Debian Hardware :: Install This Driver Of ATI Radeon HD 6370M
Jul 30, 2011
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.
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 have the graphic card: ATI Technologies Inc RS482 [Radeon Xpress 200M] and I want to set the driver radeon because when start the ubuntu 9.10 on live cd it's use this driver. Now load the radeonfb but when set on xorg the driver "radeon" while reboot the machine not work. When start gdm the screen becomes black and I need power off and change xorg.
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"
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 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).
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.
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.
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]
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.
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.
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).
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.
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 i´ 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)
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 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 (somewhat foolishly) decided to reformat windows XP and make my foray in the Ubuntu world with Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid just last week. It has treated me fairly well so far and with the help of others posts have been able to get most everything setup to my liking. However...My Problem:I tried to install the ATI drivers for my radeon 9700 using ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.run. I tried to install it using the Ubuntu/9.04 settings, hoping that I could get it to work like that and I was quite wrong. When I restarted my computer I was started in simple graphics mode, and now I'm trying to set things right again.'ve un-installed the fglrx drivers (I think...) and now I'm stuck. Play On Linux tells me that I need to install 3D acceleration, something I know my graphics card has..
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.
I realize that Canonical is not responsible for the Catalyst driver, but I can't seem to operate outside of the Ubuntu Classic (no effects) mode for 64 bit Natty, and I was curius if anyone else had encountered or resolved this.
When I upgraded from 10.10 (I was using the fglrx package), xorg would immediately crash. I was able to reach the gdm screen only using recovery mode. I uninstalled the fglrx package, and now I can boot into Ubuntu Classic (no effects) mode only (no other desktop will work) using the open-source driver at no greater than 1280x1024.
When I try to re-install the catalyst driver using aptitude or Administration->Additional Drivers, the installation fails:
(jockey.log: WARNING: modinfo for module fglrx failed: ERROR: modinfo: could not find module fglrx)
Similarly, package generation from the AMD page fails:
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).
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)
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.
