Debian :: Security Risk Of Proprietary Firmware For AMD GPU Drivers?

Jul 27, 2015

I need to build a new computer, and I'm considering buying an "AMD-oriented" motherboard, that comes with an integrated ATI Radeon GPU.But, being a big Free Software enthusiast, that likes to have completely free drivers for everything, and knowing that the "open source" Radeon driver, for ATI/AMD GPUs, uses a non-free firmware, I'm reluctant about this... Above all, because I don't know what kind of security risk I'm taking, when using a proprietary firmware.

And, having read what was recently reported about the security of proprietary firmwares, in general,URL... if the firmware component of graphics cards drivers poses any security threat?(I mean, can the firmware part of a graphics cards driver be used to do anything more than executing instructions to display graphics?)

Debian Hardware :: ATI Proprietary Drivers Broke Touchpad And Keyboard?

May 5, 2010

I have a big problem after i installed the ATI proprietary drivers. I expected something weird to happen when using proprietary stuff, but I did not expect them to stop my touchpad from functioning

I've been running sid on that laptop for ages and followed the guide on the Debian wiki and installed: "apt-get install linux-headers-2.6-$(uname -r | sed 's,.*-,,') fglrx-control fglrx-driver". This worked like a charm and the module got compiled OK. I then rebooted the computer (couldn't restart Xorg, the screen went black for some reason, but that's not the issue here) but when the kernel started it dumped a lot of udev errors concerning libsane. It booted up OK though, but when i tried to log in i couldn't use my keyboard or my touchpad. My external keyboard and mouse worked, but i had to disconnect them and connect them again to get them working. I suspect that the laptop keyboard and touchpad are connected by usb internally, but they are tricky to disconnect and reconnect

I then did a "apt-get remove" on all those packages installed and also an "apt-get install --reinstall" on the kernel. But I still have the same problem. I suspect that dkms did something bad, but I can't figure out what to remove or reinstall to get around this problem. I also tried to remove libsane, since udev dumped a lot of error messages, but I don't understand what the connection is there (except of course that udev is used for the keyboard and touchpad)

I also don't suspect the "unstableness" of sid to be the problem here. Rather something I haven't removed or reinstalled.

Does anyone have an idea about what I can do to revert this? I really don't want to reinstall the laptop.

Edit: Just, to sum it up. The real question here is: "How do I get rid of all the mess that ATI proprietary driver caused and installed?"

Debian Configuration :: Proprietary Nvidia Drivers Stopped Working After Upgrade

Apr 5, 2011

My GNOME system stopped using the proprietary NVIDIA drivers after the recent dist-upgrade to v6.0.1. It was working perferctly before that.

My inxi output:
inxi -F
System:    Host thirra-ws1 Kernel 2.6.32-5-686 i686 (32 bit) Distro Debian GNU/Linux squeeze/sid
CPU:       Dual core Intel Core2 Duo E7500 (SMP) cache 3072 KB flags (sse3 nx lm vmx) bmips 11703.9


When I tried to configure the screen resolution using NVIDIA X server settings, I was told to run 'nvidia-xconfig'. I ran it, restarted X but my resolution is still stuck at the maximum of 1024x768. I've tried running the above many times with the same results. I even tried aptitude reinstalling but still the same.

Debian Hardware :: Installed The Ati Proprietary Drivers Directly From Ati Which Resulted In Horrible Performance?

Jul 7, 2011

This is my 2nd attempt at installing Debian since 5.0 several months back but I am determined to get it running this time.Install of 64bit Squeeze went well, installed the ati proprietary drivers directly from ati which resulted in horrrible performance.Uninstalled that and followed to the T. At the "aticonfig --initial" part I got the message "No supported devices detected" soI went ahead and entered the config manually. Now on normal boot I get a black screen and I can't seem to boot into Recovery mode as it hangs at Tray or ANSI.

Ubuntu :: Increasing Mouse Speed On Startup?

Mar 24, 2011

I have a HP Mini 311c that has an ALPS touchpad. Linux Mint detects it as a mouse and so when I try to increase the speed of the mouse, nothing actually happens. I've created a script which includes just the following code:

xset m 5 2

This is saves as startup-script.hl on my Desktop. I then go into Startup Applications and add the script in there. But when I reboot my Netbook the mouse is moving at its default slow speed. I've ensured the script file is allowed to execute (right click > properties > permissions) and have also tried copying it to the init.d folder with no luck.

One thing I have noticed though is that straight after I login to Mint the mouse cursor does move at the speed I want, but after a few seconds reverts back to the slow speed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Set Nvidia Drivers - Dual Monitor Without Proprietary Drivers?

Apr 8, 2010

I have been using ubuntu for quite a long time, and for the first time, I am now unable to set nvidia drivers to work. I have just install ubuntu 9.10 amd64 on an AMD 64 athlong X2 with a GEForce 6500 nvidia card.

The only reason I need the proprietary drivers is to use two monitors.

I am going crazy, I have tested everything I have found on the web. I have tried all the nvidia drivers version, I have tried envyng, ... but nvidia do not work!!

I am trying Xinerama with nv, but it does not work either!!!

Here is my xorg.conf file in which I have tried to use nv driver to set dual monitor. X fails to load and it says that screen 0 is deleted, that devices are found but there are no matches in the config file. Any clue?

Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/:unscaled"

Ubuntu :: Changed From The Proprietary Drivers To The Regular NVidia Drivers - Startup Logo Is Displayed At A Really Low Resolution

Jul 13, 2010

I installed Xubuntu the other night (completely wiped machine) and started doing all the updates on it. After a couple of reboots, I changed from the proprietary drivers, to the regular nVidia drivers. After doing this, the startup logo is displayed at a really low resolution. Is there a simple fix to change this and use the nVidia drivers as well?

