Debian Installation :: GPU Overheating - ATI Open Source Driver Installed

Jul 17, 2010

First of all I must say that I am new to Debian, but not newbie on Linux. I am the Arch Linux user too, and I managed to solve identical problem on Arch. So, as I want to try Debian I am facing the same problem again. Problem is that my GPU is overheating. I am using Ati open source driver. I installed it following the procedure on Debian wiki. On Arch I solved it with proprietary driver fglrx. I tried the same solution here but it doesn't work. So I am stuck with open source drivers.

The difference between Arch and Debian (fglrx vs. Ati open source) is 10 C degrees. Debian Ati open source is much hotter. And ofc I am facing the low battery life too, because of this. My laptop is using much higher energy consumption with open source driver (almost double). How can I check my energy consumption on Debian? I read about some xorg options. I tried it, but no effect. As I am on Debian testing I am using kernel 2.6.32. Does this kernel supports xorg video energy consumption options?

Ubuntu :: Performance With Open Source Radeon Driver With X1650

May 28, 2010

I have a performance issue using the open source radeon driver. I normally would just attribute this to the driver still not ready, but it was working fine on the Mandriva install I just wiped out. I replaced madriva in order to have Qimo sessions for my daughter to use. When I try to run glxgears the gears basically don't move.

Ubuntu :: Revert Back To Open Source Lucid Driver?

May 31, 2010

I made the error of installing FGLRX on lucid. After the install, Plymouth resolution sucks and my laptop will not come out of suspend/hibernate. When I use jockey-gtk to disable FGLRX, it will not allow me to use compiz for 3d graphics. However, out of the box, I was able to run compiz no problem.How can I revert lucid back to factory form, where it was able to perform 3d acceleration without the use of FGLRX?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Radeon 5770 Open Source Driver

Mar 2, 2011

I just upgraded my rig from a 4770 to a 5770 video card.

My 4770 had basic 3d support out of the box with the open source radeon driver. My 5770 doesn't seem to (basic rendering only with no compositing), although this page suggests it does:

[URL]

Is there anyone out there who is running a 5770 or knows how I can upgrade to a newer version of the open source driver? I'd rather not use catalyst (Id don't game with ubuntu) and I found the open source driver to be quite nice.

General :: Open Source Licensing Legalities Installed In An Valid Business Organization?

Feb 1, 2011

I'm wondering if any Open Sourced OS and services/applications installed in an valid business organization, is there anything I should be worrying about in terms of using open source os/applications for business?

Reason being is in case auditing comes, does our open source items get audited?

I have Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS running in my internal network running multiple services/applications and being used for business (LAMP stack, SVN, BIND, etc...).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Proprietary Vs Open-source Driver On Radeon HD 5xxx

Aug 23, 2011

I have ATI Radeon HD 5650 (code name Redwood) on Ubuntu 11.04. And I have been experimenting with open-source and proprietary driver.

The problem with proprietary driver is bad 2D rendering when watching movies in VLC (and any other), because if vsync is off, video is tearing and when its on, the video seems to stutter (the background moves in steps, not smooth). I have tried open-source radeon driver and its far better, but that driver doesn't have 3D acceleration for playing games. I was trying to play Hive Rise, and with proprietary driver works great, but with open-source the game starts, but i don't see the interface (start game, options, etc.).

It seems that Mesa 7.10 (in Natty) doesn't have 3D support for this card, but Mesa 7.11 (in Oneiric) will have that. Is that correct? I just want to have good 2D performance with ability to play games.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Wine WoW Wrath Of The Lich King With ATI Open Source Graphic Driver?

Feb 18, 2010

Just wondering if this is possible? Total n00b with linux, this is my *thinking* 3rd week using Ubuntu 9.10. And I am using my system for surfing the web, listen to music, video`s and chatting. And I got the "funny" tough`t of trying to maybe play World of Warcraft again on this computer. Yes I have run it before when I had XP and W7 on it. The w7 experience on this computer was a bad mistake. So yeah, the thing I am really wondering on is this: Wine, WoW with WoTLK ( Wrath of the Lich King ), with the newest Open Source ATI graphic driver?[URL].. According to that page (you have to Ctrl-F and "Open source ATI drivers" to find the what I mean ) it is possible, but I am wondering on how to do it?[URL].. and been reading on different sites that you can play games with wine in a new X. Curious on how that can be done, and if that MAYBE is the best thing to do with my Wow game. Havent installed it YET, thinking of downloading the web installer after this post. If the moderators should find this is the wrong place for this to be asked, move it to the "Wine" section, if its better placed there.

Ubuntu :: Installed Kubuntu With Wubi For Windows 7 On My Hp Pavilion Dv6 - System Continued To Freeze After Some Minutes Due To Overheating ?

