down or restart my PC, Thunar again takes about 30 seconds to start up, and a second instance of it appears about 10 seconds later.
Google searches seem to indicate that people running other distros are also experiencing this problem. On advice in a different forum, I deleted the ~/.config/Thunar folder and restarted my PC, but that didn't help -- it created a new Thunar folder, but the long delay and the double-Thunars are still there every time I run Thunar for the first time in a session.
I'm running a Squeeze system on a PC with an ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card. Until recently I had been using the fglrx drivers without difficulty, but a recent upgrade removed fglrx - apparently this is because ATI has yet to release drivers for Xorg 1.7. So I've switched to the open source driver (radeon), but am not getting any 3D acceleration - hence can't run desktop effects in either kwin or compiz. When I run "glxinfo | grep OpenGL" I get the following:
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.6.1 OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20 OpenGL extensions:
It's the software rasterizer that is the problem, I gather. After Googling for similar problems encountered by others, I've installed firmware-linux and firmware-linux-nonfree, but to no effect. All fglrx-* packages are purged. Does anyone have any other thoughts? (I don't currently have an xorg.conf file in use.)