Ubuntu :: Can't Find Proprietary Drivers

Feb 20, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu today and when I go to Hardware Drivers it tells me that there are no proprietary drivers on this system and doesn't show any for me to activate. Oddly enough when I was running the live CD of Ubuntu I got a list of a few drivers to activate, namely the Broadcom STA Wireless Driver and the NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver (version 185).

Ubuntu :: Enabled The Proprietary ATI Drivers?

May 2, 2010

I just built a new HTPC and decided to give Ubuntu a whirl again. I downloaded and installed 10.04, and set about configuring it. Everything looked great, except my audio over HDMI didn't work. I enabled the proprietary ATI drivers, and bam! the audio works! Great. Only one problem: there's a two inch border around my TV (not there with the open source drivers), and Boxee flashes colors rather than playing videos (a known bug. It's fixed by not using the ATI proprietary drivers). So, I disabled the drivers, rebooted, and the Boxee video works, the border/gap is gone, but once again the audio doesn't work. I've been through all the sound settings, and I have everything set to the HDMI output, but still nothing. I've tried various fixes I've found through googling

Ubuntu :: Video Lag Under 10.04 - Using Proprietary Ati Drivers

Oct 3, 2010

I'm experiencing video lag in games. I'm using 10.04 lts 32 bit and the latest version of proprietary drivers. For example I play hon and so and then it freezes for a small period of time which is frustrating.

I don't understand, my specs are:

Under this specs it should run perfectly. What's the matter? Ati drivers have poor support under linux? I tried updating to 10.10 and nothing. I tried contacting customer supporot amd but they can't help me. Nice isn't it?

Ubuntu :: Updating With Proprietary Drivers (AMD)?

Jul 13, 2011

I recently bought a new PC and it has an AMD GPU. I've been using Catalyst because the open source radeon driver gave me poor performance in games (maybe by 12.04 I can use it ).I've had some updates show up recently. This brings me to wonder if I have anything at all to worry about. This is a production machine and I don't want to muck around with fixing issues brought on by my usual apt-get upgrade.Currently, I've been avoiding updating a few packages related to the Kernel and Xorg:


The following packages have been kept back:

linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic

The following packages will be upgraded:

linux-libc-dev xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-radeon

3 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded.I had an NVIDIA issue back on Ubuntu 8.04 after updating once, due to a kernel update. I had to revert to an older kernel and mess around a bit to fix my installation. I don't have any experience with Catalyst. Basically, I want input as to whether or not it's dangerous to update this sort of stuff. I don't want to mess around fixing issues caused by a rogue update

Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit
AMD Radeon HD 6450
Latest proprietary driver available from Jockey.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Configuring New Proprietary Drivers?

Aug 26, 2010

I'm new -and inexperienced- Suse user, I have a new laptop with an ATI 5650 graphic card. I have been using the Radeon driver with very low performance for a while. this driver was installed following the "Xorg -configure" procedure as descibed in the forum. Today I installed the newly released driver from Ati. this is what I did:

1) in /etc/X11/xorg.conf I changed "radeon" with "fglrx"
2) I run the driver downloaded from the ATI website
3) I run the command "aticonfig --initial"

I'm no longer able to start the X server (the computer boots to full console) and I have no idea how to go forward. if I give the command "startx" I get a "segmentation error" and I go back to console can somebody point me in the right direction?

General :: Download Old Ati Proprietary Drivers For A 9250 V/c?

Dec 11, 2010

I've tried a number of locations, that may have old proprietary ati drivers for the 9250 v/c (video card for any one who was wondering). currently using ubuntu 10.10, and from what I've read else where either my card is too old or my OS is too new. I have seen a few site (2 or 3) for old ati drivers, but they are for microsoft, not linux.

I went to the AMD web site down loaded and attempted to install the latest drive, but to no avail. I've used the software center provided by ubuntu, I have the latest drivers from them, unfortunately can't play any of the non-flash games, either using wine, plays on linux and cedega. From what I have read (and please correct me if I'm wrong) I need to install the old drivers provided by xfree86 or ati.

I want to install the 3D accelerated closed drivers for my ATI card but I can't seem to find them in the repositories, is there no easy way to install these drivers for CentOS? I can't find anything in the Wiki on this subject either.

oops I tell a lie i just found something on the Wiki, I'll give it a try.

Fedora Installation :: F15 Broke Proprietary Drivers For Printer

Jun 4, 2011

I heard that the new release would work smoothly and decided to install fc15 on 5 computers at once (four 64-bit AMDs running RAID and an old 32-bit Compaq laptop). I now have only 1 of 4 printers working. One was an old and slow but reliable HP6P and the others Samsungs of various ages. I tried the workaround suggested in another thread for the HP6P (using MAKEDEV to recognize the parallel port), but I'm still unable to install the printer--the installation hangs searching for a printer. And Fedora 15 has apparently broken the proprietary Samsung driver.

The only working printer at the moment is a Samsung 2250 (the oldest) which has an open source driver, and that one won't currently print from the internet (it used to under fc14). It's pretty sad when a new release breaks computers whose major function is effectively (or rather ineffectively) a typewriter. I've tried both local and network installations using Gnome, system-config-printer, and the Samsung Configurator, but nothing seems to work. I hope a fix is forthcoming from Red Hat, Samsung, or the readers soon. I need my typewriter.