Jul 22, 2011

today i've installed kubuntu with wubi for windows 7 on my hp pavilion dv6 with processor Intel Core i7 Q720 @1.60GHz with 4 Gb of RAM @ 64bit with NVIDIA Geforce GT 230M but i've had some problems.Infact the system continued to freeze after some minutes due to overheating so i restarted the computer and the Bios told me that to prevent damage to internal components the computer has been freezed. I repeated the process and i checked out the temperature with the desktop widget and it actually reached after some minutes 80-85� C so i cleaned the computer and the temperature turned back to normal (50-60�C) but the problem continued to exist! After several minutes the computer freezed again and the BIOS told me the same things he told me before (90� and computer freezed due to prevent damage for overheating).

Debian :: Can't Compile A Driver From Source (make Cmd Fails)

Nov 14, 2010

I'm trying to compile the D-Link netcard driver from the official source, and when I first ran "make," I got an error that "make" couldn't be found. So I installed "apt-get install make," then make told me that it needed gcc, I installed "apt-get install gcc." Now make says: make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [LINUX] Error 2 and exits.

I suspect that I need to install some package group which will handle the make and make install (rather than manually trying to fix one hole after another)

Debian :: Writing Open Source Java Applications?

Feb 13, 2010

I always wanted to get into writing open source applications for debian. The only problem I ever saw was that I do not know C++ which seems to be the popular language to build applications. My expertise is Java and I think that java applications could run on debian just as good as C++ applications. What I do at work is write applications in java for unix systems so I think I porting my skills over to debian would not be a problem. I have not seen any applications in java on debian yet and thought people might have a problem with them. Is there any reason more java applications are not being written on debian? Also does anyone know of hand if there is any orphaned java application for debian. I had a look on this page but it is hard to know what language the application is written in. [URL]

Debian Configuration :: Building (Wireless Adapter) Driver From Source

Debian Multimedia :: No 3D With Radeon HD 4200, Open-source Drivers?

Feb 21, 2010

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.)

Debian Hardware :: 8.0 Crashed After Installing ATI Open Source Drivers

Sep 11, 2015

The ATI/AMD graphics hardware is:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Oland [Radeon HD 8570 / R7 240 OEM]

I installed "AMD/ATI Open Source Drivers" according to: "[URL] ....":

Reboot after "apt-get install firmware-linux-nonfree", the system automaticly reboot after grub, then went black screen forever (no tty1,tty2.., seems cannot booting). I reinstalled serveral times but same problem (having tried both cd/live dvd, debian8.1/8.2).

It seems that "firmware-linux-nonfree" is the cause, since debian crashed once firmware-linux-nonfree installed.

The problem went away by installing ATIProprietary driver("[URL] ....").

PC is dell 9020, i7

Ubuntu Installation :: Open Source PIM Chandler For 10.10?

Feb 13, 2011

I've read about the open source PIM Chandler and how it's kind of a new twist on software of its kind (although I guess I missed the release by a few years...) and I've been dying to try it out. I've had no success, however. It seems the most recent release is for Jaunty and I'm running Maverick. I guess there are some pretty well entrenched dependency issues. These talk about it: here and here. There doesn't seem to be a solution anywhere.. Does anyone have a potential solution to this? Has anyone even heard of Chandler?

Networking :: Ath9k Driver Installation With Source From Kernels For 2.6.34 ?

Oct 22, 2010

I have had some trouble with understanding the wireless drivers. I am using backtrack 4 R1, and the reason was merely for the network and having many necessary networking dependencies already there. However I found that I am using a HAL for the ath9k and madwifi-ng drivers, thus I must patch the card and go through all of that.

The specific distribution I am using is Backtrack 4 R1 with KDE3 and ubuntu on the 2.6.34 kernel. I know I have through an update script found the wireless drivers and downloaded them, however all attempts to get it to fully work haven't helped. I checked the forums, and it doesn't seem like they consider it a backtrack specific question but a linux specific question. I performed hwinfo and it returns ath9k and the memory address, channels 1-14, wlan frequencies(2.412,2.417, 2.422, 2.427, 2.432, 2.437, 2.442, 2.447, 2.452, 2.457, 2.462, 2.467, 2.472, 2.484. I have all modes of encryption set.

I am using both ifconfig and iwconfig with a wicd frontend to access the network typically. Unfortunately I am only seeing a wlan0 and no ath0. Furthermore, I manually issue these commands I am doing so I set each aspect of the card up (i.e essid, channel, mtu, fragmentation, etc....).

Now I did shed some light upon this in the sense that I found out how to initialize the madwifi-ng hal abstraction layer via 'start airmon-ng wlan0' and then it returns.....

mon0 ath9k py0 etc. etc. etc.( this isn't exact I am unfortunately not at my computer. But the device is then able to work, however I am not sure as to why I am not able to have the ath0 device in my wireless devices if indeed everything else appears to be ath0.
